Technology is a broad concept dealing with our knowledge and use of tools and crafts to adapt to and control our environment. Today it is hard to keep up with all the new technology available to us. As a “baby boomer” I find myself behind the times. My children, and in some instances my grandchildren, know more than I do about computer and internet technology. I have decided to explore the world that is available to us through use of the internet and our computers. It is my hope to share what I find.
Recent technological developments, including the printing press, telephone, and internet allow us to interact on a global scale. One way to do this is through Weblogs, better known as “blogs”. Most of my friends don’t know abouts blogs and neither did I until recently. Now I have created my own blog and am posting regularly to it. I am also reading other blogs and enjoying a new avenue of knowledge and companionship. Imagine my surprise to discover that not only can blogging be educational and entertaining, but it can be used to create income.
My husband works offshore and watches what everyone else wishes to watch on TV. He now watches what he wants on his computer. I found that if you have internet access at home, in a motel room, or even internet satellite service on your RV you can enjoy unlimited programming anywhere. We travel regularly and have found limited TV programming in motel rooms. We won’t have to miss our regular program any more.

You can find almost anything you want on the internet. You can shop from the comfort of your home and have your products delivered to you front door. My 75 year old mother was remodeling a small house and we needed handicapped accessories. No problem, I found her many items to choose from. My daughters find it much easier and less hectic to Christmas shop on line.
