Fun fact:

Carroll Spinney has portrayed Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch consistently since 1969. He is 82.

In the 80s there was the first discussion about sending up a civilian with the space shuttle. Big Bird was tapped as an opportunity to reach young children and teach them about space travel. However, it was determined that the costume would be difficult to manage in tight quarters and zero gravity, so a teacher, Christa McAuliffe, was chosen instead to ride aboard the Challenger for what turned out to be its final flight.

Inez, in ten years they will be your go to person. You will say, "can you fix this". Did you see the commercial on TV. The two grandparents come out of their home and hand all their electronic stuff to their two grandchildren and say, "can you fix these". Give it time they grow up like we did.

I checked all of our smoke detector batteries before deciding whether to change them or not. Seemed the prudent thing to do.

Hard boiled eggs spin, uncooked eggs do not. Today one smoke detector stared to beep slow. Time to change batteries. First one in the hall, opened it and I had dated the battery, October 2013, I had changed all 6. Two and a half years and a note, "HAVE A NICE DAY", Today changed all 6 again and dated one in hall. Smoke detectors save lives.

TIME TO CHANGE ALL YOUR SMOKE DETECTOR BATTERIES????????
