    This morning I’m making a French toast breakfast when I peer up towards the television and see a vision that nearly knocks me off my feet.  Normally, I don’t allow TV during the week.  We don’t even have cable. If my kids want to watch a movie now and again, I don’t mind as... read on

    This week I landed in T-mobile to get my phone fixed and a gentleman in his 60’s stood in line attempting to add text to his plan.  With fear and trepidation, he asked how much it would be to add the frightening new technology to his life.  He understood he needed to keep up with... read on
