    You gotta Laugh

    Phone maker LG have released their new phone aimed at photographers. But what makes it laughable is that they are describing it as having a "Coutured leather finish"

    Remember when we used to judge a phone based on sound quality and reception?

    You can still do it. Leave it... really, it's hard the first time but it gets easier. Just every now and then to remind yourself who is in charge. I spent a few days on the road recently, meaing back roads and coast line, etc. After the first day I didn't even *care* when I had no signal!! Imagine that!! By the second day, I didn't even *check* if I had a signal.... And life went on. No one died because I was unavailable, no spaceships invaded earth, emails and messages *could* wait.....

    Right, just ditch the thing. 10 days ago I decided that technology and other useless things had to go. They've been screwing up my life and using up my time. Diverting me from what I really want to do. So gone are the cell phone, news (online, and the reading of all printed newspapers), wristwatch, fast food restaurants, the TV is off except for the occasional music video, etc. The internet is now only for this forum, selling the last of my gear on fleabay and here, and for research, not articles and such. Deleted my accounts in the three other online forums that I was a member of too.

    You would not believe what a difference it has made. I have so much more energy, my thoughts are clearer, things are getting done. Should have done this ages ago. We only have X amount of energy and time each day of our lives. Time spent at one thing takes time and energy from some place else.

    Right, right....I realize I can leave my phone at home but I was referring to the entire culture and environment of everyone, not just me. Believe me, I love it when I go to the Eastern Sierras and lose all cell coverage!

    And how we hated when we made a friend and they had a lot of 9' or 0's in their number! Dialing those numbers took forever!!

    Well done! I've been limiting my on-line time, and I'm getting a lot more done.
