Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

I have a love/hate relationship with my computer. For the second day in a row it has decided it doesn't like what I'm trying to email so it has shut down without warning. Email lost. These were some that I was trying to forward. Even checking to see if they were in the recently deleted file....nope....lost.....gone forever. Sigh. Remember when there were no computers? One actually took pen to paper to write a friend or loved one. I still prefer to get a letter in the mail rather that an email or ecard. Every once in a while I'll send a friend a card to let her know I'm thinking of her. Much better than an ecard and what a pleasure to get something in the mail other than junk and bills!
I do most of my computer stuff in the morning while eating breakfast and enjoying my coffee. There's too much to do during the day to use the time in the ether world. Some days I don't get on the computer at all. I wonder what would happen if all the satellites suddenly quit working? I remember one day at Sears when I tried to make a purchase and they couldn't run it because their electronic registers were down and they didn't have a hand operated register. Hopefully it never happens, but it could, and then where would the commercial world be. I'd be willing to bet that none of them have given thought to manual backup. And all that information lost!
I am grateful to be able to look up all kinds of stuff that I might not otherwise have access to if it weren't for the internet. And being able to order stuff online is totally awesome.
So I guess we'd better take advantage of the technology while we can.
Have a fantabulous day.

I would be lost for a bit if I didn't have my 'puter! That's how I keep up with all my friends, ya know?

The witten word has slowly seemed to be making a comeback as of late! Let's all get out our pen and pare and practice...a LOT!

Ya know....if I had your address I might just put pen to paper and surprise you.
