Definitely a different world, however, its best to stay in tune with your surrondings... True, today is a "throw away society", but in the mid 80s, I remember a better test of value was proffered by a Realtor acquaintance who said that every Christmas holiday time, he would go through his garage and throw out to the curb any box that hadn't been opened since last Christmas, mercilessly... He claimed that his family couldn't remember what was in the boxes he threw out, so no tears, no jeers...

In my storage, however, I still have 2 or 3 boxes from my first business I closed in 1985, that I just keep dragging around... This post is beginning to haunt me...

I had another acquaintance who suggested that when I closed that business, that I could have saved money, time and trouble by locking the doors and walking away... At the time we were talking in 1990, that felt repulsive to me; not so much so today, and in this economy; or is it wisdom that is just now dawning on me...
