SHARE YOUR WORLD 1-30-2022


Dalek

Welcome to Share Your World! 

Additionally, I offer a ‘Gratitude’ Section for those who like a little affirmation with their questions!  It’s always optional to participate in that portion of  SYW of course. 

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Create a Share Your World post. 
  2. Then post the link to that blog post.
  3. Alternatively, leave your answers in the comments box of this post.
  4. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  5. Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why that happens is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!   Lately I’ve had a lot of comments remarking that the pings are not working.  So leaving a link to your post in the comments is probably safest.  Thanks!
  6. Some questions might be recycled from time to time.  Sorry if they come too close together!  The number of interesting questions (in my opinion) is finite.   I try to mix them up judiciously but bungle that sometimes.  Mea culpa!

**********************************************************************

Today a couple of the questions have long explanations attached.   Sorry about that.  I’ve highlighted the question portion of each lengthy explanation in a different color so you can easily find it for brevity’s sake.

Questions

What is one topic you love to talk about?


Ask the wonder question . But so, suppose there was a magical wizard standing right in front of you and you could turn your life into anything you wanted, what would you do? ‘  For example: What, who, where, why? ‘  (Short explanation:  Suspend disbelief and suppose for a moment that you COULD turn your life into anything you wanted it to be.  Answer any or all of those “W” codicils as you wish)


(This one has been asked before in various ways)
Could you adjust to life without any internet?
This means the net has theoretically failed and there’s no cyber connection any longer.  Things have gone back to the old ways of land-line telephones (because cells don’t work without the ‘Net) and hand written letters.  Paper newspapers and magazines.  Hard bound books.  Having to actually do finances with ledgers, paper and pen or pencil.  There are a myriad of things the internet brings with it that I think we’ve all gotten so used to that we now take them for granted.   The Millennials and generations after them don’t know the ‘old ways’ at all really in my opinion. (the last sentence is a gross generalization and I apologize for a bit of tunnel vision with it!)


What do you think is unique about the human ‘animal’ (homo sapien)?

GRATITUDE SECTION  (As always, optional)

Share some encouraging words that you’d say to someone who was feeling down.

(and just because it fit the gratitude prompt today), a little humor:

It’s all in fun, no judgement here!

  1. There’s nothing I like better than going into a record store and chatting to the owner about all things music. That’s my favourite topic to talk about and I’d talk to anyone who’s interested in music.

  2. I had “Changing Seasons” today, so this will be up the other side of midnight.

    You youngsters have very limited vision about “the way things were before the internet.” You know we got to the moon before we had wi-fi? Television? Movies? All long before w-ifi. Bookkeeping and calculators? Long before wi-fi. We had movies first on tape, then on DVD. We still have them and when our internet punks out — which it does rather often — we own movies and books, including audiobooks on CD. The one thing we gained with wi-fi was/is EMAIL. The ability to keep in touch with anyone in the world. For those of us who don’t get out much, it was a godsend and I would miss it. But telephones worked too and those old non-digital phones worked even when the power went out.

    You are in my son’s age group. You got some of the pre w-fi era, but Garry and I got all of it. I think there was much to recommend it and at least we didn’t have to listen to the morons who get all the information from Facebook or some other misinformation network. There is a lot of the “now world” I would happily live without.

    1. Very true Marilyn, I was born before satellite TV, cell phones, Walkmans, personal computers, MP3 and i-pods. I listened to 33 1/3 and 45 vinyl records on a record player/”stereo” (because it had a cassette deck and an AM/FM radio); my mother had 78 vinyls which she’d play sometimes too. We had a hands on (meaning we were the channel changers, not a device) TV in black and white for a number of years, and it didn’t bother us any. I think I was 14 when we first got a color TV. We listened to the car radio, and in time would record (on cassette tape) our favorite songs off the radio and make the 1st mix tapes. Your wonderful comment has sparked a post for me, and I hope it’s okay that I share what you wrote in that. Inspiring as always! Thanks, Marilyn! 🙂
