It's not my fault!


I have now been sucked in by facebook too! I am totally blaming Miss V and Flori our officer in charge of coffee. Flori bribed V with some sort of nonsense totally unknown to me, and the next thing I know Miss V is on my laptop accepting things and making me a password. Then... Viola! I'm on Face book!

first it was blogging, now it's facebook. If you hear the word twitter ( or see it typed by me) please please please just SHOOT ME!!Honestly, all these things just suck you right in!
Computers and the Internet........... addicting! I remember our first computer. I was totally against spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on that thing. And of course in retrospect it was a big waste, anyone else remember MS DOS???? I hated that thing, I had to write down a list of how to get into any files, and then there was that pale green and white striped printer paper!!! ARRR of course, it was really pretty advanced compared to what we had at college in the 80's. My campus job was tour guide and I reveled (truly) in walking perspective students along the cat walk past our TWO story high computer which took up an entire building!! Gosh it was soooooooooooo impressive! Anyone else remember punch cards? that was another campus job. Not for non technical students like me though. So, yeah, I know how old I sound when I am agog (did you ever think I'd be able to work agog into a post?) at how times have changed so fast. okay, maybe 26 years isn't EXACTLY fast............. but in the greater picture of life, it's a blink.

Oh, the pictures? Aren't they pretty? Don't you love fall? Besides anyone who reads me, knows I really don't like to post without pictures. ;-)

First, don't worry about that crazy Twitter thing. I can't even figure out what you are supposed to do on it. I tried. I also don't understand a single thing that other people are tweeting (is that correct?). Sooooo.... all that being said, I couldn't be more pleased to have you on facebook! I am so glad you made that leap. ;) OK, so you may have been pushed a little, but either way, I am sure glad you are there now. It makes me smile.....

Oh, and that reminds me. I need to get an envelope in the mail to V. She's awaiting payment....

I remember MS DOS and punch cards! Believe it or not...we were even hooked up to Prodigy but I never really *learned* how to work the web :)

Yup, I remember all that stuff and more...LOL. Way back before the internet and an old Texas Instrument computer...Pac Man wars!
I was never a techie, not sure I could be.
I'm avoiding facebook, my space and Twitter. Blogger is enough for me! IF you need help, call me, I'll send coffee *VBS* Hugs, Finn

LOL - yeah DH spent hours and hours in the computer lab running his punch cards when he was working on his engineering degree!

We had one of those TI computers too... and our first real PC had a 20 megabyte hard disk... LOL gosh that seems so funny now! A handful of digital pictures would eat that up quick.

I use to know all that DOS stuff - sure glad we don't have to go there anymore... Technology sure is amazing!
