Wouldn't bother unplugging.

And we all lived happily ever after...


Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

No, I will not unplug or spend less time on my computer today. I have no desire to spend less time on my computer.

I don't think that I would really be able to unplug, but I have cut down some on use. I've started doing some classes and playing pickleball, so I can't just sit on the computer as much as I was before.

I don't consider that I waste time in any mentioned. I am retired but have projects and goals that I accomplish and use computer as relaxing time, (could unplug) TV for news, (could unplug) and smart phone (could unplug but do have a regular evening message I'd have to miss with advance warning).

I have a basic smart phone and have it with me every day (and love it) - just in case...however, the usual time I use it is to text to my DD in Puerto Rico every evening - a brief daily event if any and good night. I easily could unplug, it but would have to let her know so not to worry...other than that I use it to find my DH while we are shopping in big box stores...very handy for that.

We have a land line where I receive my calls. Would not unplug that, but would let calls go to VM.

I already have cut back on daytime computer time, but I have a couple daily mails that people depend on hearing from me and I would not unplug them, - another is a online bridge game each evening for 1.5 hrs. It is good for me and I would not unplug. After that I try to work on genealogy but I'm so far behind that I could unplug.

As far as TV. I usually watch a 1 hr. daily news and tune in on the first segments of a few other news if I have time but, easily could unplug it.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I unplug for a few days several times a year. I can't do as often or regular as I use to. My new job is in the cloud. I refused a smart phone for many years, then I had a boss that went to clients places of business often and would text me she needed this that or the other thing. There was so often that a texting was hard on the "stupid" phones I ended up with a smart phone. I did get a low end smart phone. When I went in and the clerk was showing off all the beaches on the $$$$ phones, I told her I wasn't paying for a bunch of teachers I wouldn't use. She asked if I was over 55, yep, she then asked if I wanted a senior special. Cost a fraction of a real start phone and does everything I need.

I have cut down on the total time spent on the computer but don't plan to cut it out completely. I don't have a smartphone (I refuse to) so that isn't a problem.

unplug from the computer, the phone and TV? I could do it. I don't know if I will. It would depend on whether I have to research something for my ds's homeschooling, but it could be put off.
Can we unplug from the telephone too? LOL

Tomorrow, the second Friday In March is the National Day of Unplugging. What do you think of this idea? Would you participate?

A 24-hour global respite from technology, it highlights the value of disconnecting from digital devices to connect with ourselves, our loved ones and our communities in real time.
Join us from sundown on March 9th until sundown on March 10th.
