Theres a certain phone number that I've called since I was a kid, a number
that returns the time of day and weather info.

It used to be ran by SunTrust Bank but they are now Truist.  So I called
the number today to see if the service still worked...    yay, it did.
There was a blurb about how the service was now being ran by Peace
Communications

Cool :)    I'm glad the number still works.  It's like a longtime friend
:)    it's like 976-EVIL for nerds!

I sorta remember the service was originally ran by American National Bank
in the 80's?   If not ANB then who was it?    I think back then it only
returned time; weather info was added later.

I'm fairly certain the number you're referring to is 265-1411. Time & Temp since I was a kid. On Sat, Apr 9, 2022 at 3:15 AM Ed King wrote:
