    Really? When is the last time you used a typewriter? :)

    Probably 2002. Our office used to keep one around in case of computer problems, but got rid of it some time since then.

    That's my point; how long ago was that? :) I did typing in 8th grade, but the (private) high school I went to assumed that the girls who went there would have secretaries, not BE them. (Now admins are almost a thing of the past, too).

    My point is you darn well knew what she/he was talking about. You just had to correct a trivial point.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    I haven't read anything about ICLEI. I wonder if it extends to water. I'm thinking of the situation in Tombstone Arizona, which drew water from the Huachuca Mtns for well over a century and now, since a fire wrecked their lines is being denied access to their water.
