Ok… so weird things are happening around here lately. The first thing that’s odd, is that my printer keeps realigning and acting as if it’s about to print something, even though I haven’t attempted to print anything all day. It’s a little eerie, when you’re alone in your office and the printer comes alive all of a sudden.
Secondly, I finally decided to install a My Book Premium Storage backup system for my laptop, and of course I couldn’t get the darn thing to even show up on my computer as a recognizable device! It turned out after a few hours of troubleshooting, that I just needed to plug it into a different USB port. Geez…. I wish somebody could have told me, that all ports don’t work the same!
The third and final mishap of the day, is that all of the blog comments that people have been leaving me lately, have been going directly to my spam folder, and I recently found out that there have been some comments, which I haven’t been getting at all! For instance, my hubby sent me a comment today and it never even showed up. Not even in the spam folder! If I wasn’t married to the man, I never would have known!
Oh the joys of technology!
With all the advances in modern technology, where’s the darn time machine so that I can finally go back! 😉

So I was recently on Amazon, fiddling around with my settings and exploring all that Amazon has to offer, when suddenly I came across, “The Dash Buttons.” At first I had no idea what these were; I had never heard of them and thought to myself… what newfangled gadget do we have here? Well, it seems that for the amazing price of just $4.99, (plus free shipping if you are a prime member), you too can have one of these
strange awesome little gadgets. I know what most of you are probably thinking…. What the heck is a Dash Button? Well, for all of you who haven’t heard of these nifty little gadgets, let me tell you…
The Dash Button is a device that allows you to order common household items which you may be running out of. So for example, let’s say you’re running out of paper towels, trash bags, etc. You simply press the button on the device and it automatically reorders the product for you through your Wi-Fi signal. I started thinking, what’s next? Milk, eggs, cereal? Will we eventually be able to press a button for just about anything we need and suddenly a hover craft will appear and leave the items at our door? The capability is certainly there…. I am not only amazed, but a little scared to be honest. Reminds me of the old cartoon “The Jetsons.” All the Jetsons had to do, was simply press a button in their kitchen, and out would come their food. I always loved that cartoon… I’m simply amazed though, are we finally getting to the age of the Jetsons?
