Do you ever think life would be simpler if there wasn't that much technology? Where you actually had to think your way through a problem rather then go to a computer to have it analized or google an answer for things? I do a lot lately. Especially since the people next door who bought my fils land are Amish. I think technology has spoiled us from what used to be. They've built a school in my backyard almost and I find it very interesting to say the least. I think its fantastic because they've refused to "evolve technologically" as we have. They do all their work with big beautiful draft horses no worries about deisel mechanics just where their next feedings going to be really. Don't have to worry about people bothering you on the telephone really, no internet, back to the "basics of life" as 4 Him would sing in their song...yeah life might be a little tougher but that's our roots and where we were before all of this computer nonsense took over our very existance! We've truelly gotten lazy as a society. Its easier for technology to do the work for us rather then work at it with our own 2 hands. She's got 5 beautiful children to help her with things, I've got 3 boys and I'm pulling my hair out! I honestly don't know how they do it. Everything from growing their own food to baking the daily bread needed to survive. I don't think I could do it really, I could if I had to, but I've fallen victim of laziness I suppose along with the rest of society....words to think on really...I don't know how to make my own clothes, put up preserves for the long winter months, anything really in comparisons to what my neighbor does. Well just figured id let you stew on that one for a minute...lend me your ideas...id be interested in hearing them!
