2011 - Day 196

As I left mum & dad's this morning there was a terrble screaching sound at the end of the road ... my brakes had died!  So I managed to go slow and steady to the Repair Place that I had the service done at in Feb ... and poorly car -

2011 - 196

Looks a bit sorry for itself, doesn't it?

The screaching was metal on metal ... scary that I had not been aware that the pads were thinning, until they had gone.

Still all OK now ... another bill, no work ... but I got a couple of letters written this afternoon and can (hopefullY play catch-up on LJ this evening.


Generation Y

With apologies for any in my friends who belong to this age range!


I've always wondered this myself... and now I know !!

People born before 1946 were called The Silent Generation..
The Baby Boomers were those born between 1947 and 1959.
Generation X people were born between 1960 and 1979.
Generation Y were born between 1980 and 2010

Why do we call the last group Generation Y ?

Y should I get a job ?

Y should I leave home and find my own place ?

Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours ?

Y should I clean my room ?

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes ?

Y should I buy any food ?

A cartoonist explained it very eloquently below....
