Today was one of those days when I would happily have tossed the computer out the window as it seemed to be on a go-slow. It dawned on me, then, that it was ailing so I spent hours backing stuff up and trying to ease the poor machine’s burden.
All seems seems well with it now but I’m writing this on hubby’s phone just to give the desktop a night off.
Little did any of us think, as kids, that it would be possible to communicate with the world on tiny little machines that don’t even seem to be connected to anything.
Back in the day when my father was a kid in the 1920s and 30s, the town would gather around their house on Summer Sundays to listen to football and hurling matches on his father’s big radio which boomed through the open windows.
So, we should never, ever take computers for granted. They are an amazing invention.
And, as I bid you goodnight, I hope you like this quote from Norman Peale that took my fancy:
‘Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.’
