    We will need those things. For the transition, (God willing, it never happens), I have some other means to slowly ease my family back to the abacus, Who has a manual typewriter? I don't.

    In keeping with the survival mind set and what to do if we were to lose electicity; here are some helpful suggestions on replacements for items that we've all grown accustomed to using to make our life easier.

    As with any preparedness training, to be fully ready should the need arise, make sure that you know how to use these:

    I think that you're referring to "Pong". How bad would I be dating myself to say that I had that one?

    My kids would laugh at the (now) lack-of-technology that we had so much fun on. Of course, the other side of that coin is how it saddens me to watch them play with their friends and spend too much time going over rules (good Lord - play!) and I despair at how easily they get "bored".

    "Hey; look! They're some sand, dirt, wood, nails, water - go build something, make a mess, have some real fun!" and their friends look at me like I'm some kind alien.

    How did we all ever survive? Oh yeah, that's right... we had fun - and lots of it! We got dirty (at least I did), we played games with little to no rules and sometimes, heaven forbid, we got hurt. We also learned what not to do (or how to do it better next time).

    I actually feel kind of sorry for this generation filled with, and dependent on, technology. I hope that, at the very least, I'm teaching my children how to have a little fun without it. Of course, that means I'll have to get dirty (HOORAY!!!).
