The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Kathryn P - Grandma Donna might have a better answer for you, but when I did it, I just made it bold myself by clicking on the bold "B" in the upper left hand corner, just above the message field.  This doesn't send a special notification or anything, but it just helps it stand out as a response to a particular person's post.

Thank you Tea for answering Kathryn P's question. It is a good way to do the highlight. As soon as we all get used to the forum our eyes will know these things. simple things seem difficult for all of us, including me.

I think I missed an update - are the discussion topics no longer available? I am being forced to move house in 2 months and desperately wanted some advice on how to go about cleaning and moving but couldn’t find anywhere to post about it.
