Is There Help Available for How to Drink My Martini? (Hurry, it’s getting warm.)

Is There Help Available for How to Drink My Martini? (Hurry, it’s getting warm.)

I’ve never used the automatic parking feature on the three of my cars which have it. I can park faster and better myself, and the feature still requires me to shift gears myself. I haven’t used the cruise control option on any car, owned or rental, is at least 20 years. I think it’s dangerous in traffic and boring when there’s no traffic.

Manufacturers apparently believe that by providing everything that anyone might want in a single vehicle, they’re doing us a favor (I doubt they’re saving money). I recall when I was younger they had ballpoint pens that had three different colors (black, blue, red) and you pushed a different button for each one to emerge. All of the colors were awful and the pen points terrible.

We recently purchased a “smart” TV for a spare bedroom, and we needed a local specialist to program it, which took an hour. Do I need all of the features on that set in a spare bedroom? Nope. But, take it or leave it.

It seems as if you need to watch a video today to change a battery (I just did, to do that for one of my car keys).

It’s snowing up here, and I can still go out and make a snowball without help or delay. Or can I? Here’s the web site with instructions on how to make the perfect snowball: https://www.funboy.com/blogs/funboy-life/how-to-make-a-snowball#:~:text=Cup%20your%20hands%20and%20then,rotation%2C%20gradually%20increase%20the%20pressure.

Technology, in and of itself, does not represent progress unless it saves us time, protects us better, and improves our performance. Remember GIGO? (Garbage in, garbage out.) How about TINO: technology in, nonsense out.
