I agree with what you say about technology, you just cannot get away from it. Because of this, we seem to have lost the ability to interact with each other. It is all to easy to sit down in front of a computer and bang out an e-mail or a letter whether it is business or personal and make it word perfect, but let me ask you this, wouldn't it be better if you were to receive a hand written letter than to receive an e-mail? Year after year, we receive an end of year term letter around Christmas time telling us what kind of year our friends have had. IMHO that sort of thing is so impersonal and shouldn't be written. Just a few hand written lines would do, in that way it is personal and it means more. As for the other I will let you decide. J.B.
