Technology & Terminology

All is going good here in Upper East Tennessee. Hope things are cooking along for you in your part. Around here we have a lot of country folks that don't understand this technology talk that computer owners make these days. Remember if you say something, these good old country folks might misinterpret what you mean. For example, check out the following what they might think you mean when you say something in computer language.

Technology For Country Folks

Some parting words...
Someone told me that people with a clear conscience, probably have a bad memory.

Psalms 19:12 "Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults."

The most powerful channel of communication.......Prayer

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

Joke of the Day
A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

"House" for instance, is feminine: "la casa."

"Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora"), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ("el computador"), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won!
