Is It Worth More than a Cup of Coffee?

It must be Friday so it?s time for, ?Is it Worth More Than a Cup Coffee??

This week I found an old Kodak slide projector tucked away in the garage. Having a projector was a necessity at one time. Now, who owns a projector? The dusty old projector isn’t worth much so I?m going with the cup of coffee today.

I decided I needed to take a break from writing on Fridays. I need some exercise, so I have started, ?Is it worth more than a cup-of-coffee, Fridays??

Any outside submissions would be greatly appreciated. I just need two photographs (cell phone quality is perfect. That?s what I use). Take a close up of your old technology and any drink: wine, soda, tea or coffee. It couldn?t be any easier. The email address in the left sidebar. Have a nice weekend!
