...and other mystifying thoughts.
These clouds I can see, but "The Cloud" is a mystery to me.
One of my major events this winter was getting a new cell phone. It was a totally spur of the moment decision. I walked into one of the phone stores at this corner just to get some information on prices. After a ten minute chat I realized I could save money with little or no downside. I had thousands of pictures on my old phone and the thought of sitting in the phone store while they were transferred seemed to be an endless process. I declined the transfer, because the pictures live in the Google Cloud.
This morning I was thinking about some pictures that I wanted to use and I was happy that they were in "The Cloud." Then it struck me that I really wasn't sure I knew what I was talking about. I'll make an admission that though I have some idea of technology, the details are very murky to me. I still am amazed that I can stand on this street corner and look at Facebook on my phone. I am more amazed that I can send a message to a friend in California or England or India and they can answer me a minute later, all without leaving this corner of my neighborhood. Of course I still find the details of electricity and modern plumbing mystifying, too, along with brain surgery and rocket science.
So much for my musings on technology. Tomorrow my post will return to earth.
I enjoyed the sunshine today, though it was cold standing on the corner taking this picture. I continued my decluttering and went through several more drawers. I made it to the Salvation Army, the drugstore and the fruit and veggie store. Beautiful strawberries from California!
I hope you had a lovely St. Patrick's Day and a great evening. Thanks for visiting and take very good care.
