ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct. 6

Modern technology is so wonderful. You can sit in your living room in Jerusalem , use your computer to find a Kosher meat market in the USA , order Kosher meat from a place in Seattle  Washington , pay with a credit card, and have it delivered to a house in Port Townsend, Washington. Amazing. I had a conversation with a grandson today about checks. He doesn't even have checks. I hardly write a check anymore. He shows some app on his phone, I just use my credit card. And use auto pay when the statement is due. What a difference from when I used cash for purchases. I would carry a blank check in my wallet but I almost never used it. Now, I look at coins and they look unfamiliar. I don't even use coins any more. If I get them, I throw them in a container . I don't want them weighing down my credit card wallet. I use the ATM machine to have some bills in my wallet. The bills last a few months because everything is credit card and online. I wonder what is in store for us next .Maybe some day, pigs will fly.

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.
