I have recently connected with a few of the young people I met when I was in Ghana. They have Facebook profiles, and we are now friends and chat online sometimes. My sister Rita has asked me if we could get her a digital camera, a simple one. I’m not sure what to get because I don’t want to get something that is so cheap that one has to hold it still for ten seconds to get a decent photo, or one that only shoots outside. However, cameras can get expensive, and we can’t afford something too fancy. I have to keep my eye out.
I saw Thor a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, it was great. It was my first 3D movie, and I was blown away!! I was seriously sitting there during the previews saying “I can’t handle this!!” Haha! Never take that technology for granted; it is something amazing.
