  1. That’s pretty interesting. Apparently God gave all of his creatures the ability to enjoy recreation.

    1. It’s a near necessity, in my life. I just got a new one and I’m in the process of “moving” int it. A major pain in the neck.

  2. New computers, I phones, all that stuff just get on my nerves. Just when I think I have it figures out, NOPE,
    everything goes blooey again. The cat has the right idea here- let the fish do it. Wish I had a fish.

    1. It’s a real dilemma. What I am seeing in the tech world is that it’s almost impossible for one person to have knowledge of the entire system and so, when one calls a vendor to resolve a problem, you end up shuttled from person to person, because each person has only a very narrow slice of the pie, so to speak. The stock answer is to direct people to a web site, but that doesn’t always work.

    2. When I was a boy there was nothing in our house that my father couldn’t understand, explain, or repair. That included TV sets, radios, the family car, and the refrigerator.

      I wonder if this has gone extinct.

    3. I’ve always been self-sufficient when it came to technical matters, but these days, most products have a degree of computerization and the consumer is pretty much locked out. In one sense, it’s a good thing, because it gives us some amazing products at relatively low prices, but it sure takes these products into a different realm, with regard to repairs, etc. I have several guitar amps, and am proud to say that these are all tube amps with noting that couldn’t have existed 60 years ago.
