Is there an App for that?

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

So I'm still not feeling well. Still have the heat turned down, all the fans going, and wearing a tank top. So that got me thinking.......
while I do not own an i-phone or i-pad, I wonder if

Really? There's an app to make me feel better? I seriously doubt that!

Sorry, I simply couldn't resist that. Too many people are overly reliant on their "smart-phones" to the point of making them dumb. Or, I guess really I should say, making them forget manners, considerations, and even how to keep their eyes on the road.

For instance -----> The other day, I was heading back home from taking my Mother to the doctor. I passed a vehicle who was riding really close to my line. My Mother said, "he's holding an i-pad and driving!" I got slowed down and he passed me. Sure enough, he had his big stinkin' ipad smack in the middle of his steering wheel, and was either texting or emailing or who knows what but he was all over the road.

Now, I have no idea why this came to mind other than the fact that I'm still not feeling well and therefore cranky.

However, on a better note...I did start a new crochet project for the son of my previous boss. I used to babysit him. And now, he's getting married so I'm making them a couch throw using their favorite colors.

And just for a laugh...isn't this just too funny?

    Yesterday I gave up my smartphone service. I went and bought a flip phone circa 2005. Don't get me wrong, I actually need my smartphone..... sometimes. That is the keyword, SOMETIMES, not constantly attached to my hand. So to keep myself in check, I will have my smartphone with me so I can check a few things when I need to when I am around a wifi connection and all the other times (LIKE IN MY CAR), I got Flip (he has a name now).
    I came to the conclusion that not only is it financially draining, my smart phone is mentally draining. I feel like I am going crazy sometimes. I can't remember anything. I go to look something up and I have forgotten. I walk in another room to do something, forgot what I was doing. Turn around and lose something. I am only 32 and I think my smartphone is making me senile.

    That is one time I would have talked on my cell phone while driving, I would have been calling the police with the information and his license plate. People! Grrr!

    I do hope you feel better soon. I loved the little cartoon. :) Hugs!

    Hope you are back to normal soon. Yeah, I love my electronics, but refrain even talking on the phone when driving. It is incredible what they are capable of.

    Why in the world do people think they can do all sorts of things that take their eyes and mind away from the job at hand when they're driving !? The other day I saw a guy riding a bicycle (in the snow), smoking, and talking on a cell phone -- that was bad enough!

    Love the cartoon -- and that's why I grow my own lettuce!!
