    That was fantastic. I miss the "human" interaction that nowadays we have lost due to the technology, as everything in life there is a good and a bad side always. I stop sending birthdays and holidays greeting throug e-mail, facebook, text mssages, etc. I went back to send handwritten cards to my friends and family. My niece who lives in Spain was grateful for the card, specially because "it was very nice to receive mail that is not just bills" and that was worth the effort.

    That is wonderful, though I enjoy the new technology, it can never take the place of old style conversations and interaction. We have to have a balance. Sometimes I stop watching t.v, stop answering leisure calls, and get off my computer and it is so refreshing. It always reminds me that I can live without it.
