You too? Apparently, we were the only two people that didn't know.

I can't tell you but my new eyeglasses have lenses about 1" thick, and my arthritis is permanently crippling me. Boy this hard to type...

Seriously though, I don't have a television, so I read constantly on my kindle.
I also spend large amounts of time researching guns and watches.

I used to try and keep up with the yachting world but the longer I'm away from it and the worse my arthritis gets, it obvious that I won't be going back to that life.

So many things: YouTube for instructional videos, music, you name it; Netflix (of course!); Pandora; NASA' Explore the Solar System, Exoplanets, etc.; Wikipedia; tech sites; shopping; eBay; classics car sites; political sites; other gun sites; and just browsing/stumbling across cool things! Can't think of everything now but basically learning new things every day.

In the past I did a lot more on the web than I do now. Most of it these days is right here on FTF (much to the chagrin of some here!) mainly due to my declining health over the past few years. I have been on Craigslist for a long, long time (once met Craig Newmark in a passing conversation. Didn't know it until much later though. He is an unmemorable fellow though if memory serves me correctly.) Quite honestly it is somewhat odd that I do not do more on computers and on the internet given that I live literally in the birthplace of the personal computer. I probably know more people who work for or are founders of IBM, HP, Apple and any number of other major companies known to everybody here than anybody else. Kind of strange. Do you remember the first computer game "Pong"? One of the original engineers from Atari who developed the game is a next-door neighbor of mine. I used to work on Steve Wozniacs cars and met him many times (still see him around town these days).

I totally dig Youtube too. but I don't use it much.
