I think this is my 600th post on this blog! When I started it I never thought i'd stick at it so long or that I'd meet so many interesting people through blogging!
The photo is one of my favourites, taken in New York. Not hard to guess where!
Technology can be a double-edged sword. I commented yesterday how I rather enjoyed 2 weeks without the internet. I got to read more and we all talked to each other a whole lot more! I recently read an article about how young children are suffering because of their parents addiction to Blackberries etc and how they are losing out as regards attention from their mums and dads. I thought this was very sad but also wondered how many parents of older kids get very frustrated by THEIR absolute necessity to be constantly texting or playing on hand-held computer games as well as being plugged into their mp3s. Parents get ignored too!
I'd be very wary of getting a phone with internet access as I think I'd find it far too addictive!
I have mixed feelings about mobile phones. Why do so many people insist on carrying on "text conversations" in social situations ? It drives me mad when you're trying to talk to someone and you have to keep stopping while they read their text and then reply. And this goes on and on...it's like there's an extra person there that I can't see or hear! I also hate it at work when I have to serve someone and they are talking on the phone and don't even acknowledge my existence...and as for those dozens of people I see using a phone while they are driving....!!!
I love blogging and quite like Facebook but Twitter is not for me.
