The Evolution of Technology – That Was Then!

Dinosaur!

Remember the day when we relied heavily on facimiles, copy machines, carbon paper, postage stamps, typewriters, newspapers and paper maps!  I think back to those time, and I shake my head!  Unbelievable.  We were the modern day Flintstones living in the stone age in comparison to the conveniences of today.

Now with iPhone, iPads, emails, text messaging, PC’s, digital advertising and navigation (GPS) systems, I cringe at the thought of having to change a ribbon in a typewriter!  Seriously?  Not even!  The only use I would have for a typewriter would be as a decorative piece used for starting “remember when” conversations, along with the house phone. 

When I took on the role of Technology Specialist for Lexus of Richmond, my Director of Fixed Operations shared this Lexus video with me.  Hilarious!  Made me feel a little nostalgic.  Watch this video with me as we travel down memory lane!

Lexus of Richmond “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting March for Babies

Thank you to everyone who came out to our “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting the March for Babies on Saturday!  The fundraiser was a HUGE success–we were able to raise an additional $3,700 towards our Lexus of Richmond team goal!  Click here for more photos.  Lexus of Richmond employees pulled together as a team and donated lots of gently-used items for the sale–everything from furniture and TV’s, to new and used baby items, clothes and more!  We also had a bake sale and car wash to add to the festivities.  We look forward to walking together as Team Lexus of Richmond on Sunday, May 15th in Monroe Park!  Look for our final donation annoucement (we’re still collecting here!) and pictures of the walk next week!  For more information about the Richmond, VA March for Babies walk, click here
