I had to write something by hand the other day. I am spoiled by computers, my handwriting has gone downhill and without spell-check, I am lost. This set me to think, do I have enough paper, pens and pencils in my storage? Maybe I should get an old typewriter and some ribbons. I see them in garage sales all the time for almost nothing.
The computer has become my communications with a large part of the world, a source of information that includes the news, the weather and all the encyclopedias you could ever want. Give some thought as to how you would get along without it.
Do you have the books to educate your children, what about next year’s calendar and how about all the information we keep in our phones or on computers. Do you have hard copies of the phone numbers and addresses of your friends and family.
Maps, recipes, family histories, survival notes and many other things should be backed up on paper. Now I see the trend of people buying their books on Kindle or similar devices. If the computers fail how will it affect you.
