Ahhh technology and the cool things I can do!
Take for instance, this post!
Today I am on the road, yet my blog is coming out like clockwork because of technology!
It allows me the luxury of allowing my thoughts to be delivered daily, as planned, while I am not tied to a chair in front of the computer.
I write it, click when I want it to come out and voila! Instant readiness to post at a certain time!
Sure it’s simple, however this wasn’t available when I was a teenager!
Heck I remember when microwave ovens came out!
Something that could heat up food, with a little “cooking” too, in a shorter time than it took to pop a Hungry Jack TV dinner in the oven! I mean That was COOL!
Then there were the Walkman… my generation’s iPod! Sure you had to carry tapes and all but I mean we now had mobile music and large headphone!
But we still had to go into a home, business or find an outside pay phone to call our family and friends!
I remember I coveted a typewriter forever!
I always wrote, of course I was going to write a great novel! I did pen many “books” that are in boxes somewhere hand-written! And yes, I am searching for those in my house!
Now we not only have personal computers and iPads and tablets, but we have computers on our phones!
I can check emails, my blog, job posts, search the Internet and make calls from this handheld device!
Of course there is the added bonus of maps, games, and all kinds of apps too numerous to list!
I can set myself reminders, make a virtual note to myself and do so many things that seem way cooler than the “space age cartoon” of “The Jetsons”!
I mean I am ok not having a flying car at this point. I haven’t yet mastered the smarter-than-me phone!
So while this gal is trucking north with my loves, my post is coming out to you from my thoughts on Tuesday and thinking how awesome it will be to read this while I am in my smarter than me van!
Have a fabulous Thursday my Graceless Friends!
