That's a thing of the past, isn't it.  Now, everything you plug in shows the time.

Being able to call for the time after a power outage was helpful. I remember the number being busy too and having to call it back. Now all I have to do is ask Siri.

It's been ages!

Here it was WE 7-1212, and time was TI 6-1212.

Oh yes, I used to call that number. But before that, when I was a kid, you could call the operator and ask her what time it was.

 

Nowadays I have a weather station that controls greenhouse vents and reports back to me. I also track weather via apps.

Do you remember dialing the number for the time?  1212?

or for the temperature?

 

Do you know there are still phone numbers out there for these services.
