      Oh, wow, the iPad one resonated with me big time – its funny how people seem to equate outcomes with tools that can be theoretically be used to achieve those outcomes.

      @Susan – YES to the one about every time you spend money, you are voting for the world you want. I think about that a LOT. I don’t always cast the kind of vote that I would be proud of, but I do always think about it. I am a work in progress.

      Ok, not a picture or from Facebook, but I just read this as a comment to an online article and it resonated:

      “I remember when my sister and I were clearing out my parents’ house after my dad passed away. It’s amazing how much sentiment is tied to stuff. I was agonizing over putting Grandma’s vases–that my mother loved–into the estate sale until my pragmatic sister said, “She probably bought them at Woolworth’s.”

      Since then, I’ve been on a mission to rid my own home of stuff I don’t need. It’s freeing.”

      once I was at a Remembrance Day (Nov. 11th)parade commemorating the end of WW1 and my roommate at the time looked over at me during the biplane missing man formation and said rather bitterly, “I’ll bet you just want to tap tap tap that one over into position, don’t you”

      I think we’d just had a rather tense discussion about bathroom cleaning.

      Cool about the Navajo, Claycat!

      I’ve heard about the “Islamic flaw” where a “mistake” is built into a design so Allah sees you are not trying to outdo him in perfection. However, I asked some Muslim friends about it and they’d never heard of it.

      So, we were next door for Thanksgiving, and 2 of the couples daughters were there with their spouses, and between them 3 teenaged girls (and one who is 9). All three of them were on their phones the whole time except when we actually sat down to dinner!

      That is so true! At different times, I pick different ones in hopes that I can have it all but it doesn’t work. My DD in college reports somethings similar. You can have good grades, adequate sleep and a social life: but again, you have to pick two.

      They are all things that people posted on Facebook or, in a few cases, Pinterest. They just show up! Guess it’s a case of when you are ready for the message, it’s there.
