    I've always believed in paper trails . - What if ?

    "Current experts know their stuff but can't think without a computer in front of them" . Roughly quoted from an uncle who was a large part of the space program. - What if ?

    I have to sign my name to bottoms of forms that are filled out by computer programs as to the information being correct. - To actually prove those numbers I would have to again pick up the shovel (old school) and spend hours re-affirming said numbers before I would sign. This is also in anticipation of - What if ?

    As in the current news - What if someone simply pulled the plug ? Wouldn't take much.

    I believe there will always be a place for menial jobs. Even though you are dealing with a human factor in labor it is exactly that , that Wells Fargo is recognizing as valuable in the relationships with their customers that keeps them going.

    Selective grapes in the vineyard at the time of harvest is done by hand crews. Machine pick is quick to give you slop. Gallo resisted machine pick for as long as he could but eventually succumbed to the cheaper way. The hand labor even so is traded to a different time of year and purpose. It does not mean their is no market for hand picked fruit / wine .

    Technology has dumbed us down so much it has taken us away from reality . We could not survive living in a cave . Put a shovel in our hands and maybe we will be able to . The day the plug is pulled will come . Living organic is a strong push that direction. Living sustainable is a more practical approach that gives you past present and future . In the battle with mother nature just who do you think will win ? Will a college education answer that threat ? - I certainly hope so ! - Bottom line "Don't be stupid". ( I think I will sign that one )
