I can remember while visiting my uncle in Canada you only had the volume and on/off switch, as there was only one channel to watch.

I remember jingling keys to change the channel.

I also remember using an actual "clicker" remote.

Remote? We never had a remote. I grew up watching everything in black and white. All the good stuff like Amos 'n Andy, Father Knows Best, Ozzie and Harriet, Jack Benny, Burns and Allen, Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey, and so many other shows I can no longer remember as they've faded into oblivion. I still remember having to watch Ruff and Reddy and Tom Terrific cartoons in black and white when I was a kid.

I think the best part of those times was that we didn't have newscasters going on a rant and preaching their own opinion. They just stuck to reporting the news. How I long for the days of Huntley-Brinkley and Walter Cronkite.

Maytag

A refrigerator runs 24/7 while a toaster does nothing except toast bread every once in a while.

By the time Jesse White got the Maytag gig he'd been in practically everything at one time or another.
