We spend all the day posting and surfing, and loading photos, blogging, reading e-mail, sending comments and spending the whole day inside this 17" screen!!! Are we missing the blue sky outside? The rain drops, the green leaves, the colorfull butterfly, the beautiful birds out there? We dont know that. We are addicted to the 17". We are just writing the story of life, the picture of life, the experience of life without having the life. Do you think so? Think that the life is more beautiful than money. Think that you can meet more people if you go out and see the beautiful nature? You can have more friend out there cause they also love the same.

Yeah I guess we spend to much time online that we fail to see the beauty of God's creation. It's funny that at one point, my little brother said *LOL* instead of laughing! hahaha... yeah creepy isn't it? Anyways here's joke that would be fitting this subject. My four-year-old son, Austin, and I spend a lot of time playing school. One of our favorite activities is working on a puzzle map of the United States. As we complete the map, I often quiz Austin on the names of the different states. On one particular day, I asked him what country he lived in. Proudly he declared, "The United States of America Online."

Oh really? I didn't know jokes are not allowed. Why shouldn't they allow it? We can't copy & paste them, we have to type it down word-for-word. Plus, it gives a little humor in the posts. A lighter side of things. Anyways, I was laughing at this one that's why I decided to post it. Thanks for the appreciation.

No, if you take comp out with you then U have to look at your comp, not in the blue sky. If you want to get some from the nature U have to devote to the nature like u can earn most when you post most or response most or look at your comp most of the time. You cant see the blue if you think about your post topic with the comp in your lap. The sky will be grey then. Right

Yes, we are missing a lot. I think that real physical interaction with nature and other people is crucial for the normal development and improvement of our social skills and adaptive coping mechanisms. Becoming too preoccupied with this 17" screen will later result in us becoming unable to both appreciate and cope well with the realities of life. I think we should all take occassional breaks for a nature trip, a group talk with friends or just to open our mouths and get rid of the bad breath.
