Hooray!

As a means of showing our appreciation, you may choose from an assortment of prizes:

1) Early Bird Special for Two at "Soft Foods R Us".
or
2) One (1) whole uninterrupted hour of explaining aches, pains, and "funny feelings" to the next person that crosses your path.
or
3) An entire afternoon telling a room full of forcibly-prevented-from-eye-rolling 16 year olds how lucky they are.

Let us know your selection...but Please Speak up.

Our hearing isn't what it once was!

Francesca

I believe Alan is right, apples to oranges. And oh boy, rose-colored glasses really help! I love technology and feel my world has expanded exponentally. Knowledge abounds at my fingertips and at the speed of light (or as fast as I can type!) I no longer have to wait for someone to tell me the answer, I can quickly find answers myself, even for questions I didn't know I had. That's liberating and empowering. I believe technology and particularly the internet have leveled the playing field between the haves and the have-nots when it comes to education, knowledge and dreams. I think people get annoyed with technology... when they don't use it or understand it. The best part, is you can simply turn "it" off! I could go on and on, but don't want to bore y'all!

Mom and I look forward to travelling, as we have our Scrabble game in the trailer. It was given to us by another couple at a campground in the foothills of the Rockies in 1998. They were going to sell their trailer when they got home and thought they would like us to have it. Our boys grew up equating Scrabble with rainy or cool evenings in the trailer also. As we upgraded over the years, We have placed little importance on TV and computers, and have anticipated the conversation and friendly competition this Scrabble game has given us. Nice evenings are spent by the campfire, and cool or damp ones around the table playing Scrabble. Now both boys have their own travel trailers, and neither one has a TV in it!

We, too, travel WITHOUT at TV. Nothing like an evening playing Yahtzee or Phase 10 or dominoes or whatever at a picnic table by lamplight. It just feels RIGHT. As far as being "out of touch" - THAT's the POINT!! Bad news, really bad news, WILL find you. We generally check our computer for e-mail every day or two, and if it is NATIONAL bad news, the locals will tell us. Otherwise, we are on VACATION.

Now I enjoy some technology with me when I go camping. If cellular reception is good, I can stream pandora radio when I take a nap in the afternoon (to prepare myself for late night drinking lol... I cant seem to sleep in...) I usually bring my kindle with me because I enjoy some quiet times to read. TV...no way! I gave mine up when I moved on my boat. Now that Im in a rowhome/townhouse Im thinkin of getting one because I have netflix on demand through the internet to watch movies on... bigger screen then my laptop... if I have company over it would be handy.

Been thinking on it more... re-reading the thread, the tough part seems to be the tendency for "younger folk" to gadget up - phone, music, games, whatever, and not ENGAGE in REAL life. We took our 11 year old g/son with us this past summer. He, too, gets into electronic-land. We just called him on it... "OK (kid), time to put that away and talk to us (or play a game)" Didn't ASK, didn't make a big deal, just that it is time... It DOES drive Michele and me NUTS when our kids come over and sit and text all the time. We are "that close" to putting a "cell phone basket" by the front door... kinda like check your pistols in the old west... lol
