Am I the only one having a hard time believing Buck has 1. been to a library (the cart the homeless people push around Woodruff park doesn't count) and B. read 20 books? ( unless board books count)

X2. No FaceSpace either. (And I'm only 37)

I've been threatening my wife and daughter that I'm going to open a FB account, but I think they know I'm bluffing...

I definitely agree with the comment about living life via a 4" screen...

And I remember my grand parents calling the TV the boob tube. So just a different medium for a different generation. Do you think you will regret sitting in front of your 60 inch for hours on end? Just giving a little perspective. But I'm definitely not going to argue that we all spend too much time on these 4" screens.

On a cool note back on topic! We just passed 100 followers in a pretty short time period.

My wife has a facebook acct... I have no face...

I'm actually worse then just "behind technologically"... I'm resisting that techno crap...

When I finally upgraded my phone it was only because the service went from analog (I think) to digital (I think), My wife explained it like this "the guy banging your signal out with two sticks on a log... retired"

wish I knew where chuck norris's cave was...

I wonder if First Nation elders sat around complaining about the gathering of new ideas and trading with new communities?

We don't need clay pots to cook.

Flint knapping? Why can't we just keep sharpening sticks?

I don't know. But one thing is for certain; being a smart a$$ will never go out of style.

Careful now! No one said it was allowed to catch up with the FB page!

Keep it coming, GP. You're doing it right apparently.
