Our World Has Become To Techie

I wish there was a way I could box up Rick with Rick & Paulette’s Travels and ship him to us here in Texas. I would have him set by my computer and teach me all he knows. I really enjoy reading his tech tips on his blog. They have taught Sandy and I a lot but there are so many techie things now that its difficult for an old person like myself to keep up with it.  I’m sure Paulette would mind though as I’m a slow learner. So, I guess I’ll just set and wait to read more of his blogs (which I do anyway regardless whether he has written about tech things or just telling us about his beautiful part of the world).

For example before Sandy got her Iphone she rarely would set down at my computer and now she's really got into this tech world and thoroughly enjoys it. She is learning more than I and that makes me proud of her. She is also showing some interest in the Ipad. Does anyone out there have one. What do you think about it?

However, we just may have to many techie devices as when she does something on her Iphone 3GS it effects my 3G Iphone which use to be hers. We both have the same updates and email address. So, when I delete and email on my phone it does hers too. She doesn’t like that as they are things like Kraft Foods, The Food Channel, William Sonoma and so on. So, until we can change one of our email address’s I won’t delete any and allow her to do that.

The following i received in an email:

A rare sight!!
Yosemite National Park, California , USA
This park was gazette as a national park in 1890. It is world famous for its rugged terrain, waterfall and century-old pine trees. It covers 1200 sq km and the "fire" waterfall of El Capitan is one of the most spectacular of all scenery.
The spectacular view of the waterfall is created by the reflection of sunlight hitting the falling water at a specific angle. This rare sight can only be seen at  a 2-week period towards the end of February. To photograph this rare event, photographers would often have to wait and endure years of patience in order to capture them. The reason is because its appearance depend on a few natural phenomenon's occurring at the same time and luck.

  1. I love my Ipad but it's not a laptop. I have a bluetooth keyboard which makes it nice if I want to type more than a few words. The good is that email and surfing works great and that is what I got it for. If you like an Iphone to surf or check email then you will love the Ipad. We have a macbook so the iphone and ipad works seamlessly together through Itunes. I recommend that you go to an apple store and play on one. You will really like it. I have never tried to combine two Iphones on one computer so I cannot help you on that one. You can have as many email address checked on your Ipad. We have two email address and both work well on the Ipad.

  2. Here, here!! I do so understand and agree with what you said about all this boggles my mind. I also believe some people just have a "mind" for it. Good for Sandy!! I'm learning and whenever I have the patience I don't do too bad.
    The pictures of the waterfall at El Capitan are awesome! It would be fantastic to be there and witness this phenomenon!! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Hi Weldon, thanks for the shout-out in your blog. It does seem some days techie stuff is starting to overwhelm all of us. As the old saying goes "only bite off what you can chew" and that especially applies to technology. There will always be new stuff to learn, it's not going away.

    Fantastic photos of Yosemite Park!

  4. As a fellow Texan (Austin) I will do what I can to help get Rick to Texas. Like you I would love to be able to sit down and absorb all that I could of his techie knowledge.

  5. We agree with Rick. We have "bit off" as much as we can chew, so we aren't getting any new "i" stuff. Have fun with whatever you do, 'cause if you aren't having fun, you aren't doing the right things!
