After being away from the Hodgepodge for several weeks, it is good to be back.

2. Is it harder for you to exercise or eat healthy?
We are trying so hard to do both. We are at the gym five mornings a week for at least 1.5 hours. Eating healthy takes a joint concerted effort, but we seem to getting the hang of it. I won't mention that I ate a whole bag of peanut M&M's the other day though.
3. June 7th is National VCR Day. Huh? Anyway this reminded me of something I saw on Facebook listing household items we no longer have and the VCR was on it. I couldn't put my hands on that list, but found another list here of 21 items we all had ten years ago, but which are now obsolete-
bookshelves (WHAT!!???), drip coffee makers, alarm clocks, file cabinets, desktop computers, printers, printed phone books, answering machines, fax machines, paper shredders, a Rolodex, CD racks, CD burners, china cabinets, home phones, entertainment consoles, DVD players, calculators, takeout menus, incandescent light bulbs, and cable TV
Your thoughts? How many on the list do you still have? Still use?
It would honestly be easier to list the ones I DON'T have and no longer use, but here goes.
bookshelves - do bookcases count?
alarm clocks - hate it but use it
file cabinets - have one hidden in the office closet and two in the garage desktop computer - I love my huge desktop monitor
printer - and why wouldn't you need this, although I use the scanner mostly
printed phone book - have a new one every year, but rarely use it
paper shredder - this is a must!
DVD/VHS player - but can't figure out for the life of me how to play the VCR thru the TV
calculators - a big screen one right here on my desk
incandescent light bulbs - I'm sure there are some in Dick's collection
cable TV - does Direct TV count?
4. What's something you see disappearing in the next ten years?
According to many predictions, manually driven cars will be obsolete and replaced with self-driving vehicles.
In fact, individually owned cars could be replaced with self-driving shuttles. I can only hope our children put us in a nursing home with one of those.
One more thing would be the traditional wrist watch.
5. How did you celebrate your birthday this past year? Is that typical?
We were enjoying the fall foliage, soccer and rugby games, and family in Northern Indiana last year for my November 1 birthday. This is not typical, but can't think of a better way to get older.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I was asked to share my tithing testimony in our morning worship service this past Sunday. If interested in seeing that, click here for the video.
