Bigger than sliced bread

My professor today was talking about her mother-in-law who just passed away. She shared that when they moved to Israel in 1977 they were told there would be an 11-year wait to get a phone. It turned out to be only 7.

People my age and older, remember what Israel was like? Can you believe how far it's come so fast? It's amazing.

I remember going to an old bus with my grandfather to hand crank a phone in the 80s. There was nothing else.

My grandmother remembers when they installed a pulley on the well in her neighborhood in Jerusalem and they didn't have to pull it up hand over hand. That was bigger than sliced bread, she says, and I believe it.

It's come so far and so fast. That's your positive thought of the day. Enjoy it.
