Happy New Year myLotters!

Another year gone, just when it got going. Wow how time flies. It seems the older we get, the faster time goes. Some of you probably remember thinking, as I did, that in the year 2000, we would be living in a space age time. While technology has come a long way, we are not riding around in space cars yet, even 16 years later. I hope you all have a wonderful 2016 ahead of you. Happy New Year friends!

@jstory07 Oh my I haven't heard that. New things have always quirks to be worked out. I don't know anyone who has one of these.

Happy New Year to you also. I bet a lot of people didn't know that 2016 is a leap year as you know this only happens once every four years. I know we are not riding around in space cars yet but I do believe that someday it will happen. Look at all the new technology that has come about since 2000. How true the older we get the faster the time flies.

It sure does. I guess we had better invent a way to slow it down just a wee bit.

When I was a kid, sixteen years would seem like an eternity. Now it seems like... well, wait. I remember the year 2000 and those silly glasses people wore at the New Year's celebration.

It seems hard to believe that the year 2000 was that long ago and how much the WorId has changed in 16 years.

We were suppose to have moving sidewalks and be on Mars to. Moving sidewalks would be destroyed.
