U Tube

You can learn anything on You Tube. Surgery? No problem. DIY surgeries videoed among friends. One holds the camera filming while the other uses an exacto knife to lance the skin; much laughing, groaning and moaning and that's from the "surgeon". I've been searching for videos on joint replacements. Think of the money I could have saved lately!

At the height of my boredom, a You Tube search will eat up your time in 4 minutes or less increments. Don't ya just love the internet? I was thinking today and I must was painful at times but never the less I persisted. I was thinking of the first 10 years of my life and this past 10 years of my life. I was comparing those times in matters of technology. Even when my daughter and I had our tonsils out at the same time, Tylenol was given for pain. Today it's Lortab elixir and the veins in the throat are cauterized. Lasers were not used when ours were done. The giant steps forward in medical knowledge is amazing let alone the computer/internet explosion. Cell phones? We were lucky to be on a party line when  I was a child and no..a party line isn't what it sounds like. In case you are young enough to NOT know, it was a telephone line shared by many. No private conversations. Your phone calls could be overheard by the other people that shared that line. See why a cell phone for me is a novelty; a giant leap from that party line years ago. 

I'm outta here to type something funky into the search engine on You Tube; it's amazing what you can find by randomness.


  1. I'm old enough to remember party lines!
    I would love the chance to browse Youtube but it's been banned in Turkey for a few years now, along with a fair number of other websites.
    I could use a proxy...I've tried...but I tie myself up in knots trying to do it. I can only cope with so much technology at my age!

  2. Ayak: I found this on the web...go to this site and find the video you want to watch.

    A proxy, specifically works well. Just visit that page and then find the video you want to watch

  3. I've tried it and it doesn't work for me Charlotte Ann, but thank you so much for going to the trouble to find're very kind.
    Have a lovely weekend xxx

  4. I think the technology of today is truly best appreciated by those of us who actually used to walk out into the world without a cell phone.

    Shocking, wasn't it?! :-)
