Dunno, Mrs. PW says he's not wired for 2 twenties. I know I just wanted to say that.

A question I've had is what happened to Formulas 1 through 408? I've heard there is a Formula 410, but, that it is kept in a secret government location as it is too potent. Something about entire houses disappearing...

Palewriter, don't forget the Winchester paddle action rifle, the 13.5 gauge shotgun loaded with bob-shot...not quite as effective.

Back on topic..as one who with the exception of my college years has lived on rural routes, you can meet all your postal needs through your mailbox. We'd leave money and stamps would be left there with change as needed. We'd mail packages, send and recieve registered letters, etc. As a boy, our post office was miles away behind the counter at the only store in "town". For a long time our address was simply HC 70 (Highway Contract) and then it was changed to Rt. 8. No box numbers, just Rt. 8.
Ahhh, progress.

I haven't seen a 7- or 9-track computer tape in years; they're all those serpentine cartridge tapes that fit into the silos for storage.

Yeah sure, old timer. I bet you don't have any 44rpm records either (hell, I got me a stack of 77s).

Garzo, don't know if you've seen any American mailboxes--the following link has a lot of pictures of unusual American residential mailboxes.
http://sblom.com/mailbox/ (Dial up warning!)

If I can find it, I'll post a picture of our post office in Oregon--few Americans have even seen one like it!
