Default Re: Do you remember?

Wow, thanks for all the great memories! I can still remember Winky Dink , and remember getting in trouble for writing on the TV screen without the pastic sheet over it!

I not only remember 8-Track tapes, but still have a player and tapes.... They were my Mothers. The real hot stars like Mario Lanza and Nate King Cole.

Learning to program using punch cards. My first home computer was a Commodore VIC-20. Met my wife on a Commodore64 computer network, QuantumLink. (It was the predecessor of AOL.)

I remember sitting at work and feeling the earth shake, being in Ohio that's unusual. Then joking with my Boss saying either it was an earthquake or a nuclear bomb just went off.... He turns on the TV and the station was doing a test of the emergency broacast system!

Going out to dinner was a big deal. Getting all dressed up to go out to McDonalds.

Thanks again!

Jerry

I remember "This is a test of the emergency broadcast system." They don't do that anymore, do they? If they do, it's been a long time since I've seen it.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

The test of the emergency broadcast system is usually at noon on the first Mon. of the month, although I have heard it at midnight. What's really scary is when they actually use the emergency broadcast system for an emergency. It happened when my daughter was a freshman in HS and at soccer practice. A train derailed with a chemical that caused air pollution to drift near the soccer field. I heard about it on the TV emergency broadcast called the other car pool parent. He rushed out to pick up the girls, but they weren't there. Other parents who were still there had evacuated them, but we didn't know where they were. They called later to say they were safe.
