when my kids went to university, their room mates had never seen a black and white film.

completely understood. a few years ago, I had the worst eye infection ever, and it needed immediate attention. the only appointment my doctor could get was with a doctor who was in her 80's. Turned out she was brilliant, but what I remember most was sitting in her waiting room listening to a typewiter.
