I found this keyboard under my grandpa's bed, it is so heavy and the funny thing is it doesn't have any connector port! Not even a PS/2 type of connector..so i can say it is wireless. The best thing there are no Ctrl+Alt+Delete buttons...how amazing! Right now i'm trying to find the old cpu together with the monitor...my mom told me i should be able to find it under the basement.

A while back I bought and old trunk at an auction. Little did I know that there was still stuff inside it. They had trouble opening it, so when I bought it, the lid was tuck shut. After taking it to a few places and when we got the lid open I found a bunch of old legal books and not from a lawyer. I sold the legal books, didn't have much interest, but I loved the handwriting on the note pads, so elegant. There is an up close detail in the step by step of the handwriting (5 years and 2157 days ago)

I got this camera when I was in my early teens, I have taken many great photos with it. It hasn't been used for years, but I'm still very fond of it. (5 years and 2159 days ago)
