    Same here. I didn’t get a cell phone until I was in my 20s, honestly, kind of regret it.
    yeah, people at work laugh at me when I do math on scratch pads when I have a calculator and a computer there. But I tell them I prefer to work it out. Surprisingly, I have the 2nd lowest error rate out of the 32 of us. The lady who’s error rate is better than me does the exact same thing, all math on paper, but she’s 30 years my senior

      I didn’t let my daughter have a smart phone until she was 12 and I limited her use of it. I have slowly allowed her to expand her use of it so that she keeps a balanced perspective of its benefits and is very aware of its risks. When she dives into it to deeply, I take it away and get her to come up for air of being able to live without it before I let her have it back.

      Technology is a double edged sword. It brings great benefits, but also significant risks if you lose yourself to it. Teaching her the balance between the two is my primary mission for making her become a fully functional adult in the modern World. Technology is just a tool of this reality, not a reality of it’s own.

      So far, at age 15, she has learned the lessons well.

        Without my phone from 06:00 until 11:00 was stressful. I was worried about losing all my stuff due to the stone dead phone.
        Yup, 90% of my contacts didnt return. Music took a couple hours to return. E-mail, had to set up a new addy so my providers had an e-mail to send a password/verification to.
        Im gettin a little crazy over all this.

                      Hell, for a lot of us even push button phones didn’t show up until after high school. We grew up spinning the rotary dial!

                      Cable TV? A dream...and if you had it, it was a cable stretching across the floor to a push button controller box.

                      My first year of college, they had posters all around campus saying “MTV...you might not get it, but you will.”

                        This evening I am like a 4 year old in a candy store.... Classic Industries sent me a paper catalog. I have not had a catalog like this in my hands in maybe 20 years. This is almost too much.... :popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::thumbsup::usflag::usflag::usflag::thumbsup::canada::canada::D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:steering::steering::rofl::rofl:

                                  It didn't get out of the 60s today and it's already in the 40s and dropping.

                                  It was 72 here today. 62 here now. Maybe you live too far south. :lol:

                                  By the way, it is getting windy for here to be. Started 30 minutes ago.

                                    Weather rule #1 on this part of the coast .. If you don't like the weather, give it a few minutes. It will change. :lol:

                                      And here it is the opposite. If you don't like the weather, rest assured, it will be the same sunshine the next half a year. :lol:
