There are some who think that I'm a Luddite. For example, 'Er Indoors bought herself a fancy handphone for her birthday (with the cash I gave her, incidentally), but I still don't want one. Does she really need a camera, video cam, games, music player and all the other gadgets and widgets which can only go wrong?
The simple answer is 'no' because she has to wait for Our Kid to come home so he can switch it on.
And if I had something so complicated and unnecessary, so would I.
(But I do have a camera, albeit without a phone, as can be seen here.)
So, I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that some my quotations are nigh on two centuries old, viz. William Hazlitt, who some consider to be the first 'modern man'.
And if he's modern, even though he's been dead for 170 years, then so am I.
