The world is getting smaller

wp-image-584678719
Today is a good day.
I woke up alive (always useful), had great coffee, worked, came home, watched GOT S08E05…
but best of all, I had a phone-call from a dear friend living in Europe.
It still amazes me, even to this day, how fast technology has jumped.
When I was little ( yea 40+ years ago lol ) , we had the old school analogue phones (manual exchange too) that bounced calls around on copper lines, and internationally via satellite.
I remember the delays on conversations that tech offered..ย 
Then fibre hit, woohoo.. nice.
Then the more modern advent of the mobile phone, call quality internationally took a step backwards but caught up quickly.
Now a GSM call to an overseas friend is pretty seamless … and just now, my chat with my friend in Europe was via one of the many mobile messaging apps available nowadays…
No paying for international calls now, when it’s all via an app and the internets… though I do wonder how long before internet providers start clamping down on apps and charging for “value added” services to allow you to use a messaging app.. ๐Ÿ˜›
Still though, through all that… it’s the best feeling chatting to a dear friend on the other side of the planet… ( excluding those pesky time zone differences ๐Ÿ˜› )

Those technology jumps though.. manual telephone exchange … to mobile apps .. black and white tv to … mobile apps.. no mobile phones too.. mobiles and their apps… life was simpler back then, it was smaller too, and less interesting, but more connected to the community immediately around us, though not so much these days.ย 

 

Nothing quite like seeing people in person though, but that’s not always possible… I wonder.. how will things be in 5 or 10 years time… I wonder.. ๐Ÿ™‚
In the end though, I am always and forever grateful for the beautiful people I am blessed to have in my life, from my friends down the road, to those on the other side of the world, all around the world, everywhere… thank you, and keep exploring. โค
Oh, don’t forget coffee and chocolate ๐Ÿ˜›

BBC News: ‘LED street lights are disturbing my sleep’

‘LED street lights are disturbing my sleep’ – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38526254

Some people will never be happy… I mean, who cares if it’s better for the environment or saves energy or stuff like that.. all they want is something to moan about to make themselves feel a better about their boring lives..

Go out camping… 

Kabab and chips for dinner tonight …. lol so much for being healthy ๐Ÿ™‚

BBC News: Iceberg lettuces and broccoli rationed as vegetable crisis hits supermarkets

Iceberg lettuces and broccoli rationed as vegetable crisis hits supermarkets – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38851097

OK OK. . I have to ask… why.. WHY is this rubbish even news ?
Have people forgotten where their food comes from.. that veggies and the like actually have to be grown. .. Some are even.. Lord forbid.. seasonal…. 

With the amount that people waste .. I hope this so called shortage goes on for a long time and people learn a thing or two.

Italian woman becomes the last person alive today to have lived in 19th century | The Japan Times

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/05/15/world/italian-woman-becomes-the-last-person-alive-today-to-have-lived-in-19th-century/?utm_source=Daily+News+Updates&utm_campaign=7002910d0e-Monday_email_updates16_05_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c5a6080d40-7002910d0e-332799893

Worthy of note… A good read as a part of history hangs on… thr remains of an era that no one less can personally attest to having been there …

What does the future hold for the rest of us.. we are caught in the middle.. we saw the change of a century .. sure..  but nothing as cool as passing through an entire one ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway… good Monday morning people ๐Ÿ™‚ keep well.
