Technology is a Wonderful Thing

Technology is great. I use it every day! I feel like I am missing my right hand if I don’t have my cell phone with me. I can’t remember the last time I bought a cd, I only download them now.

Our entire company runs on the latest technology. The latest piece of equipment we purchased only runs with a computer attached…and that very same piece of equipment is also connected to the internet, so the maker of the software can make updates and work out the bugs while it is running in our facility – all of this technology and troubleshooting done remotely somewhere online!

We have become dependent on technology…If our computer system goes down; we are all standing around, completely lost – just  wondering what we should be doing with our time.

There is alot to be said about technology, but I don’t forget my roots. There is nothing better than picking up a book, and reading it…yes, actually turning the pages and reading a book - If not to myself, then to my children. And why is it when I start to write, I pick up a pen and paper. There is just something comfortable to me about writing with a pen on soft paper. Hard to describe, yes, but totally irreplaceable.
