Time for a Change of Scenery

Tomorrow we’re getting out of here for a little while on our every-few-years excursion to visit family and friends in Arizona.

In addition to catching up on analog relationships, my primary goals for this trip are to relax, do a little sightseeing, take some pictures, make a dent in my pile of reading materials. Did I mention relax?

And since all the usual digital tools will be going along, plus having plenty of time while waiting for everyone to figure out what to do next, expect more than a few rants in this space and especially on Twitter.

One very nice difference for this vacation is that we’re flying first class, thanks to an abundance of frequent flyer points that needed to be cleaned out of the Delta account before their next chapter 11 and/or merger.

So, we’re off to McCain country for a highly anticipated change of scenery.

Do you think John will invite us over for barbeque when we cruise through Sedona? :-)

Forced Family Fun

Offered without comment:

An amusement park in the UK is planning to ban the use of PDAs.

A THEME park has banned adults from using pocket computers — so they spend more time having fun with their kids.

Any parent seen tapping on a PDA will have it confiscated by special wardens at Alton Towers.

It’s only a short test for “next week’s May half-term” (whatever that is) but if successful, they may make the ban permanent.
