Well my new clothes dryer was delivered today and the darn thing actually performed a musical production for me when it was finished with its first load! I feel as if I’m supposed to dance around and sing now, like Snow White and Cinderella; and I was almost expecting happy little birds to fly out of the inner chamber, when I went to gather my clothes to fold them.
I guess the world is trying to develop ways to disguise our mundane tasks, and somehow help us “find the fun” like in Mary Poppins. And perhaps with the snap of our fingers, our jobs will become an amusing game! Lol….
Well, all I can say is… it did bring a smile to my face, when I thought about how completely ridiculous it is to have an appliance serenading me during the hustle and bustle of my day. Oh what will they think of next! 😜

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?
