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????????

More fun Presidential facts, these about Andrew Jackson:

Andrew Jackson was sick through much of his life. He suffered from chronic headaches, abdominal pains, and a hacking cough, caused by a musket ball in his lung that was never removed, that often brought up blood and sometimes made his whole body shake. When younger he dueled numerous times - basically any time someone insulted him or his wife, leaving him "suffering grievous wounds that left him with bullet fragments lodged about his body". He weighed 130-something pounds on his 6'1 frame. Somehow he managed to live to 78 years old.

Jackson is also the only President to simultaneously have two first ladies. Since he was a widower, he first chose his niece Emily. He then added his daughter in law Sarah as co-hostess of the White House (as they were known at the time). Emily died of tuberculosis mid-Presidency and Sarah became the sole hostess.
