And the VCR blinks on and on.....

Seriously.  Technology.  <sigh>

How much do we really need?

As a Mom who doesn't want to be left out in the cold in the area of gadgetry, how much time do I really need to invest in this area?  I don't want to be the next 'Gizmo Queen', but, I don't want to run shrieking when presented with a iphone or other such creature.

A good friend of mine is launching her blog.  She asked me questions about how to do 'this and that'.  Fortunately, they were easy enough.  Then, she got to the one that I've been trying to figure out myself for months......finally, I turn to some veteran bloggers for help.  They explain it so easily, effortlessly....just click here, do this, copy that, sign up for this and 'BAM' it'll appear on your blog.  So, following their steps, I monkey my way through (pun intended) and 'BAM' nothing......ugh!

The truth is, the only reason why I'm doing what I'm doing is by trial and error.  Unfortunately, html code doesn't recognize anything but absolutes, so, I get no points for my efforts.

Maybe I'll just turn it over to my 12 year old, while I watch the light on my VCR blink '12:00'.....


  1. Made me giggle today! Thought I'd zip to the comments to let you know. :) Blink. Blink. Blink. (not the part about html being a royal pain, just the um rest of it)

  2. Glad it made someone laugh ;-) Thanks for stopping by my fellow rockhound!!!

  3. Giggle. I'm a tech junkie, but it's difficult even for me to keep up with everything.

    We don't even have a vcr these days. ;) When ours gave up the ghost, we didn't purchase a new one. Even though I knew how to program the vcr, it still would often be blink, blink, blinking. lol!

  4. Thanks for stopping by Heather. When I'm stuck trying to get a gadget I'll know who to call ;-)
