    Funny! :)

    We had a rotary phone for far too long...hated those zeros! I have to say, though, and I know it's weird to even have an opinion on this, but I enjoyed the sound and feel of the dial.

    All technology starts somewhere...Alexander Graham Bell was brilliant. I'm surprised a dog's birthday has more response from professional educators than a post about an inventor who changed the world.:dizzy:

    Sorry, I didn't realise that as a professional educator there were certain threads I should be more interested in than others. :rolleyes:
