    Thought some might be interested by this I know I am! I only wish I could read the print! [​IMG] I do see that the incubator Im getting was only $71.50 at that time which I *realise* was pricey back then, but I just find it comical, 71.50 then, and now it's hard to find them below $100 hehe! I've seen one as high as $850!

    I can't wait to get mine on saturday!!!!! [​IMG]

    There was a lady down the road from me who lived in a log cabin her parent's built right off the Oregon trail. She was in her 90's when I was about 7 years old (I'm 39 now). Anyway, never had electricity or running water in her house ever. Always talked about using the Sears catalog! LOL! She passed away at like 102 or something. Her log house is still there!
