    That’s actually a really great McGiver like idea, must do.

    Every survival kit should contain a reel of video tape from an unwanted VHS tape. When you stretch it, it becomes like a cord and is extremely strong. I call it video raffia. Great for binding things together and very resistant to the elements, hahaha!!!

    This may be true, however will our current decisions mean anything 30 years from now? We’ve already accepted mp3 playback quality to be sufficient for most situations, even though CDs provide better sound depth. Likewise, the books of today will be like cassette tapes of the past.
    I was at a stop light yesterday, and noticed a type of trash not seen anymore for visual entertainment…the cassette magnetic tape unravelled from its holder and blowing around in the wind.

    I will never give up books for gadgets-like books (:

    Thanks, Kachinkas. Things worked out all right. My daughter has grown up to be a high school language arts teacher. She loves to read.

  • kachinkas re:kachinkas's toss on February 20, 2012

    I don’t believe it…..

  • giligain re:tdfinearts's toss on February 19, 2012

    Heard on news today, people won’t have books 30 years from now with all the electronic gadgetry.

    Garage sales are not common here. We have trunksales and fleamarkets though. On queensday (koninginnedag) the whole country turns into one big orange fleamarket. Also there’s the internet of course, to sell and buy your stuff.

  • knah re:knah's toss on February 18, 2012

    You’re right Margreet serendipity is abundant at the Goodwill stores. I also like garage sales. Do people have garage sales where you live, Margreet?

  • margreet on February 18, 2012

    We have shops like that. Not one big organisation like Goodwill Industries, but local shops. Love to go there, sometimes because I’m looking for something, sometimes just for fun. I could have guessed you like’m, serendipity guaranteed :)

  • knah on February 18, 2012

    You never know what you will find at a Goodwill store. I once bought an Olympus 35mm camera for $1. Books are usually $1-3. There is a store about 1/4 mile from my house.

  • knah re:knah's toss on February 18, 2012

    Yes, Margreet, people donate unwanted clothing, household items, BOOKS, tools, toys, etc. and Goodwill industries resells these items in stores all over the world. They also, in the process, provide jobs for handicapped and economically challenged people. It is a charitable organization, so donations can be partially deducted from our income tax.

  • margreet re:knah's toss on February 18, 2012

    Is a goodwill store a shop where they sell secondhand stuff Knah?

  • knah re:kachinkas's toss on February 18, 2012

    One time, when my daughter was about 4 years old, I was reading to her and happened to mention that soon she would be learning how to read. She started to cry. She thought that when she learned to read I would stop reading to her. She was okay when I told her that I wouldn’t stop but that she wouldn’t want me to be reading to her when she was a teenager. At the time, she thought teenagers were the coolest thing anyone could be.

    It does resemble Petra.

  • Tandem25 re:giligain's toss on February 18, 2012

    No?

  • Tandem25 re:giligain's toss on February 18, 2012

    Looks like Petra.

  • Tandem25 re:kachinkas's toss on February 18, 2012

    Our 5 year old just started showing an interest in reading her little sister the wonderfully obligatory bedtime story. It’s so cute because she’s making up about half of it.

  • Tandem25 re:kachinkas's toss on February 18, 2012

    Not so disturbing g when you consider the origins though…

    Yup. It was Humpty Dumpty. Talk about a disturbing kids book. That book, and the rock-a-bye baby song… Yeesh!
