^^^ That was funny. One more reason to not have a face book account where others can post stuff on your page. I deleted my account a couple years ago -- it was a freeing experience. Wink

One of my customers asked me today if I have a Facebook page. I replied that no, you'll never see me on Facebook or any other social networking site. I'm a Luddite. It's bad enough I have email. If it were up to me, I wouldn't have electric lighting in my house; I'd live exclusivly with gaslight and kerosene. And I'm serious........... Alas, my wife doesn't agree.

Still, what electric lights I do have are almost 100 year-old bulbs. Again, I'm serious. They are easy to find so why use modern ones? Bulbs from 1905-1910 are ever more pleasing. And they last almost forever. I have one that's been burning for 30 years, every night.

And yes, I do have gas and kerosene lighting in my living room.

Facebook. Bah.

^^I agree. I'm a confirmed Luddite. I sit in front of a computer for work and protest constantly to friends that they never write. Instead of a nice hand-written letter I get an IM, "I'm writing to you now!" Mad

Meh. The art of hand-written correspondence will probably die with USPS. I am heartbroken.

As for Facebook, I reactivated my old account several days ago only to keep up with friends during the recent wildfires. Everyone but me has a 'smart phone' and an FB app. First email I received was from FaceBook, updating me on their privacy policies. As if they existed. UGH. Shocked

@TheFae:

Smartphone? Never. When my wife and daughter switched to Verizon to get crazy expensive smartphones I started looking at pay-as-you go cellphones, since I average 10 minutes or less a month. They had various bothersome issues so I went to Verizon and asked what it would cost to get on the family plan with just a basic phone. $10 a month. Okay, that's good, but I don't see any basic phones. Oh, they're in back. He brought one out. Simple flip phone, no bells or whistles. How much? Free. They can't even give them away. It's perfect. It makes and receives calls. That's all I need. And not often....

The State of Illinois has decided they are no longer going to teach cursive writing, just keyboarding, which begs the question of how those people then going to produce a signature on a paper document they have to sign. Make an "X"?

I agree on the cell phone discussion. Just give me a basic cell phone without any frills. Each month I check the minutes used on our family plan and the text message count and as it decreases I get with Verizon and decrease minutes/text message service. One person on our plan uses it as much as his heart beats!! (And they think women are on the phone all the time!!)

@Juan And I thought I got a basic phone from Verizon. Next time I will make them go to the back and look around. Two of us on our plan have the $10/mo plan. Mr. Talk-Alot has a $90+ plan!


Can you identify this?

I'm with the rest of you on cell phones.I own one.Have no clue what the number is,so I finally made a label and put it on the case.I doubt I make 5 calls on it all year.A friend had to show me how to respond to her text messages.Some of the guys here at work live on their phone,and cannot understand how I can use one so seldom.

The most outrageous use of cell phone for yakking and texting is those people using them whilst driving. I have been nearly hit many times by someone with their head down texting.

If they are texting or yakking on an interstate/freeway they drive slow and create havoc by slow driving and not paying attention to the road.

If I see a driver with their head down or leaning to one side, I would bet $100 they are texting or yakking -- or peering into their rear view mirror and applying makeup -- and no, the men are not scot free either for I have seen men shaving or brushing their teeth -- a one even trying to read a newspaper.

I may have mentioned this before, but a couple of years ago I was rear-ended while at a dead-stop at a crosswalk, by an aptly-named Dodge Ram pickup going 35. The driver never even touched her brakes, she plowed right through me. My car was totaled, I came close to being totaled myself. Official cause as listed on the police report, pinning 100% of the fault on her: "driver inattention, cell phone use." Evil or Very Mad For me, when I see people violating state laws against cell phone use in cars, I take it deeply personally.

My phone is incapable of sending or receiving texts. I had that feature blocked since the only texts I was receiving were spam, and I was being billed for them at 15 cents each. Mad

I text very little, and my texts usually come from Bella Goth reminding me to get butter or soda from the store.

I only have a cell phone because we don't have a regular phone line at home. Also I'm part of my sister-in-law's family plan or something like that. She takes care of our charges cause the charges we rack up are very little.

I just replaced my phone recently because of unfixable damage to my old phone, I replaced it with an older version of the same phone I had, bought on Ebay for $22.00

My first cell phone was one of those "bag" phones. It transmitted 5 watts of power and could punch out of most valleys. Nowadays cell phones transmit less than one watt. It really ate the battery though whilst transmitting and could be used as a defensive weapon, or a boat anchor. Shocked

I too prefer the simple phones. I don't want email chasing me around all of the time. I do text some, but it is usually an emoticon or a grunt. I can't understand the kids who are texting all of the time. For me it is rude and asocial.

We chose not to get land lines when we moved. Why have duplicates when I cringe every time one of the things rings?

I got a phone with large buttons instead of one of these mini phones.

Facebook is insane. People are posting their whole lives on there - noting each and every one of their moves as if everyone else cares what they had for lunch or that they're in line at the store. FourSquare (or whatever it's called) is frightening. I also have a problem with seeing that 137 people like someone's post about a death/sad story. It just seems very wrong.

That said: My daughter loves playing Pet Society on one of my fake Facebook accounts and I used to have a mild addiction to Mafia Wars. I've never used Facebook for much other than playing the games with my fake accounts.

I once went to dinner with some old friends, to meet up with a mutual friend with whom we'd been out of touch. She came with a friend she worked with. The conversation was enjoyable, until the food came out. Then both our out-of-touch friend, and her close friend, started taking pictures of each plate as they were put on the table, and immediately uploading them with comments, to Facebook in real time. I mean, seriously??? Who in hell cares? I was there and I didn't care. Why would any of their FB friends be interested in a breathless, real-time account of their meal in a perfectly ordinary, no-big-deal restaurant??

So, I had a tuna sandwich for lunch today. Anyone want pictures and a detailed update? Rolling Eyes Self-indulgence has reached wild new heights..............

@Juan

Where do you purchase old light bulbs? Seriously, I would love to buy some.

I have a gas fireplace in the living room, oil lamps and candles in every room of the house (including the bathroom), coffee percolator and gas stove The neighbors and co-workers made fun of me, until the power outage last winter and what happened? Every one of the neighbors ended up at my house keeping warm with my gas fireplace, eating dinner cooked on my gas stove and chatting with each over by lamp light. They all went home with fully bellies, candles and entertained.

Suddenly I wasn't the weird person with all this old fashioned stuff in my house, I was the smart person who could survive a sub zero day with food, entertainment and heat. Now they ask me where they can buy oil lamps, good candles and card games.

My vacation home has a 1970's wood stove heat as its only heat source (no furnace), its own well and pump and will soon have a hand pump for the well so won't need electric to bring up the water. The house also has a wash tub, wash board, drying rack, candles, cast iron pots/pans, percolators, oil lamps, board games, cards and books. Perfect for that "off the grid" get-a-way.
