Friend Rick (Life 101) mentions deadlines at times. I signed up for a daily trivia question. I am very good at it, ha! , my average is 64% I think. Anyway one of the questions concerned Roman Numerals. CCIV I think. I believe my guess 214 and was right.
I was telling Sherry once of a deadline I had on a lesson plan. I started off with Roman numerals. That was great until I came up to the XX (#20) and up. It was a long lesson plan. Remember the typewriter? About XXIV ( # 24) I decided to go back and use correction tape and change to English. It is near impossible to place a sheet of paper exactly where the key strike is. What a mess. White out would have been a blessing. Actually never knowing ‘III’ was 3 would have been better.
LXVIII is 68
I am sure Roman numerals are not taught in class. I even wonder if typing (and document rules) is covered. I read the other day that cursive was no longer taught. Soon people will not be able to read some of our countries original documents.(smile)
What about signing their names! But I guess in today’s society it is not required. I signed some official papers the other day over the internet. Yeah there is a company with an APP for that! Wow my handwriting had improved drastically.
Changes, some of us old folk are finding it hard to adapt. Do you realize we are having to adapt MORE than any other group this age (65-90+) since time began. It is mind boggling the changes seniors have faced.
I have a digital watch. It actually takes me a few minutes and written instructions to set it. Any of my grand kids can do it as fast as I used to adjust my Big Ben pocket watch (10 seconds tops).
The 1960 Automobiles were nice.
