When I was a child, we had our mail delivered by the postman on a push bike, milk and bread delivered on a horse and cart.
Now it is a postman on a motorcycle  and milk bread are not delivered anymore.

I don't think I'm old enough to remember a horse and cart delivery but mail is still delivered every day where I lived in the UK. Here in China we get mail delivered daily if not too big, otherwise we get a note saying we have mail to collect from the PO. Just about anything you desire can be delivered here for very little cost.

haha I have the same memories.The milkman delivered milk on his donkey.We were holding a small jug and he poured it out for us.He used to shout ringing the bell'milkman'
There was also a man who delivered ice for the refrigerator.My mother was so sad when one day he told her that nobody else needed ice anymore since nearly everybody had bought electric friedges.So my parents were obliged to buy an electric one even when they could not afford it.
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

Mail will always be delivered to the door  once each day now instead of twice.

Ice cream man in his van will be driving round in the summer months.

Jehovah witnesses still try thier luck about every 6 months

The scrap Iron vans drive round the streets all the time, it seems they can smell a pile of iron at 10 miles away.

Jehovah Witnesses, and 7th Day Adventists, have banned our house, I get them to question, then they leave, their religion.

I cant argue facts so just say 'not here' that's it.

I guess the big issue everyone knows is the blood transfusion lark
