Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. Each year the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mindset of this year's incoming freshmen. Here's this year's list:

The people who are starting college this fall
across the nation were born in 1986. They are
too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.

The CD was introduced the year they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.

They cannot fathom not having a remote control.

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane, Boss, de plane".

They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading.

One of the worst happened to me on the Mt Rainier Scenic RR. I was firing for one of our younger engineers and we got to talking about the Freedom train, which I worked on as a teenager. I asked him if he visited it when it came to Tacoma and he replied that no, he hadn't seen it. Surprised, I asked him why not, as he's a real train fan. He replied that he was only one year old at the time... OUCH!
Well I didn't before, Thank's born in 35 :D
Happy New year all, or is that next year, I forget!
Cheers Willis
Well hey, Willis, I guess one thing you and I can look forward to this year is a good excuse for a bang-up Birthday Party!!! :D
