Predictions made in November 1968....FYI in Modern Mechanix
We came to Canada Aug 69...I was 15 then and sad to say I remember most of what they're talking about. I did have a good laugh so thanks Steph
Sounds like Mr Berry had OD'ed on Alvin Toffler's book, "Future Shock" - it's all from there, pretty much.
This was fun--what happened to the 4 hour work day and the robots to do the housework? Thanks for this link--I'm sharing it
I like the idea of earning $20 an hour constructing mini-dozers! $20 an hour was a LOT back then. I just wonder where that idea of mini-dozers went...
Oh and 100% plastic roads? Someone's imagination went wild with that one!
I remember self-moving sidewalks mentioned in several science fiction books
Haha, this was alot of fun to read. I thought it was interesting-- they predicted the population of the US would be up to 350 Million, which is only about half a million short (Not a bad guess, considering, haha).

But that's just part of it. We are...

For some time now, I've noticed that he drinks a lot more water than I'm used to seeing him drink, and sometimes he'll just lay around in front of his dish, only to drink more water before he either camps out again or walks off.And all through the day, I see him drinking way more than my other...

Sept. 2, 2015I received an email last night that left me in shock. The email informed me that I had won a Hubbie for 2015, in that of being "The Class Clown," and to this I have nothing but two words to share with you . . ."thank you."I mean it. Thank you for the past four years...
