Good advice Dan. I gave up my trade (Typography) in December after 50+years. What I was taught and also taught other is no longer valid with technology and buttons. No skills at all, today ads last seconds on a phone. My work lasted months if not years in print form in magazines or newspapers. When I open a paper from the 70s and one today, there is no comparison. We came from a different era. In my case, I’m in the works with a few others across Canada building a website and archiving those days and artefacts.
As for cars, looks like they are only made to last so long. No more driveway repairs I did. hard to find a dipstick today. Lol
