    Some years ago, I got a Harmony remote at Costco (where else?). It really saves the day. I haven't got it working with every connected device, but it sure integrates the TV/Audio?DVD/Cable box/DVR easily. I use the original 'smart' remote and Amazon Fire remote when I watch Amazon Prime videos because I never set up the Harmony for the Fire thingy (or if it's possible). But for the main 95% of our TV watching, the Harmony works well.

    I like those. I had one of those several years ago, but then equipment changed, and I never got around to updating things. Then the batteries leaked, it became useless. Haven’t gotten around to buying a new one. It worked great for awhile, though.

    How about "30 years sure has been a long time to be paying for these timeshares"?

    I feel old when movie stars younger than me look old. What must it be like to see your cute/pretty younger self in an old movie?

    I love this thread. I can relate to almost all of it!! :oops::cool:

    For me, it is when I make reference to something to make a point in a conversation and get a blank stare back. I then have to backtrack and explain what it refers to, realizing that it is something from a time before they were even born!!! :rolleyes::bawl::shrug:

    When I was fifty, a young man was hired in my department. He thought it was just so sweet that my husband could still play golf. He made a lot of comments as if I had one foot in the grave. He’s been there 25 years now, and I just saw his retirement picture. He didn’t look like a nursing home candidate

    Remembering when my Mom would tell me to go "turn the channel" on the TV. The only way to "turn" a channel is when the TV has a dial. Nowadays, my TV doesn't even have an On/Off switch - it's a button. :)

    And since I was the youngest I was the one that had to hold the rabbit ears if it was a bad reception night.

    And that dial would break so you would have to keep a pair of pliers handy so you could change the channel.

    What makes me feel old is not something I say, but what I don't say. Like when I don't remember someone's name or how I know them (when I should know that information well).

    It happened to me last night at a charity auction. There was a person there who served on an usher team with me for more than five years, and while I recognized him I couldn't place him or remember his name. Then about five minutes later, I remembered.

    So, rather than that, now you pay $100/month to get 200 channels, 198 of which you never watch.

    FWIW, our first "remote" was about 1963, and it was mechanical, a "clicker" that made the channels rotate . . . click, click, click, click, click, click, click

    I know, right? :) I have things on the TV remote set to "Favorite" channels, which removes all those lame ones from the listings. I cycle through them a few times, decide "There's nothing to watch" and put it on some home improvement show I've seen ten times. Some things haven't changed. ;)

    I know about the mechanical clicker thing from the early days of remote. The one we had carried a fancy name, like "RCA SPACE COMMAND" or something. It sounds even better saying it really slowly, and if you make your voice echo, like in the old Sci-Fi movies: "SSSS-PP-A-C-E C-O-M-M-AA-NNN-DDDDD!!!!!!!!!" Ah yes, life's little pleasures. ;)
