When was the last time you tryed to thread a needle?
Over 40...forget it,
Or tried to spell, for that matter.
There are needle threaders, but my reading glasses help me see well enough to take care of it.
49 here, did it two weeks ago to sew a button on a shirt. My mid-range vision has gone to hell, though.
Needle threaders are so much easier to work with OP go get yourself one, they sell them at any fabric store or maybe even K-Mart.
What the hell happened to my vision?
I had to buy the 1.00 vision glasses you get at the local drug store.
I have been warned about greying hair and PUBS, but damn, I didn't know reading medicine bottles becomes impossible. I just take 2. I just figured the people I saw had really bad eyesight.
what else can I expect, my elder Dataloungers?
Please be gentle.
I can barely thread a needle anymore.
One that nobody ever warned me about: back flab! And I was never fat. I loved my muscular, lean back and all of a sudden, there was flab hanging down! awful.
Yeah, I stopped reading books for a few years.
Never needed glasses until my 40s. No sometimes I catch myself dreaming through my presbiotic corrective lenses
hugs r8 and r9, sounds like we are riding the same journey together.

Last week, and I just spotted a rip on my slippers that needs work.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
