  • No truth better said, other than a certain Book I know about.

    Make a fun game, out of learning, and who knows, that child could take us to the stars, or even Galaxies. Beam me up, Scottie. Sadly, the children of today, may not know about Star Trek. I had one of those 'electric' toy/kits, but then, I also had a younger brother, not into leaving wires where connected. Now, the 'Erector Set,' where one could bolt everything together, younger brothers couldn't yet master the wrench, and that learning tool was semi-safe, but bendable. Ha.

    I noticed you were not working with a thirty or forty year old kit there. Digital?? Oh-Yeah, high tech.

    I do hope that some parents will see your article, or perhaps the paper would print an article, about constructive games, a child can construct, into a life of learning, and growing, as they construct their lives. Yeee-Haaa!!! and AMEN

    I tell you young folk today (early twenties) they will never be able to quit growing in knowledge, especially in their chosen field, as advancement in technology will leave them behind in the blink of an eye. The only thing I can think of that will take one along, in the blink of an eye, is the Rapture. (Sneaky, huh??)

    Fifty-Nine was a terrible Sun-spot year. We traveled from San Diego, to Japan, almost totally without Radio communication, due to the static, and sun-burst noise. Since we were heavy in the use of Morse Code, we copied a few messages, but not many...Teletype was not on board yet, the key was the only long distance mode of talking. Ah, the good old days, when a 'sail,' was still a canvas sheet on a mast.

    Nuff said. Thanks for the article.

  • Good read Brian, sounds like you grew up with a good background in electronics, and it paid off. I spent most of my time playing on the republican river, until I was a teenager, then working for farmers. I guess I should be a Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn, perhaps thats why I like adventure, who knows? As far as the youth today they could be a Grand theft auto, a Dragon slayer or a Starcraft fighter. What the hell, stranger things have happened.
