What Have You Learned Lately?

This is a great time to be alive.  Yes, with all that we have going on in this fast-paced world, would you agree with that?

There is so much information available to us about anything.  Google and other search engine sites can give us more information than we could possible read in a lifetime.  Don’t you just love it!

At times this can seem a bit overwhelming.  For me personally, I can get mesmerized checking out stuff online.  Facebook is one thing I don’t get into too often.  That being said, I check it every couple days.  I do have information through my email about various Friends’ posts, however.

How about you?  How do you like the availability of so much information about everything?  And what about Facebook?  How do you use it?

Recently I got a chuckle…  We were having breakfast at our local ‘Coney Island’ –(for those outside of Michigan that’s like a diner), and I overheard the server talking to a customer who must have been 80 years old.  He said something about being a bit under the weather lately.  She continued by asking him what was wrong and then I heard her ask if he had Internet?  I got distracted and didn’t catch the rest of this exchange, but it sounded like she was going to suggest that he Google his symptoms or illness…  An 80 year old, very frail-looking man!  Really!!!  I don’t think so!

Anyway, amusing how much information we all have access to.  That is if we know how to access it.
