the computer had swallowed them up whole, well they will come up for air when the service goes off…


     Where have all your friends gone???  Hey, you know where they are, if you are on Facebook,  and get to read the posts of the latest achievements in virtual world.  Hey, I’m not knocking it as I’ve said before I wouldn’t mind living on the farm that I have created on the computer.  It’s an awesome thing the wonderful people who I have met from around the world.  There seems to be an avenue for each bent of mind,  you can be destructive or you can grow things and create environments, you can play shopping etc….  There’s enough to interest most anybody.  I’ve watched this normally pristine house go to heck in a handbasket, but,  you know what, as long as he is happy, and having fun.  It’s looks like the wars were fought, here on sight.  I know that I have heard the play by-play description of these battles.

     Is our society truly headed toward what the sci-fi books foretold, a people attached to  machines,  everywhere I look when I wait tables, folks are on their phones online, or on their laptops.  I remember telling my first husband many years ago, that it was coming a time when you couldn’t tell a fib, because it could be checked and we are truly there.  Most everywhere you go in public you must have the expectation of being on camera, our locations are tracked, via our cell phone transmissions.  Big brother is certainly alive and well.  Oh well that is just the way it is I’m not here to even try and protest.  You just know you better act right.  Or as right as I can ever be…lol…                                                  

  All, I know so far,  is that since the t.v. has been silenced, and each of the minds in this house  is so much more active and sharp.  The constant bombardment of commercialism is a click away from being gone, when it pops up.  There is a contentment here that I haven’t felt since the last time the t.v. went silent.  I really don’t want it back..  And, you know if I really want to watch television it is just a click away on this machine.
