There's a lady named Siri
I was always somewhat proud to tell people that I was one of the last people in America to not have a cell phone. That all changed on my last trip to the United States of America. My cousin Ron kept teasing me about living in a third world country--- and this and that and the other thing...

Finally he said, "you really need to get an iPhone." I said, I can't afford an iPhone and I really don't want one. He said, "how about I take you to the iPhone store right now and I buy you an iPhone?" 'You serious?' "yeah I'm serious." he said.
My life has changed, it is much different, I now take pictures with my telephone and talk to people on my camera. I listen to music on Pandora for free, anything form traditional Jewish folk songs to rock-n-roll and in between.
There's a lady named 'Siri,' you can ask any question your mind can conjure up, or for directions to anywhere in the world and she will direct you there since the iPhone knows your coordinates of longitude and latitude. I can video chat with any other person with an iPhone, Skype or Facetime on Facebook.

I did not even have to type this blog, I dictated it to the the iPhone. The only mistake Siri made in typing was calling dictation, "Dick Tation!."
And that could had been my fault for improper pronunciation.
I am waiting for when an app is invented where we can teleport ourselves to anywhere in the world. I am sure that time is coming.
You can also ask Siri fun questions when you are bored. I once asked Siri if she would would marry me. Her reply was, "I sure have gotten a lot of marriage proposals lately, I'm sorry, I am not human so I must decline.
Cousin Ron, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing me up-to-date in technology and for your friendship and love, all of which I've missed for so many years.
