It is a chilly start to a Saturday morning.  The perfect weather of the past few weeks has been replaced by - well, fall. I can hear a cold wind rattling the eves. OK, I am not even sure what that means in this modern age.  The wind is blowing hard this morning.

I updated my trusty iPhone to the new OS yesterday.  I did not turn on the "cloud".  I dig gadgets. My first cell phone was a full-sized phone in a bag. I had a Palm Pilot (TM) back in the day and and bought the succeeding new models up through the TREO.  This is my second or third iPhone. I have a Kindle and an iPad. I bought and installed a wireless printer for my office yesterday!  But the idea of my backup being stored out there in the ethernet...well, the concept does not give me the warm and fuzzy. If I lost the data on my phone, I would be sunk.

Like most old dogs, it is not the idea of learning a new trick, it is understanding why I need to learn it.I will adapt to change, it just may take me a bit of time.

This morning I will be updating the wife's phone and iPad while I peruse the interwebz. Have a safe and wonderful Saturday.

MEANWHILE, IT'S COMFORTING That, As The Country Sinks in red ink & the world economy collapses, the Bougoise Left have their priorities straight *ahem*:
Or not.

Good grief. My cell phone makes and receives phone calls. I had texting blocked. No camera. I got a newer phone a couple of months ago. Sleeker and prettier. The newest thingy on it is the option to pick pretty wallpaper(?)for the screen.
I will probably die a dinosaur.
