The Earth Shook, Just a Little Bit

Well, its official. My mother is now on the internet.

Yup, my mom, who is in her 70's, has taken an interest to tackle the intricacies and mysteries of the interweb, the "double-you, double-you, double you, dot", the great super-highway of information dotted with prattfalls and dark holes.

She got her first e-mails and replied to a few today, and even made her way to a web page on the Atkins diet using Google.

Gotta love it. This is a huge step for her, I gotta tell ya. For years, the internet was a giant mystery, and she wanted nothing to do with it. I guess all us kids talking to her about sending e-mails back and forth, web-pages, blogs and journals, broke down the uncertainty and has brought her smack-dab into the 21st century.

She even has DSL!!!

So, mom, my hat's off to you for trying something new and mysterious!
