Breaking the cycle

Slaves to Technology

Slaves to Technology

Those of us born before 1990 remember a simpler time. We remember when phones where landlines and sometimes families shared party lines and if the month ran out before the money that was the first thing to go. We had three channels and only the very fortunate could...

Ladies stop

Ladies stop
