First I wondered how I managed without a phone then the last two weeks I've panicked about not having internet access. Never take anything for granted and I still use snail mail for thank-you notes.

i think it's called "trust" JT, the internet is throwaway, KFC, Big Mac plastic shit. Handwritten, on paper, will always be be valued, kept in the heart - handed down for generations to come.

it`s called patience. we are so conditined to impatience now that we can do it in three minutes with a microwave oven. after only a minute sitting in front of the thing you can get so worked up that you will unplug the thing and go hungry. isn`t technology wonderful?
