I felt I was becomong a real drag to my younger associates at the arts center. They shared a common interest with me in enjoying the works of the masters, but I was dragging my feet in their world. It took me forever to even obtain a cel phone. The thought of texting shook my boots. It wasn't until I visited one of their businesses that the usefullness of the technical world snapped me into reality. She was using furniture retail software right in front of my eyes. When I saw how easily she did five hours work in ten minutes, I was sold on learning more. Since then, I have replaced my old note pad for an iPad.
