My husband and I hosted the Family Thanksgiving event this last Thursday at our place. I took great care to shop early, clear the "to do" list, and made plans on serving the meal promptly at noon (for those traveling from out of town, so we could eat early and then enjoy visiting before all had to be back on the road). I am usually right on target with the committed time...but not so this day.

Okay folks, I still write checks and use cash.....I do very little online, so I'm not about to put my healthcare information on there! I'm usually one to try new things and think of myself as quite progressive, but I'm just not comfortable with the Google option of Health records on the Web. It's going to take alot of prodding for this consumer to store my data in portable electronic files!

YouTube service was disrupted on 2/24/08....this apparently was an effort by a foreign government to block access to some video clips they did not agree with. The government's telecommunications authority regulator of that nation's telecom, ordered the internet service providers to block access to a SPECIFIC YouTube video. But in a bizarre twist, the government's efforts to block the clip wound up affecting YouTube users world-wide.

What will they think of next? Some magazines are going to try out this strategy for marketing consumable products. Welch's is apparently going to take out full page ads in People's Magazine this month so readers can sample it's grape juice by licking the page! Whoa...that's just plain icky!
