    wow glad I don't get that many bills I need a cast iron mail holder :-) But I suppose rich people in mansions get lots of mail from people wanting to buy their house with the fancy window openers :-) Love it

    Copper wire discovered

    .

    After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of Vancouver, B.C. scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

    Not to be outdone by Vancouver, in the weeks that followed, a Toronto, Ontario, archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Trenton. Shortly after, a story in the Toronto Sun read: “ Toronto archaeologists report a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than Vancouver."

    One week later, a local newspaper in Yorkton, Saskatchewan,reported the following: "After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Springside, Bob, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bob has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Saskatchewan had already gone wireless".

    Just makes a person proud to be from Saskatchewan.
