Smile Spring break with the family

I was out of town for the last couple of days. I took the family to 6 Flags in San Antonio for a mini vacation. I totally tuned out all news for 48 hours. I was internet free and blissfully oblivious.

It was interesting and kind of sad to see so many kids at the amusement park playing games on iphones/DS and even iPads/tablets as they moved around and waited in lines for rides. When I was a kid, we were always too busy flirting with the opposite sex!

It's hell playing catch up now, but that's the price one pays for a vacation (even the two day variety!).

Phones are turning everyone into queers.

I use a phone designed for old people. No games, no touch screen, just huge buttons

Right on, boss. Why work hard if you can't enjoy some time off. Glad you took advantage and unplugged for a few days. Feels real good when I do that too.

“The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war.
Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin.
But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.”

Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'

They got up, unplugged the Computer, and threw out my wine.
