i am reading the daily mail here, and saw this article about inventions that change our lives. she have her favourites as i am sure many of you have. for me the electric kettle and toaster that can switch itself off. invented in ’60, ’58. the automatic washing machine ’60. fridefreezer ’63,colour tv 67, microwave ’74, digital camera ’86, laptop ’92, bagless vacuum ’93, nokia mobile phone ’99, broadband’00, high definition tv ’06.

she was commenting on the which report 60years 

these are trees just outside my kitchen window. as you can see, one tree they lop of the individual branches leaving a knob at the end of the branch, whilst the other they just lop of the whole end of the branch. one wonders why they dont just do that for all the trees. it is much quicker just to cut off the end of the stem and leave a stump, rather than a knob at the end.

earlier there were cars parked there, which they remove by lifting them onto trucks. i suppose those owners will have to pay a fine to get their cars back. there were warnings not to park on this day… but i think some of those cars may have been left there for ages by the owners who either have gone on holiday or use their london home as a holiday home.

    it makes modern life so much more interesting and enjoyable but i think u will have to add to your list, the smartphone, right? and a lot of others too. mine is very basic, and i daresay is not the usual. i was looking for energy saving light bulbs, but no mention of it. i have used it for years but only mention of light bulbs in that list was in 2015, led light bulbs.
