Hi, my name is Kathy and I’m a technoholic.  I never thought I would have to admit this.  I Thought I could keep it hidden from the rest of the world, but the truth has finally hit me.  I’ve decided to come clean and bring everything out in the open. They say confession is good for the soul, so here goes.

I grew up in a time when technology was just getting off the ground.  I went through vinyl records, 45’s, 8 tracks, cassettes and CDs.  Every new phase brought a new kind of excitement.  My youth was spent in front of a console radio that expelled a green light upon which I focused and became hypnotized as I listened to Inner Sanctum and the Shadow.  Howdy Doody was my after-school friend as I raced home to watch his antics on our brand new 10-inch television.  Before eating supper, we’d tune in to Kukla, Fran and Ollie – a show filled with puppet shenanigans designed to keep us fastened to the box as mom made our meal. Each year became a new adventure as my addiction to technology festered.  I couldn’t get enough of it.

When I entered my teens, I felt proud because I had the only portable radio to take to the beach.  Later that would turn into a boom box.  Eventually it would be replaced with other devices.  When the internet was born, I thought I had reached the peak.  Everything was there instantly.  No need for a Thesaurus or Dictionary.  It was right there.  Time passed and came the Ipad, Smart Phone and Smart TV.  I can’t imagine it getting any better than this, but there’s always a need for more, isn’t there?

I haven’t even begun to dive into the games, although I had a brief affair with Packman in the 1980s. I never thought I would be replacing personal communication with texting, but it was the final step.  I now realize that I’ve run the gamut, and nothing will ever satisfy the desire for more technology.  Every day is a battle. I’m getting old and have become a chair potato. My knees are creaking, by back is aching and my backside is getting bigger and bigger from being fastened to that chair. I’m ready to quit.  But I can’t, I have to write my blog for today!!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
