Insulin pens that have basically replaced syringes and the fact that heart bypass operations are now as common as hernia surgeries (not that its good they're more common, but I'm going on seven years now surviving mine and a recent check showed the arteries are still in good shape). Oh, and artificial sweetener that tastes better than saccharine.

So many to list, but if we're talking about improvements to our quality of life, I would have to say the ability to sign up for streaming services that don't include commercials. I absolutely love that!!

So much has changed but to list only one thing.......my choice would be computers and the Internet. Well, that is two things but what good is one without the other???

Hubby says remote start and heated seats in the truck. (He also first said it was me, his wife, LOL!) Two brownie points for him.
I said better fertilizers for my garden and better fabrics for clothing. I love modal cotton and stretchy jeans fabric. Who would want to go back to regular jeans?

! And seven hundred count sheet sets! what a difference in sleeping comfort.

Just a couple of days ago my brother said to me "Isn't Google the greatest?" Yes, it is. You can look up anything. We both love to take a lyric and look it up to remember the name of the song, stuff like that. I've been doing that for a long time but didn't realize he does the same thing. Must be the DNA haha

And then you find out you've been singing it wrong for decades.
