When I took my mother and aunt to England many years ago, they both were over 80. They were delighted to get the OAP discount everywhere we went, until they asked what it stood for. Kind of burst their bubble.

At 94 my aunt gathered some things to give away "to the old folks" at the local home.

Here, I thought banding was a team of scientists sedating their subject with a dart gun, then strapping an identification mechanism to the leg so that migratory habits could be tracked.

Have they extended the practice to tourists now? I'd heard they'd gotten Martha Stewart, but that seemed to be a different kind of deal.

Like everything in life, by the time people your age grab on to the internet shortcuts, they are extreemly uncool. I also hang aroung the bikeforums fixed gears and singlespeed site.
Terms like dh or lol will get you ostracised immediately. Smileys are also verboten.
Everything must be typed out in longhand or you are an old fogey.

ici, haven't seen you here for a while!

I find the notion of typing everything out quite contrary to the texting craze where everything is as abbreviated as possible. I notice that one of my English friends (quite a young, hip, musician type) has allowed his texting format to spill over into his email, so he writes things like "where r u now & dont 4get 2 rite." Yikes.
