A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

60 Minutes

The iconic TV magazine show conjures up memories of my aunts and uncles and parents tuning into this Sunday evening show that could not be missed. Before the Internet and instantaneous news, this one news program highlighted the "current" news of people, places and things of the day that we take for granted in today's fast paced world. 

Tonight I caught a segment on robots and robotics. Very interesting and I hope they will not put everyone out of a job eventually!  There is one robot, Baxter, who is on the market for a mere $22,000 that lasts about three years. A quick calculation renders this robot "makes" $3.40/hour. Baxter earns pretty much the same wages as China and India's workers and that may put a lot of those folks on notice!

BSoleille!  The bright side of a robot, but still keeping person to person relationships, in and out of the workplace.
