I was happy to spend some of Christmas with my grandparents. They move stiffly these days, wisely searching for help before they walk or wheelchair across the room. Hovering near 90, they both tire from much exertion. Yet, they still talk, often telling stories that I have heard numerous times. Occasionally, almost as if to […]

Twitter Tag

In a previous post, Twitter was one of the things I didn’t get. Yesterday, I spent some time with Twitter and although we’re not great friends, I’d say we’re now acquaintances. I’m not yet the fan that Dave is, but I will say that playing with Twitter was fun. What is Twitter? My take on […]
