Limping behind technology's advances

Taking advantage of every suburbanite's dream, a skip of my own, I've thrown out all my cassette tapes, with regret for the unreplaceable ones - the radio recordings, the mixtapes by or for friends, and the tape I made one night of the sound of rain falling on Catford. Actually, that's entirely replaceable.

And today, I bought a new ironing board. Who would have thought ironing board technology would have advanced so much in 30 years? The new one has an automatic rachety height setting and hitech silicone pads to hold the iron. Fascinating.
