Is letter writing a lost art?

My oldest Son has joined the Marines. One of the, if not the proudest times of my life.

I have started writing letters to him. This is bringing something to light that I hadn't realized. I have forgotten how to write a letter!

Now I don't mean I have forgotten how to write or spell. I have lost the subtle skill of communicating in written form. The immediate nature of e-mail or text messaging, has removed the need to be thorough when writing. You have to be clear and concise when writing a letter that may take a week to get to it's recipient , and another week to get back to you.

I find myself writing, and re-writing sections of the letter. I don't want to leave anything hanging were Chris might have question or worry. If I do, it will be 2 weeks before I can clarify it.

I guess this is just another example of technology doing away with the need for an elegant skill. For now I am going to try and revive this need and keep it alive. :)

Restarting blog

Been helping the Wife setup a blog for her to use as a classroom website.
Which made me realize I have pretty much ignored my personal blog.

So I installed Blogger-droid on my Droid so I can update my blog from where ever.

Published with Blogger-droid v1.4.5

Facebook addiction

I have been accused of being addicted to facebook. Well in some ways I agree..

I access FaceBook multiple times a day, but if I find myself without internet access it doesn't bother me.

It does bother me to be without e-mail access, but FaceBook can wait a day or 2.

So I would say I am addicted to checking my e-mail, but not FaceBook.

Well it's about time..

The fact that I haven't posted anything to my blog is a testiment to how much time I waste on Twitter and Facebook..

I started this blog to have a place to rant/bitch/moan etc, but I have just ignored it.

Now is the time....

Rant, Bitch, Moan, Rant, Bitch, Moan.. There now that I have that done, I can start posting.
