Worried and concerned but excited with anticipation at the same time.  I don't know about you, but I'm happy to be alive in 2017.


The new year brings new beginnings and hope for the future.  I try to keep my life as simple and uncomplicated as possible so I'm not expecting any major changes but life, itself, seems to bring them anyway.


Think about it  - where were you, where were WE 20 years ago?  Well, most of us had yet to get a personal cell phone, Facebook was still 8 years away and most of us still had 26 inch television screens built into wooden and plastic cabinets.


These days, many of us have given up our old land line telephones, we stay in touch with family and friends on Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat and a 42 inch TV screen seems small.


I can't really imagine a world without cell phones, social media and flat screen televisions with high definition.  Can you?
