Independence Day  or should I say independence Week

This is in reguards to my prev post.I am suggesting a independence week from PCs and mobile phones

From the 4th July for one week we break our dependence from out PCs and Mobiles and actually get out there and meet our friends face to Face and make new friends chat to people say hi

I know people use phone and PCs for work  but as soon as you have finished work  dont use the pc or mobile phone.Before the week starts  make arrangements to meet up for a drink or a meal use the land line or write a letter and use snail mail.

Go round to your friends or family dont txt them or email  meet them face to face.Tear your self away from the screen.Lift your head up put a coat on and go out and meet up

To day I was out having lunch with the wife and near us was a lady having coffee.The thing was she was on her own  having coffee but was on her phone to a mate who was also having coffee on her own.Are we getting that detached from meeting people face to face that we have to go to a coffee shop on our own and talk to friends  also on their own who are also having coffee via a mobile phone.To me the idea is to meet face to face  and have a coffee together in the same place at the same time.

What next friends getting drunk together. But not actually together both sit different bars having a drink and conversing via txt messaging.

Irish cops have finally uncovered the identity of one of the Emerald Isle’s “most reckless drivers” – a Pole who had by June 2007 clocked up over 50 speeding fines and parking tickets on the Garda Pulse computer system without once being convicted of a crime against motoring.

The penny finally droppped when a Garda traffic division operative discovered that Prawo Jazdy “is actually the Polish for driving licence and not the first and surname on the licence”.

He elaborated: “Having noticed this I decided to check on Pulse and see how many members have made this mistake. It is quite embarrassing to see that the system has created Prawo Jazdy as a person with over 50 identities.

“He can also be found on the Fixed Charge Processing System as well. This mistake needs to be rectified immediately and a memo sent to the members concerned.”

According to the Irish Times, the gaffe was because the Poles phased out the old paper licence in 2004, and replaced it with the EU credit card-style model – which carries the words “Prawo Jazdy” write large at the top.

The holder’s actual name appears underneath in somewhat smaller letters, the Times notes.

The Pulse system has now been suitably updated with a new section “advising officers of the layout of foreign driving licences”
