Sunday--Happy New Year--

Jenna Woginreich's article in the Guardian rings a bell. When we needed new phones we deliberately went with "dumb" phones--not the old hard wired kind but not the high tech mobiles. It works well for us for emergencies and for the infrequent times we need to communicate with family or others--or they with us. Our car does have OnStar but we never activated it. We rarely (as in almost never) put on the radio and we check where we are going, if we haven't been there before, with a Google search for directions. Technology can be nice and convenient but so much of it is intrusive and not so convenient.

An interesting article by Dorthe Nors: On the Invisibility of Middle-Aged Women. And then there are the rare women who, finally, become visible in old age.
