Things Kids Today Never Have To Worry About

Some adults look back at the "good old days" and complain that kids today are missing out on some good stuff.

That might be true.

But, because of modern technology, there's also a lot of stress and worry that kids today don't have to deal with, including:

    Typing Complete Words -- If your kid is texting, you know that EVERYTHING is abbreviated. For example, why type, "love you" when you can just hit "LY"?

    Missing TV Shows -- Kids today never have to go through the torture of missing their favorite TV show. DVRs and Hulu have made watching TV live a thing of the past.

    Paying for Music -- In the past decade CDs have become obsolete. Can you imagine there used to be music STORES?

    Spelling Words Correctly -- Spell check might have put some English teachers out of business.

    Forgetting a Camera -- When was the last time you carried around a 2nd device for taking pictures? Because of all the advances in camera phone technology, point and shoots just aren't as important as they used to be.

A Few of My Favorite Things

This is one of my favorite times of the year in Austin!!  SXSW and Rodeo Austin are here, the weather is warming up and the wildflowers are starting to bloom!!  Here are  a few more of my favorite things this week!!

I had the chance to see the new movie "Bernie" starring Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey (his mom makes an appearance too!)  and Shirley McClain.  I caught a preview at The Violet Crown Cinema as part of SXSW.  This is a very funny movie, that is full of surprises.  It was filmed right here in Austin, and some of the scenes were filmed right across the street at Westlake High School.
You will love Berine!!

One of out Majic in the Morning Listeners, Roz  from the Dessert Cart heard I love Snickerdoodle cookies and dropped some off at the station on Friday!!  They are so delicious.  Thanks Roz!!

As you know I love seeing the sunrise over Austin.  This winter has provided so many beautiful ones!
Here is my favorite from last week!!

These are the wildflowers I see everyday when I leave work!!  They already look so pretty!
