The ancient but still functioning abacus is still used today in some societies. However,  it is not what you would likely see in your CPA’s office or at the local market, but here you have it,  the abacus.  If anyone knows how to use one, please feel free to post on the blog.   I vaguely remember using one in grammar school, so obviously, I was not very good at it.
