Our dishwasher failed this morning so I'm elbow deep in suds and kind of enjoying it. I don't want this job back full time but I'm not complaining because there are more critical appliances that could fail -- like the air conditioner for instance.
Though I don't mind doing a few dishes, I want my washer fixed. I've grown accustomed to my appliances and gadgets. I can't imagine life without a cell phone or the internet.
But dishwashing got me thinking about how much technology I take for granted. Almost daily I get an e-mail from Margaret in England. Sometimes I need to stop and think how amazing that is. And just this morning she sent me her latest review at http://redrosesforauthors.blogspot.com/2008/07/breaking-clouds.html
Isn't it amazing that we can read and rejoice over the same review at Red Roses in mere minutes though a huge ocean separates us. So today I'm saying whoa for Margaret and technology.
