Me? Addicted to Technology????

I am, I am, I am. I had been so pleased with myself to have found a way around having no Internet access from our little French haven -- I do have cell phone access and my newish smart phone had e-mail capability which meant that at least I could keep track of that side of things without incurring to much additional cost -- £10 a month for 50 Megabytes -- and even an occasional foray onto the Internet if necessary. I had not even considered that my phone would completely pack up.

I get occasional 'fixes' in town at the Cyberbase center -- but The Man does not like hanging around waiting for me and I've been lucky to get anything over an hour of time -- which is probably running out right now!!! Oh hell! Guess I'll just have to make due with the rose -- ice cold, the sunshine, and the 'puttering' sound of The Man. Not to mention the 4 Men and their motorcycles due this afternoon for a couple nights of La Vie Francaise...

  1. I'd say that a glass or two of ice cold rosé is a pretty decent trade off! Enjoy that sunshine.

  2. I depend on the internet so much for keeping in touch by e mails and skype...but at least the local town is full of internet cafes with helpful young men who can help this IT autistic old bat to cope...

  3. Enjoy the sun and the rosé--it doesn't sound too much of a harship ;-)

  4. G'day Broad. I would like to be there with you to enjoy a glass or two. Must admit I am lost with the Internet. Have fun. Take care. Liz...

  5. Isn't it amazing how important technology has become to us? Well, maybe your time in France is a chance to just sit, enjoy the surroundings -- and the rose!

  6. Obviously, I am on the internet quite a bit, but it all happens from work (I have a very accommodating workplace.) No computer at home, have never owned a cell phone, do not have any sort of music player beyond a CD... Luddite from way back, really.
