Sure isn't like the past years when it was hard for a person to be a "couch potato". Today we have remotes: TV, VCR (if anyone still has one of those), Sound System, CD Player and Blue-Ray DVD Player. Still have to get up and put a dvd or cd into the player, but sooner or later......... Electric Can Openers and Knife Sharpeners. No more using the old hand can opener or sliding a knife up and down a sharpening tool in the kitchen. With all the battery, and air, operated tools today, working in construction, or even doing home stuff, can be a whiz! Drilling, nailing, stapling is a cinch. Heck, with our new Chromecast, we can even operate our tv with an iPhone, not TV Remote. Drive to the grocery store, don't have to anymore if you don't want to. Order online and have groceries delivered to you. We have really become a society of easy, high-tech stuff to do things for us. Shoot, my step-parents, deceased for years, would've been totally shocked about a lot of things of today. What about yours? What do you think about all this high-tech stuff and gadgets? To tell everyone the truth, wife and I LOVE them!
