  1. A beautiful Autumn, Thanksgiving picture…looks like Squash Blossons…yummy to eat too.

    The article you choose… Born To Be Wired … lots of controversey on the subject. We know that the brain is very vunerable…absorbs everything we put into it. The quality of “life”…as we’ve known it will certainly be challanged for those kids using the tech method to move through the world. Since it is here to stay…now what’s to be with the kids…everyone?

    Also Paul your “quote” for the day serves the subject of your article well.

    • Gaia,
      Thank you for your considerable (and reliable) support, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and all my Canadian friends!

      (Yes. Controversial. I have no idea what all the long-term consequences of our tech will be.. but I suspect, not all of them will be good.)

  2. Thanks for your information on this blog. One thing I would want to say is the fact that purchasing electronic products items on the Internet is nothing new. Actually, in the past ten years alone, the marketplace for online electronic products has grown a great deal. Today, you will discover practically just about any electronic gizmo and devices on the Internet, which include cameras along with camcorders to computer elements and video games consoles.

    • “Aldo”,
      Your English is pretty good for a Brazilian.. but you have essentially just told us the sky is blue.

      The usual method for spamming blogs to get linkbacks is to flatter the writer… something like, “You are a wonderful blogger! I am so glad I found this website! I am sending it to all my friends right now!

      Hope I helped, and good luck with your Internet “money machine”!
