Vintage Zappa! NICE!!!"And for a nominal fee he said he could take me to nirvana" My still fave Zappa album is "FREAK OUT"; Susy creamchese, brain police, wowiezowie,etc...

I am not joking Ernie, you are a computer genius compared to me! Yes reading, art and languages keeps ones mind crisp and free from senility!!! You will never e a senile wreck and will be doing Mirz, mail-art, and rockin to Zappa and Hendrix when your 101!!! I can see by your face you have much vitality and chi!!

So now Erni you are a computer genius!!!!! I can barely "cut &paste"!!!

 Yes Nancy  w/ the polt. incorrect i have often gotten into a bit of trouble at times..

Ha, Neil, it's true; in fact sometimes the very un-p.c.-ness of them (in the pre-p.c. era) is their funky charm, not that I can claim to be a student of them. Say, here we're talking p.c. and we should be talking c.p. ... :--}  The answer to your question to Erni is probably no, but it's just a guess ...

Nothing wrong Nancy w/ adoring politically incorrect Churchill quotes, in fact those are usually the best ones!!!!! I know some great ones if you want to share?

Do you miss your CP from work Erni???

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on January 18, 2015 at 6:53pm

That Churchill. He apparently also said something like when he gets the urge to exercise he lies down until it passes. Don't you love it?  I do, even though it wouldn't be popular in many circles, and is probably a foolish thing to admit, but there it is.

You living it up by cellphone would be pretty hard to picture, Erni, so we might not have believed you even if you'd claimed to do it.

Always glad to hear your "cyber voice" Nancy!!! And as Churchill said:" Never, Never, Never, never, never, never give  up!"

That's the best award there could be, Neil--thanks for your reminder, and with this blog. Your use of cell phone for necessity is completely unrelated to the distance problem created by other kinds of uses. Glad you're staying safe ...  

Comment by Neil Gordon on January 15, 2015 at 11:22pm

I recently had to get a cell phone(simple one can't download or Google things) because of health problems/safety,etc. I use it maybe 3 times a month if it all?

The award is  that you spend time w/ yourself, loved ones, friends , art, nature, meditation,etc. Its not a total disregard for tech...just not letting it take over your soul..:}}}}

 Das tut uns leid, ;bummer... maybe its a copyright thing???
