The Washington Post had a contest wherein participants were
asked to tell the younger generation how much harder they
had it "in the old days." Winners, runners-up, and honorable
mentions are listed below.



Honourable Mentions:

In my day, we didn't have hand-held calculators. We had to
do addition on our fingers. To subtract, we had to have some
fingers amputated.

Nice and sunny but much cooler today. Nothing special seen on the morning outing, was hoping for more spring migrants but there are a few bluebells in flower already.
