Turn off TV, computer; spend time with family

To the editor:

I watched a program on TV a short time ago about three generations of men working together in Texas. It was a tool shop started by their family more than 100 years ago.

This is something we don’t see much of anymore. At 9:30 every day in this tool shop, it was Soda and Peanut Time. Nowadays, it’s all about cell phones, computers and going 100 miles per hour.

Put down those cell phones. Shut off that computer. Grab a soda and a bag of peanuts and talk to a family member about your day, or life. I know I will.
