I’m a computer geek, and Internet geek, and a gadget geek. Yes I’m a super geek and proud of it. Being a geek and especially one who’s easily swayed by shiny gadgets, blinking lights, and the idea that there is “an app for that” I upgrade often. I don’t wait around for a new Internet browser I download beta and developer versions so I can play now. When a new version of software comes out I’m upgrading that same day. New hardware released and I’m plotting how much I can sell my old for to lower the cost of the new. I’ve always been one to upgrade as soon as something better came out. With computers this was an expensive hobby so I had to put boundaries in place to keep it under control. Same thing goes for video game systems, software, etc.
It’s not all geek stuff though, look around at your own life and you’ll find stuff you upgrade. VHS to DVD to Blu-Ray. Cassette tapes, to CD’s to MP3’s to streaming radio. 1st car junker, to sports car to family car back to sports car. bunk beds to futon to twin to a queen or king sized bed.

There are a lot of things I want to say about what went down with all the recent high profile relationship disasters. Just to recap in the recent months we’ve seen the following go down:
Jon & Kate begin the Divorce process
South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford caught in a relationship with a woman from Argentina
Chris Brown & Rhianna have domestic problems
Billy Joel filed for Divorce
Usher filed for Divorce
Mel Gibson filed for divorce
and many many more….
Out of all this it’s not a surprise to see the divorce rate in America climbing. As a divorced man I have a lot of emotions, feelings and of course opinions about a lot of those people listed above. I also have my fair share of thoughts for those non celebrity divorces occurring without the headlines and media presence. Continue reading “Let's Talk Relationships….”
