Greetings to all. I know I have been spotty in my appearances here lately. I have had to travel for work four of the last five weeks. Even worse than not visiting my friends on the internet is missing my beloved little Matthew and my wife. This past trip was for the entire week, which really puts a strain on my wife. Whatís strange is that for the past couple of years, I havenít had to travel much. I think the year before was four trips the entire year, and here Iíve done that many in a little over a month. Itís just a strange confluence of several different things coming together. Iím certainly not looking to travel. And unfortunately itís not over yet. I have another planned for a couple of days next week, on Valentineís Day no less. I know, I know, Iím in the doghouseÖlol.
Funny thing occurred on the plane going out on this trip. I was sitting on the window seat, a business woman in the middle seat, and a gentleman on the aisle. The two of them had Ipads and they were comparing and then they started taking out their laptops and compared those. I was just reading, but it struck me funny how they were gadget obsessed. And then when the plane landed, the business woman took out her blackberry and started scrolling through her emails, and then took out her iphone and started looking things up. What the heck is all that about? Isnít one enough but four devices?
So on my mid week flight (this week was multiple cities) as Iím carrying my briefcase I started asking myself why my briefcase was so darn heavy. Oh, I realized, as Iím scrolling through the emails on my blackberry, it must be my laptop with the Kindle thatís in there and the ipod as well.
Where the heck is this all taking us?
