HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone - Happy New Year to you all.  May 2012 see all your New Year dreams come true.  What an amazing time we live in.  I can remember when we didn't have the internet and yet today I could not imagine my life without it!  I can remember a day when we didn't have TV - in fact, we only got TV in 1974 in South Africa - the year I graduated from high school.  I can remember simpler times and a time when I thought drugs were something you bought only in a pharmacy.  I can remember lots and lots about a simpler life than I lead today and definitely a slower pace than I lead today.  Do you think life has become more stressful with all our high-tech gadgets?  I mean I can remember a time without my Blackberry - not so long ago actually.  Now I would feel lost without it.  What did we do in the days before cell phones? - called home from a call box?  :)  What would I do without email or blogging?  Eeek!

Anyway, interesting times, more stressful perhaps, but interesting all the same and I wouldn't want it any different now that I'm used to it.  How about you?  What do you remember?  Would you want to turn the clock back with regard to some things?
