{ Reminiscence mode on : fade to grey scale imagery with stutters at low resolution }

It reminds me of my youth when a passenger in the family car and how intent we were to gaze at the odometer during a voyage, just to watch it roll over at some relevant Magic Number. For me this is the literal meaning of milestones, and they were miles too ....

[ We never had a TV at home until my late teens except for a few weeks around the Moon landing in '69. This was to my great advantage. I read book after book after book. If you had said "internet" then I would have assumed some type of fishing device. ]

As for my milestones here at E@H, I have recently gone past a million yards [ as measured in inches ] ! :-) :-)

Cheers, Mike.

NO TV?

You would pass out at my house

I had my own when I was 12 and of course the one in the livingroom where we watched what the parents watched (Star Trek to Lawrence Welk back then)

I built my first satellite dish back in 1983 so I had free stuff and unedited stuff for almost 10 years (had one called NASA Select and have videos I taped from them that I imagine no other person has) and yeah I was the only one in the house watching the Moon landing.....and all the other missions before that.

Still have the 10ft C-band -KU-band dish and have a Dishnetwork HD dish and the old DirecTV dish and an old one I used as my ISP before they let me have this dsl.

I tend to save things......one of my cars since 1979 and my 4X4 since 1976 and you just reminded me of a day many decades ago I was driving the 4X4 to work and as I was driving I snapped a picture of the odometer as it flipped over to 0 again !

Funny thing is it got back up to 30,000 and something and then the guy doing the new exhaust put the pipe against the odometer sensor so as I left there it broke and even stopped the speedometer from working.

Never fixed that so it still says the same number and that was back around 1989

Hey a doctor testing my memory (ok it usually isn't that good these days)

Actually with the number of people I see coming in who have just Doctor Googled, that is exactly right.

Cheers, Mike.
