September 12th National Video Games Day

So how many hours out of your day do you play a video game? The older you are, probably the less you play but with all the choices today it may not matter. If you allow yourself to get started, it can easily be hours before you stop, hours that seem like minutes. . Atari, Nintendo, Xbox… well in reality, these are just systems, there are hundreds of companies that create the games separately. I have to give a shout out to Rockstar who created Red Dead, what is now an older game but really made well. Over the years, the games have gotten better and better, they have come a long way since the original pong game Atari put out.

How to celebrate – Play your favorite video game. Look at all the choices you have of games. Plan your playing time and stick to it!

June 7th VCR Day

June 7th – VCR Day

If you are under 20 you probably have no idea what a VCR is today. The best way I can describe it is, a machine with a flashing light that never went off! Many of us watched movies on our VCR. It was the latest rage in the 70’s and 80’s. Then we went to DVD’s but even they are dated in today’s world. Before the VCR machines we watched on Beta recorders, before that… well, you had to go to the theater. VCR stood for Video Cassette Recorder. Movies were played on VHS tapes. Just be thankful, those days are gone.

How to celebrate – Be happy you don’t have to store all those VHS tapes! If you still have VHS tapes make sure you save at least one working VCR. Re-watch all your home movies you saved on VHS.
