Justin's response to "This Internet Fad"

A lot of people have asked me why I am not a big e-mailer or why I am not into FaceBook or MySpace. I'm just not a big computer guy. My Mom did tell me today that "the Net" is a great way to keep in touch, kind of hard when you get computer tips from your Mom.
In fact this is the second time I have attempted to write this. I just had all this awesome stuff to say; and I just erased it. And now I can't remember what I had just typed. And now my fingers really hurt. And I don't know the number to Tech Support. Thus my distrust of all things computer.
E-mail for me is a confusing place, great letters mixed in with ridicoulus forwards, offers from a Tanzania millionare wishing to award me $10 Million dollars (wouldn't $10 Million Tanzanian dollars be like $40 American dollars anyway) and offers to "enhance my Tool." This to me is odd, the drill I got from last Christmas works just fine; and how do they know this anyway?

People from the '70s thought 8-tracks would last forever...

Well, here goes...our very 1st blog! I check my email on a semi-regular basis. Justin checks his email once a month, at best. He likes to tell people that he thinks the internet might be a fad...hence, the subtitle of this thing. Our friends Wes & Meagan were kind enough to show us their cute cottage in Troy amidst kitchen renovations, etc, when we discovered their blog...The 504 Cottage...too cute for words. So after much adieu, here we are...blogging. We still hold firm to the fact that we will not be facebookers or myspacers or any of the like. We had much rather catch up with our friends and family face to face, or at least on the phone, but just in case the internet proves J wrong and stays around longer than 8-tracks, we decided it might be fun to stay in touch with those we love and don't get to see often enough (Wes & Meag) via...you guessed it...the internet.
