    Things that sneak up on us
    Hello:

    I LOVE food, but it snuck up on us. I LOVE business, but it snuck up too. The truth is, I LOVE guns, but they snuck up on us.. I didn't mind illegal Mexican workers, but of course, they snuck up on us. I LOVE being protected by the police, and YES, they're sneaking up on us too.

    We LOVED cigarettes. They snuck up on us. The difference is, we DID something about it. We're not doing anything about that other stuff. If we don't, they'll take us over.

    I'll bet some of you haven't a clue what I'm talking about... That's OK. You can go back to the flower page now.

    I'd be more concerned about who understands you than who doesn't.

    Are you okay, excon? There's probably a pretty nurse near you who would be more than willing to take your temp.

    Exy, if your food is sneaking up on you the only advice I can offer is to have it killed before you purchase it. ;)

    We have a flower page?

    Hello again,

    I'd be more concerned about who understands you than who doesn't.
    Really??

    Ok, I'll spell it out..

    Food used to be good for us - now it's not. I don't know WHEN that happened.. Business used to be good for us too.. We RAN the world, but then business turned on US. They don't SERVE us anymore.. They STEAL from us... Guns didn't seem to be a problem, but now that EVERYBODY including the NUTS have 10 or 20 with HUGE magazines, it IS a problem.

    Now, it may be just me, but I believe the cops USED to be the good guys, and now they're not. That snuck up on me too. Do YOU know of anything that snuck up on you?

    Maybe I'm the only one in the world who thinks like that.. If so, I'll live with it, Underlings...

    I agree with J aging is a b*t*h. Turn around one day and all of a sudden you are aching all over... :)

    You do realize that all of you and everything that you see, smell, hear and touch is just an illusion created by my mind don't you? Kind of like a matrix that when I close my eyes for the last time... well it is all over for all... it will all fade to emptiness...

    Changes in technology really snuck up on me and made me feel older. We went from vinyl records, cassette tapes, cds and now digital downloads. Just like VHS tapes, DVD, then Blu-Ray. I still remember hotmail being really modern and cutting edge when I was starting college, now it's considered dated, I never used things like Myspace, Twitter and Facebook.

    Hello earl:

    My VCR was the last bit of technology I understood. Now, I don't know an HDMI cable from an optical one..

    I hate hooking things up too, for my next TV, I'm getting one with a built in DVD player, that will simplify things.

    The sad thing is that I am at a high technology school. I can't do enough to keep ahead of my students. Yikes!.

    I just bought a vcr at Goodwill. I need them so I can hook my dvd machines to my old 18 inch deep tvs. I am not exactly cutting edge in my technology. I think I started falling behind about the time the newfangled tv's with remote control came into being (a few years back).
