My mom grew up with an outhouse and she doesn't miss it a bit. She and my dad used to go back and visit her folks and she said my dad used to pray for constipation.

These days it can be hard to tell where that sensor is broadcasting its information.

To do anything with it I need to have a Google account and I haven't made one yet on the phone because I find I don't need it. My phone rings, I answer, I hang it up when I'm done talking.

One of my friends tells me I could download apps for games to play waiting in doctors' offices and I told her, "I have books for that - and not Kindle ones, either."

I don't dislike technology. I love my computer and try to keep up on everything computer related, but I figure I don't have to have every new gadget out there.
I gave away my electric slicer, large bowl Robot Coupe processor, Food Saver, electric knife sharpener, and a few other electronic gadgets. Cooking for one, I no longer need them. Now I have so much more room in my kitchen.

I don't have to have the latest and greatest in electronics. I learned with a wooden spoon and a bowl. And if necessary, I can go back there.

My friend Lisa gave me a blender (or is it a food processor?) last Christmas and I have yet to use it. Although strawberry smoothies are on the horizon.
