It appears that after having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years. They quickly came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago and reported that in the New York City Chronicle.
Not to be outdone by New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet; and shortly thereafter, a story in the Sacramento Examiner read: “California archaeologists, finding traces of 200 year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.”
One week later, The Birmingham Journal reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Greenbow, Alabama, Bubba Brown, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely no traces of copper wire. Bubba therefore concluded that, 300 years ago, Alabama had already gone wireless!
I’m just kidding! As many are aware, I have been away for a week’s vacation at my sister’s house down in Alabama. And yes, the smart phone did work. As did the internet. However, I made a neat discovery. I learned that, from time to time, it is just good to turn them both off! Which I promptly did.
And while the smart phone and the laptop were simply left alone to rest and recharge, so was my spirit. Now, as all of these are fully replenished, I hope to have lots to blog about in the coming weeks. Who knows? Maybe even my kin folks down in Alabama might log on, dig in, and find something intriguing right here on my web page!
