For the younger group, all of this uploading and downloading seems to come natural. The kids can stream a video, find an app and burn a disc faster than Scotty could beam up Captain Kirk. As for me, ‘lost in space’ has taken on a whole new meaning. A technically challenged boomer, it’s all very bewildering, but I’m getting there one byte at a time.
Over the years and as a writer, I have learned about the power of the internet. With the press of a button or click of an icon, I can pitch a story, research a topic, contact a colleague or simply waste a little time surfing or bejeweling. It’s also a great way to connect with readers, which is why I have finally joined the 21st Century and staked out a claim to my very own website. So here we are!
My goal here is to blend a little history, a touch of trivia and a lot of fun. Pick an era. Pick a place. Pick a person. We can talk about silent film, Gable and Lombard, Ozzie and Harriet or even The Lone Ranger. The possibilities are endless so I hope that you enjoy these pages as we get to know each other a little better. Now who out there remembers waking up little Susie?
