When it comes to friendship, age is no limit

Who is your oldest friend? No, not the person you’ve been friends with the longest, the one who has lived the most years. Who is your youngest friend? If both of those friends are close to your age, you have some work to do. I believe strongly in having friends who are decades younger and also decades older.

A real, live human beats automation

It’s probably an age thing, but in my opinion and in that of many of my friends, automation equals frustration. No, not always, but could we just go back to hearing a live, breathing customer service human being on the phone?

The to-do-list mentality: Procrastinate, then panic

The old things-to-do list is always there, isn’t it? Funny how some things are on the list for days, weeks, maybe even months before finally getting checked off. Those are the things we don’t necessarily want to do, and there is no immediate need to get them completed.

Morning television full of information, not necessarily usable

It isn’t necessarily news you can use, but I’ll admit morning television can be food for thought. While I read the newspaper in the morning, a morning talk show gives me “pop news,” the weather everywhere but here (thank goodness for local cut-ins) and topics that will be discussed “around the water cooler.”
