So let me ask you (which is a safe bet on my part, because nine times out of ten, when I write that, no one replies) so let me ask you ……… “Do you send out the Christmas Cards first, or do you wait and see who sends you one, then reply?”
I am of the later. I get one, I answer one. What I get this year, doesn’t necessary preclude my list for the following year.
This year there is an added wrinkle to the 2008 Christmas Card issue. People are asking me “Why don’t you call anymore?” and then mysteriously adding their current area codes, numbers to the card. I suppose they are assuming I have lost their numbers?
Never did that before. I have stopped the telephone traffic because I am not all that convinced that cell phones do not give you brain tumors and I do not have a regular land line telephone. So therefore, I have cut the telephone traffic back to an absolute minimum. Now here is the rub. “Telephone lines run BOTH ways don’t they?”
Strange questions in the age of instant communication eh?
Twin Falls Idaho – Rep. Stephen Hartgen wants to clean up bombastic and rude comments on the Internet with a law requiring people to use real names when posting comments on blogs and news websites. Yeah, good luck on that one. Hartgen calls his plan “a modest proposal,” but some opponents say it would chill the spontaneous exchange of ideas on the Internet.
I love those spontaneous exchanges such as: “You Suck.” “Why don’t you shove this up …..” “If I lived close to you I would shove your head into a wastebasket and then …….” “So you do know how to use a spelling checker?” and my favorite absolute number one comment … “Mom, always liked you better!”
Oh well, you get the drift.
