|Seeing these guys in action really helps put a good definition|
into your mind about what "squirrelly" means.

tree until I got home and looked at the photos.

During today's walk I was reflecting on yesterday afternoon's walk and how impressed I was noticing the number of people who were, in some way, using their phone. Some appear to be listening to something ... music, podcasts, etc. Some were actually in a conversation. Still others just looking at the screen. I've heard that the average person today looks at their phone about 150 times per day. I gave that some thought. I don't think I'm up to that number but I'm going to try to be more aware for a few days and see what I come up with. I recently read a great article about how phones are now starting to take control of our lives. The New York Times published a great cartoon ... screen shot below. On the LEFT is what Steve Jobs envisioned the iPhone to be in 2007. On the RIGHT is what it has become for many people. There is a link to the article below. I guess I'm just real old fashioned but I don't want my phone to take over my life.
