Thankful for . . . Technology!

There are lots of things to be thankful for this thanksgiving - God, country, and family to name the big three.  But let's not forget about technology!  The turkey-day tech fest began while GrandpaD and GrandmaD were still in the air on the way to our house.  Even though they were flying privately, they let me know how I could track them online while they were still in the air.  I was thrilled that I could see just about everything related to their flight - that they had left early, where they were in the air, that they were diverting north a little to get around some weather, and their estimated time of arrival.  Here is a screen shot.



Ahh, the wonders of modern technology.  As we sit back and enjoy the old traditions of today it will also be good to enjoy the new tradition of googling any question that comes up during the day.
