Things have definitely changed over the years. I remember when little hand-held calculators were the hype and considered a huge progress. We learned in school how to use them.


And yes, computer technology has definitely changed the way we communicate nowadays. Nearly everybody has a cell phone and/or a laptop or computer.


Computers have changed the ways we communicate and have made all kinds of communications a lot less costly Ė and more convenient for the people who have the necessary knowledge to operate all these modern gadgets.


Especially the younger folks seem to be addicted to their cell phones. Some of them are actually unable to hold a serious conversation without using their cell phones.


And when pushing for all this modern gadgets to take over our daily lives, please consider the fact there are still quite some folks who donít know how to operate all these gadgets and are automatically locked out, if all communication is done by these gadgets.


In my opinion there is still nothing better than face-to-face meetings and discussions, because faces are often more truthful than the words coming out of the mouth in that face. Remember, most faces still havenít learned how to be political correct!

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
