IM just saying...

It's a fact of life, if we don't learn how to keep up with technology it's going to leave us in the dust! For years I fought getting a computer, I couldn't imagine having time to set in front of it and pay bills or email. Our first computer was a HP, and dial up took about 5 minutes to log on. I was right, I didn't use it much.

When the girls were teenagers, Zack on Saved By the Bell carried a cell phone around all the time that looked like this! By 1990, cell phones were a necessity even for me. I felt safer having one in my purse and just like Ziploc bags...I had to admit it was better than the "old way" of doing things!

Facebook and MySpace let's me keep up with our kids and GRANDkids. Better than a letter or email it's instant gratification! I'm so glad I turned the computer on in 1990 and waited for it to load AOL. Technology takes us farther than we ever expected, the ability now to Twitter, IM or text.

IM just saying it's all good!


  1. Thougoh I have kind of fought it all the way I know it is the way everything is going so I'm trying to join in...still have nov done FB bac thinking about it more and more...

  2. ~and are blogging! connecting with a world of people you probably never would have met : ) technology is quite nice! warm wishes and brightest blessings~

  3. I teach computers to seniors...and others who are not familiar with technology so I see first hand the thrill of learning at any age.

  4. Can't do without technology. I got my first cellphone in 1992. I graduated to an iPhone in the fall. I love it. And what did I ever do without Facebook?

    My first internet account was with AOL when it was a DOS program. I think our modem speed was something like 1200 BAUD, whatever that means.

  5. Technology certainly has made our world a smaller one. I never thought I would see the day that I would be able to connect with so many lovely people around the country, and the world.
    I love my Iphone, MacBook Pro, etc. I am so glad my daughter introduced me to all these wonderful tools of communication. It beats the old pen pal days, so much faster.
