Today I thought I'd talk abour recording memories. As you know, I am a very keen scrapbooker and photographer. I also, in the past, used a video camera - a lot. Back in the late 80's and through the 90's video recording was such an important part of my memory keeping and then it just fizzled out. I think it fizzled out because of two things, one was that my children were young adults and just didn't want to be video'd any more and also that recording memories changed with the advent of smart phones. Once we had those we would do a flash recording lasting only a few seconds, up to a minute and then it would be saved on the phone. I have also made sure that these files are saved on my computer as I would hate to lose them.
However, all those memories, starting with our wedding in 1987, Ben being born in 1989, Penny in 1991 and their formative years are mostly on VHS and I cannot watch them. We did buy a VHS to DVD video/DVD player back in the early 2000's and I did transfer some video to DVD. However there is still this lot that needs sorting.
Have you got VHS tapes? Can you watch them or have you had them transferred? Do you do much video recording on your phone? I'd be interested to hear :)
