I've noticed that now that I don't have Lynden or Jim around, I am using 
braille more, especially to label things.  I have used my braille rolladex a 
lot, too.  Sure, I have the same info on my computer but it isn't always on, 
it isn't portable, and it is easier to use braille when I am reading a phone 
number or other things back to someone.  Thank goodness for Louis Braille!
