A termite inspector who blogs

The blogosphere has definitely made the World a much smaller place. Through blogs we are actually reading about and sharing in the lives of bloggers, who live literally on the other side of the globe.

Skeet’s stuff is the blog of a lady from Hawaii. The way she describes her job is quite amusing "this old gal crawls around under houses and examines bug poop for a living." She's a termite inspector.

Spent some time reading her old blogs. I don't know why but found one long post titled "Letters" particularly interesting and touching. Makes me reflect on myself. I realise that I haven't sent a hand written letter (not counting cards) for a long long time.

Check out her blog.

Thanks to technology....no more waiting in anticipation for snail mails! Quite sad that my kids are missing on this letter writing/going to the post office to post letters/queueing to buy stamps etc.... May be I should make them write letters to grandma & granddad!

This reminds me of a conversation I had with some kids. i was talking about hobbies and mentioned stamp collecting. A few of them had no idea what that was.

It's sad, isn't it, that we've allowed technology to depersonalize so much of our human contact? I've posted the follow-up to that post, if you're interested. Don't want to steal linkage without permission, so I'll pass it on to you in the forums.

Mahalo for the link and your interest!

Skeet: I am not that particular actually. Going over to your blog now.
