Fred Flintstone

I’ve been told by many people, including family members, that I’m still living in the Stone Age. They say that I am living in a cave. My retort has always been that I am very comfortable living in my cave.

They say that I am not adapting very well to the new ways of the world. I fervently disagree!

In the early 1960’s Bob Dylan wrote a song called “The Times they are a Changin’”. I loved this song because I was young and rebelling against society.

Dylan sang “Your old road is rapidly aging. Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand. For the times they are a-changin'”. As I write this I can hear him singing this song.

I was an adherent of this philosophy at that point in my life. I was very young, impressionable and also very stupid; unaware of life’s innuendos.

I think that I have just been sidetracked by Bob Dylan. His song “Don’t Think Twice” has now replaced Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” as an echo in my mind.

Back to the subject at hand, this is progressing and adapting to our new technological world.

I want to say that I have been on the internet since 1994, and that I have had a personal computer since 1992. Many people that I know didn’t enter cyberspace until the late 1990’s

I developed my website in early 1998. However, I am new to Blogging. I’m still learning!
As Forrest Gump would say “That’s all I have to say about that.”

My daughter bought me a DVD player, for Christmas, 3 years ago. I hooked it up a year and half later to show my Army buddies a DVD of the city where we were stationed, in Africa, in the 1960’s. It’s still connected, but I rarely use it. I do own 3 DVD’s! All three were gifts. I have tons of VHS and BETA tapes to watch if I have the inclination to do so.

I’ve now made a giant step! Today I signed up for a higher speed internet connection, a digital phone system with unlimited long distance calling, with caller ID and call waiting as well as digital cable.

Why? Because, it will cost me about $10 less per month than I am currently paying for lesser services. It’s a good deal from Bright House, my cable company.

Perhaps I’m coming out of the Stone Age. Although, I’m not quite ready for a cell phone, everyone that I know seems to have one. I don't really want anything that I do not really need, especially if it will cost me more dollars.

I’m not against progress; I’m just against progress that will take more money out of my pocket!
