Today's Question(s):

I use to have good handwriting both cursive and printing but that has changed over the years. I had exceptional printing while taking drafting class in school according to my teacher.

What do you think about your own handwriting? Now it's not so good, however with having issues with both hands in resent months it became worse but I can use my fingers and hands much better for other things.

Calligraphy, anyone? Have you done or do you like seeing? I always thought I'd like to do that but never got motivated enough to start it.

My handwriting looks like my Dad's which looks like his granddad's in the family Bible. Do you know whose handwriting yours might look most like?

Digital cameras. People always like to see what "they" would look like and they would be amazed. Cellphone & Tv require too much complicated other equipment to demonstrate their use. Digital Cameras are simple and require nothing else to make them work.

Happy Thursday!

Well, I can't go back before electricity with an invention that needs it so...you know what, I'm going to go with air conditioning in the home. It won't wow them like the personal computer but it also won't take hours to explain how it could be beneficial to them.

Today's Question(s):
Who do you know/have you known that had the best handwriting, cursive or printed, either one?
My cousin Barbara had lovely handwriting with lots of swirls and flourishes. It was always a treat to get a card or letter from her.
What do you think about your own handwriting?
I think it's pretty good considering that I'm a lefty.
Calligraphy, anyone? Have you done or do you like seeing?
I like seeing it. I have done a little bit of calligraphy myself. I still have a boxed calligraphy set that someone gave me, but all the ink cartridges for the pen have run dry.
My handwriting looks like my Dad's which looks like his granddad's in the family Bible. Do you know whose handwriting yours might look most like?
It looks a bit like my mother's, I think.

I think it would be fun to show people from the past a cell phone and all the myriad things it can do besides make calls. Then I'd take a picture of their reaction and show it to them.


Thanks, bjh!
