ON THE BACK BURNER

July 4

I am very excited. There was a message on my iPad from Fitbit. I just earned a Marathon Badge. I don't know how Fitbit could know this, but I love it. I am not even sure what this is. I can't wait to see what I earn next, maybe a sun visor. It is pretty scary when an electronic device knows more about you than your spouse. This bracelet knows how many hours I sleep. How? How much I exercised. How? Who needs security cameras when everyone can have a bracelet that records their movements. If they had GBS in them, everyone could be tracked. It could know your Social Security number, your passwords and your bank account. You would swipe your wrist and all transactions would be completed. I forgot.. blood type and organ donor information. You wouldn't have to visit your doctor. Your heart rate and lung sounds ,everything would be automatic. And I thought that when I read "1984 " by George Orwell this was fantasy. It's on my wrist.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
