  • Now, it is 75 years later. I just had a crash course in hi-tech. My cell phone crashed this past Friday and I had to buy a new one. No probem, right? HA! Guess who did not have data backed up. GONE! Ok. Manually load all the telephone numbers and the internet sites access that I had. Then, try to connect to two vhicles with Onstar, Bluetooth and WiFi. For my grandkids? NO PROBLEM. For me? Glub, glub, glub...I was drowning. But I did not give up. I called my son. We plowed through it and it works.
    Speaking of plowing and now that I know all there is to know about computers (NOT), I'm thinking about converting a tractor to 12 volts. Why, you might ask, after being a diehard 6 volter all of these years? Well, it takes two hands and two feet to use the 8N to plow so, I'll install hands free calling and WiFi. Think my wife will miss the radio out of her car?

  • Got a nice weather proof radio on Maude. I put an mp3 player on it when I was plowing. Problem is I hit my elbows on it too much. I'll trade it to you for a case of beer.

  • My Herb 9N is 12 volt, and you just gave me an idea. I still have the original radio from my Saturn that I sold, and speakers are cheap.
    I left my phone at an airport in New Zealand. Google had saved somehow, a bunch of addresses.
