I don't have a smart phone so I am very un-sympathetic to their dependence on it. I've also had my own issues with the internet, especially online games like Farmville! I can spend HOURS playing that stupid game. I've gone 'cold turkey' from the games...it wasn't easy.

So, I applaud your restraint & control.
I know just what you mean, Sandra! Most of my time on-line is working with the Ronald McDonald House project and also with the dog rescue that I work with! BUT, it seems that I'm always on line or on the phone! I definitely know how irritating it can be to try to hold a conversation with someone when they look like they are more interested in being on line than in person with you!!!
