Today's Family And Technology


Most families utilize some sort of technology in their homes. Children of younger and younger ages are carrying around tablets and smartphones. While to some people this may look bad, it's actually a good thing. With technology comes more learning and more connection.
If you stop and take a moment to look into a household you may actually be amazed at all the things the family does with their devices of choice. From staying in touch with distant relatives to order take-out, there is almost no limit to what you can do with television and internet.

A Look At Mom And Technology
Both moms and dads can use technology to keep up with what their children are doing, in many ways. If you have a teen or preteen that is online, you can set up keystroke loggers to keep an eye on who they are talking to and what they are doing online, for their own safety.
Mom probably doesn't spend all of her time online spying on the kids though. She may be using the computer to work from home, she could also be using her tablet in the kitchen to look up the latest recipe she pinned on Pinterest to make a fun new dessert for dinner tonight.

Moms may also spend some time shopping online. She may still spend time watching QVC and ordering the latest fun gadgets from infomercials, but now the internet has opened up a whole new world of shopping delights, and a good mom is sure to take advantage of online deals.

A Look At Kids And Technology
What children so on line can differ between sexes and ages. Older kids may spend their time online talking to friends. If they aren't glued to a laptop talking on Facebook then they are probably glued to their smartphones texting. Some of them Skype, some of them SnapChat.
Both boys and girls enjoy gaming online, and they may prefer online gaming to something like a Playstation. Of course, they need to have that too because it's cool. Most gaming system can go online now as well.
Kids of all ages can spend time online learning or enjoying their friends on social media, but there are also dangers online. That's why it is important for parents to monitor their children's online time, no matter their age.

A Look At Dad And Technology
It's likely dad spends most of his time looking up do it yourself home repair projects online, or maybe watching sports on TV. A father that is a real sports buff is probably happier with a big screen TV and a great surround sound system than worrying about what is on the internet.
Of course, he needs a great TV provider, like number one ranked DirecTV Satellite TV. They have fast service, no interruptions, and no way can dad live without NFL Sunday Ticket! Plus, with good service, dad can watch sports on the go, too. 

Not all dads are into sports, but a good TV service means other great channels, like military, history and more. Technology doesn't just help each member of the family do the individual things they love, it also helps them keep in contact with each other. Who hasn't had their child text them from another room in the house?

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
