In the older days due to the lack of cash we all had to learn new skills by doing things ourselves that should have been done by tradesmen.
Like it says jack of all trades master of none.
I can still get by doing electrical work or plumbing in the house but I would say the biggest thing that has changed is cars.
Old days you tried to repair your own car as it was cheaper than putting it into a Garage.
Nowadays I just lift the bonnet then shut it again not got a clue as to where things go now.
I would say most of us oldies can do a little bit of this and a little bit of that but not sure if the young ones nowadays can do the same.
Nice first post leoaubrie. Not unless you are one of our older members who has come back with a new username.
