I am really sorry I let this blog become almost dormant. When I was in Panama, I had a large readership and the subject I want to write about is something that my previous readers should pass on to their children and grandchildren.

I have always been interested in technology and it is easy to allow one’s life to be overrun by technology advances. There has to be a balance between benefit and danger. Driverless cars are coming. We depend on GPS. Systems can be hacked. And then there is radiation.

A good friend that read my previous post on my granddaughter wrote to me and asked if I had watched Generation Zapped. I hadn’t, but I have now. It is on Amazon Prime. It is a must watch. Had I watched it before I bought my current house, I would have had it hard wired so that I didn’t need WiFi.

Here is the trailer for Generation Zapped.

After watching it I watched this presentation.
I encourage you to watch the movie and the presentation.

Technology is good, but it may be the death of us.

Checking In

It has been a while since I posted anything. Retirement does not mean you have nothing to do. Lilliam and I are well and busy all waking hours of the day. She more than me.

I had the motivation to make a post today following my reading of my granddaughter lindsay’s blog post. My daughter, my grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were a prime motivation for Lilliam and me moving back to Texas.

I now have 8 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Of my 8 grandchildren, Lindsay had been given more than her share of challenges. Her first child, Nealon, was born prematurely and kept us all on the edge of our seats. Mason, Lindsay’s second son, has presented a second set of challenges, which her post provides a view of autism.

My reason for posting Lindsay’s blog is that she is an excellent writer and I felt her view of her experiences might help others in similar situations. I know my blog was always therapy for me and I am certain her’s will provide her therapy.

Check in on Lindsay’s blog and tell her her Grandpa sent you and he is very proud of her.
