While I do use technology - I avoid it at the same time - I still like the calculator I was born with, I still like to remember phone numbers, I combine thoughts to form new thoughts - etc. Now I do use Google a lot - to pick up new knowledge -
That would be the TI -30..solar, but I still have my old one with the red light up display,
I like to remember to enter phone numbers into my addie book on this box and on my cell.
I have Tres do that for me, gosh darned new fangled smart phones...
I must have cold fingers or something 'cause that touch screen can't feel a thing.
What is the old saying - We should learn at least one new thing every day - that is what Google is good for - today I might study the Environmental/Geographic impacts of fracking or the best Pecan Pie recipes (Google is great for finding new recipes to try for all foods - not just pie).
Gopher the Pecan Pie recipes. Gub'min's gonna frack us up no matter what
Even in retirement I still build spreadsheets and databases to analyze or save things I learn - It is what we are made for - use it or lose it. I still need a whole another life time to learn all of what I want to learn.
You have a choice. Old folks on the Beach here go sit on their rockers and wait for death.
I'd rather get up off my derriere and go chase death around the block a few times.
Death is funny and a scary cat. Keeps tripping on his long black robe and falling on his bony face.
I've given up on chasing death, it's no longer as phun as it was when I was younger.
Besides, death is so scared of me it ain't funny any more.
I'm told by the BIG MAN upstairs that when my turn finally rolls around
He's gonna send some cute angels for me
'cause death is so afraid of me.
Me and The Lord had a couple of big laughs about that.
Seems ya can't get good help no place no more.
Regods<------------Yea, I can spell
PS. try to learn at least two things per day.
