Our Mpls. newspaper reported today that the power company serving the area was planning to raise their electric rates. Apparently, electric usage was down this year and in spite of cost saving efforts, they were not able to make the PROFIT they had expected.

So...the company is going to make up the lower than expected revenue by raising its rates for all its customers. HOW CAN THEY GET AWAY WITH DOING THAT??? (Wait! The government sorta operates that way, doesn't it?)

Carol and I owned/operated two businesses for 16 years. Had we pulled a stunt like that during years when the sales/profits of our products and services were not as planned, we would have soon been out of business. We simply had to spend less than we brought in to make ends meet.

There is one major difference though...we had competition, and the power company does not. :fingerwag

From a cousin's email - I'll post the answers later, should anyone need them. I got them all, vintage granny that I am, except the dance question. We didn't dance! :wink:

Are you smarter than a 60-year-old?

This was harder that I thought it would be. The answers were on the tip of my tongue. I remembered, but ...

DON'T LOOK BELOW FOR THE ANSWERS until you have tried to figure them all out.


I carefully selected to whom to send this. It had to go to those who might actually remember! So have some fun, my sharp-witted friends! This is a test for us 'older kids'! The answers are printed below, after the questions, but don't cheat! Answer them first ... on paper or in your head.

1. After the Lone Ranger saved the day and rode off into the sunset, the grateful citizens would ask, "Who was that masked man?" Invariably, someone would answer, "I don't know, but he left this behind." What did he leave behind?

3. "Get your kicks, __ _________ ___."

4. "The story you are about to see is true. The names have been changed to ______ ___ __________."

5."In the jungle, the mighty jungle, ___ ____ ____ _____."

6. After the Twist, the Mashed Potato, and the Watusi, we 'danced' under a stick that was lowered as low as we could go in a dance called the "__________."


7. "Nestle's makes the very best ... _______________."

8. Satchmo was America's 'Ambassador of Goodwill.' Our parents shared this great jazz trumpet player with us. His name was _____ ____________.

9. What 'takes a licking and keeps on ticking?' __ ___ ____.

10. Red Skeleton's hobo character was named _______ ___ ________ and Red always ended his television show by saying, "Good Night, and ________ ________."

11. Some Americans who protested the Vietnam War did so by burning their_______ _______.

12. The cute little car with the engine in the back and the trunk in the front was called the VW. What other names did it go by? ____________ &_______________.

13. In 1971, singer Don MacLean sang a song about, 'the day the music died.' This was a tribute to ________ __________.

14. We can remember the first satellite placed into orbit. The Russians did it. It was called ___________________.

15. One of the big fads of the late 50's and 60's was a large plastic ring that we twirled around our waist. It was called the ________ ________.

16. Remember LS/MFT _____ _____/_____ _____ _____?

17. "Hey, Kids! What time is it? It's _____ ______ _____!"

18. "Who knows what secrets lie in the hearts of men? The _____ Knows!"

I believe I got all of the others correct.

I did not know 10 and 16 and I'm also not yet 60. So what is 16? I've not heard of that!

There were 9 that I knew for sure, and most of my guesses were right. I could hit myself over the Timex, as I KNEW that I should know that one. I guessed Bras on the burning, but knew that was not the answer they were looking for as there were two blanks. Numbers 8,10,16 & 18 are the ones that I had no idea. The rest (except Timex and Draft Cards) I either knew or guessed correctly. Not too bad for someone who is almost 15 years too young to "qualify" :lol:

I am quite sure I knew all of them at one time. But, at my age "doing good" is just being able to remember any of them.

When the old memory drawer gets full, it gets harder to find stuff in there, ya know! :roll:

My son had his picture in the paper today. I get the Prior Lake American, but this link is to the Savage Pacer (neighboring suburb). Humpty Dumpty

You will have to go to the third picture in the cue to see him. He is Humpty Dumpty in the picture and also plays the Knave of Hearts. The play opens this coming Friday night. I am so proud of that kid. :D

Yep, that's your son, all right. You have every right to be proud of Greg.

Having seen him 2-3 times, I recognized his face in spite of the Humpty Dumpty costume. Cool hat, too!

His poems are on a Facebook page. I invited those of you who I could think of off the top of my head that are on Facebook. If I missed anyone, let me know.
