To text or not to text ... that is the question

by Mary May Larmoyeux

Do you have trouble keeping up with today's technology? I sure to. I got on Facebook to communicate with my kids. But now there's texting and tweeting, and ....

I can't help but think of many years ago when e-mail first came out. My mother was not interested in it—period. There was no sense trying to convince her that she'd love e-mailing back and forth with her children and grandchildren. Snail mail was her preferred method of communication.

Now, I confess that I just learned how to text ... not that I really wanted to. Then why did I do it? Because my grown children wanted me to and I finally gave in. 

But how can we keep up with technology, or should we even try to do this? What do you think?

If you want a laugh, check out this You Tube video that unsuspecting grandparents took of themselves. I laughed out loud when I watched it! Their granddaughter uploaded it to You Tube and it now has millions of viewers!  Enjoy!

Have a great week,
