Staying in touch through technology

I am continually amazed by the things we can do thanks to technology. I am not going to get into whether our world is better because of it or whether we have become so dependent upon it that it would be hard to function without it. I came from the era where it costs money to make a long distance phone call. I remember the phone company using the slogan “Long Distance is the Next Best Thing to Being There.” It rings true, but it has long been surpassed by innovations that weren’t even a twinkle in an innovator’s eye at the time.

While the column has my picture on it, I really don’t like to use the space with “I” and “me,” occasionally, “we,” but this time is going to be an exception. For the first time in nearly two years, I wasn’t able to attend a Bartow High School football game. My work called me away to Effingham, Ill. It’s OK if you have never heard of it.
