Pencils are obsolete

"Pencils are obsolete" - that is what one yardsale seller told me yesterday as he sold me an electric pencil sharpener for a quarter. Personally I believe pencils will be around for at least 2 or 3 more years, so I bought it.

I did do some decluttering the other day. I recycled Jacob's baby wipe containers that I've had stored away for the last decade. And my husband thinks I never get rid of anything. Yeah right.

Ten years ago you likely could not have recycled those good on you for hanging on to them until you could recycle them (tell that to your husband next time you hang on to something :))

Besides, there's only like eight of them, so it's not as if you saved everyone of them!

EM - you're right. Some of them I am actually still using (for storage of small items)

I remember those things back when my kids were young-very handy storage! The baby food jars were awesome too for holding nails & screws. I still use them and have them all on a small lazy Susan in the garage...good times!

At the first race with the new Silverstone pit complex last season the garages of Red Bull, McLaren,
Ferrari and to some extent Mercedes disappeared into the unusual ‘railway cutting’ at the far end of the pitlane,
and could not be seen from the spectator area opposite.
