10 Great Inventions...Well, nearly!...

9 things, Large and Small that really make my day...
These things in some way or other I could not live without...
There not in any particular order...
1

Toast Pockets.

Little heat resistant wrappings for toasting sandwiches that go directly into a toaster...
Such an improvement on "toasted sandwich makers"...
2

MP3 and Media Players.

A complete music collection in a device smaller than a cigarette packet...
20 years ago we thought "cassette players" were so "hi tech", How quaint!...
3

Mobile Phones.

How many of you remember using a pay phone on the street?...
Could you go back to doing it for a week as part of a social experiment?...
4

Cats eyes.

No, not your household pet, The ones in the middle of the road!...
Them and Rumble strips are two of the greatest road safety aids ever...
5

Microwave ovens.

Tv dinners, reheats, quick defrost, that cup of coffee you left earlier!...
I could not manage without my MW, it really is my kitchen "right hand man"...
6

Air conditioning.

In the car on the hottest day of the year, or in the house on the same...
I have the car sorted, but when you have to get under a cold shower to be comfortable.....
7

Home cinema.

Ok, its not essential, but there are no "out of focus" moments, no "sticky floors", no mobiles going off, no popcorn munching idiots kicking your seat back...
As I say, not essential, but kinda relaxing in an "Id like to watch this film without distraction" sort of way!...
8

Duvet,s.

Making my bed as a kid...What a business, straighten the bottom sheet, then the pillows and the top sheet, tucking in as you go, then the blankets, all three of them, neat and tidy now!, and finally, the top cover!....
Now, just throw the duvet into position!, and for all that, its warmer than the old rig ever used to be!...
9

The Wheel.

Think about that one for just a moment...
No, REALLY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE!...
10

Everything else....

Halogen ovens, freezers, the electric light bulb, tarmacadam, the electric motor, the internal combustion engine, (deisel and petrol), radio, (tv if your into it!), the "biro", the "hoover", the washing machine, the la'clanche cell (humble dry battery to you and me!), Plastics (yes, another "think about that one" moment), speed cameras....Ok, only kiddin!....
Sure, there are dozens, even hundreds ive missed out, cos im lazy!...
Have your say, agree or disagree...

What are the things that you feel are on your "cant do without list"?...
Remember, there inventions, not discoveries!...
