Amazing Technical Advances
Posted by George on June 25, 2019, 10:14 pm
Whilst making our weekly ramble in and around the district of Morpeth, my friend Tom and I are usually lagging at the back of the group deep in solutions to world problems. Our walk lasts no longer than a couple of hours or so but this gives us time enough. Today Tom and I, having tired of world problem solving, turned to reminiscing our childhood. As we are both in our eighties, there was much to consider.
We were both brought up in the basement area of Felling and have seen many technical changes to our world. With all its faults, we considered the mobile phone to be the most useful item ever invented. We don't mean the all singing and dancing smart phones which have lost their initial wonder and purpose. No, just that tiny telephone box complete with world wide connections – in your pocket. Can you think of anything more amazing than that?
