A Blast of a Weekend

25 05 2012

 

 

I had a fantastic weekend last week. My Great-Nephew, Jack was here and was tons of fun. He’s going to be 4 in August and is already a little geek. He can zip through his mother’s iPhone like it’s an extension of himself. He actually knows how to use it better than she does! His favorite is “Angry Birds” and the boy is GOOD. He has 3-starred more levels than I have.

At one point I was showing him a video on the computer and when it ended he wanted to watch it again so he reached up and touched the screen trying to make it replay. I told him that I didn’t have a touch screen and he would have to use the mouse and he looked at it (and me) like we were from another planet. With great disgust he used the mouse to replay the video.

I love this next generation!

 





Where do you live?

A question out there for fellow Techno-Geeks: Where do you live?

No, I don’t mean your address (I’m not some whacked out cyber-stalker) I mean your general geographic location. Now if you want to include you city, that’s great. I’m interested in the type of place you live, the geology, climate urban v/s rural…..that kind of thing.  Here is what I’m looking for, I’ll use myself as an example:

I live in a small rural town in extreme southern Illinois. The population of my town is roughly 8,000 (during the autumn festival and on Sundays during church). I’m about 1 1/2 hours from St. Louis, Missouri.

Here are a couple of photos of my local area:

I’ve actually been known to write from the hump of the camel above using my laptop and 3G.
