A rememorance

I have been sitting here looking at my cell phone, the remote controllers, computers, video cameras, CDs, and plastic bottles.  I began to think that all of this came about after we began to travel to the moon.  The more active our space involvement was the more lazy our free time became.  When I say lazy, it is not meant to relate in any way to being busy or work productivity.  It is just we no longer have to get up and change channels, we can sit and turn-on our electronic devices.  A CD can play many songs before it will either rerun or changed.

I remember my first computer the Commodore with not even a G byte of memory.  Heck today we have cars and trucks driving themselves.  We fight battles with drones, remote control aircraft controlled by far away control centers.  I am sure so much that we do not even know nor do I really want to know.  Having worked with classified information I understand its relevance and I respect the precautions to guard it.  So much in a life time.  I can not imagine the next 100 years.

I do know that some people have implanted chips in their bodies.  It is no longer finger prints and DNA.  But it is all working together to ensure that identities are a fact not a fiction.  So much to learn and time is running out.

Ants

Small Ants
There over 12,000 different kind of ants around the world.  Each ant can carry 20 times its weight in food or whatever.  They are work horses.  They can be fun to watch, just do not get them mad at you because you will not forget their bite.
I once sit back accidentally onto a fire ant nest.  It did not take long until blisters, pain, and awareness that I had set at the wrong table.

Bee

    The Bee is feared by so many, some people I understand are allergic to their stings, but I have never watch or had a bee attack me directly.  When they are provoked, yes, they as I would make it known that I did not appreciate the provokeness.  A few years ago I would go onto my balcony and sleep some during the day.  I had a lot of bees around.  At the same time, I was never bothered by the bee as I was the fly, or mosquitoes.  I will say this for the bee, when they work they do a great job making honey.

Phone of yesteryear

  1. I do have one of the first cell phones to come into operation.  It was from Sprint.  I also have two of the old bag phones, I really liked them, however, they were analog and of course can not be used today.  I recall as a child we had one of the phones in out house like the one above.  You would crank, say hello Mabel, could you please dial Henry at the Davis store?  She would patch you to them and the conversation would begin.  It line would most likely be a party line, two or more people with the same line.  One thing for sure we had not driving and phoning at the same time. Less wrecks, but also fewer vehicles on the road.
    I bring this up because this morning I witnessed a rear-end collision because of a cell phone in use.  No one was hurt, well maybe the lady that hit the pick up in front of her may be sore in the next few days.
    Responsibility carries a heavy load.  Safety is common sense.
