Fortune Cookie Hall of Fame: A Phoneless Cord

The Phoneless Cord __________________ “For people who like peace and quiet: a phoneless cord.” I particularly like this fortune; although on the surface this little bit may seem humorous, there is also truth in it. There is something to be said for phonelessness, but yet maintaining a gentle and strong cord connecting us to the people we love. Too often, we are together in the same room but are still apart as we become engrossed in our cell phones, iPads, Kindles, computers, and other technology. We are bound to our technology, often slaves to it – – Guilty as charged. Perhaps we should spend more time together – I have found that playing board games is a great way to connect with those we love, as long as we do not take the game itself too seriously. Happy fortunes! __________________________ Learn Chinese: Summer – xià tiān Lucky numbers: 30, 19, 33, 48, 36, 46

On My Way to Scranton...

Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. --Mitchell Kapor I am on my way to Scranton (PA) for a meeting, so I have no real thoughts for today. My smart phone is really quite useless because the screen is too small for my old eyes, so I rarely surf on it. My next device will be an ipad. NOTE: I always post my away messages after I return; I would hate for my mailbox place to get robbed because I was away. LOL See you later!
