I send an email newsletter about once/month. Very short, local news, that sort of thing. Every Monday I get an updated subscriber list showing new subscribers and unsubscribes.

Who was in the unsubscribe category this morning? My mother.

Waited awhile, called her, cried, 'Mommmmmmmmmmm, how could you?' Dad in the background laughing, 'You're in trouble now!'

You know things are tough when your own mother unsubscribes.

Hey, at least your mom subscribed in the first place! My mom doesn't even read my blog.

My mom wouldn't read it if it didn't show up in her inbox! She will email me for recipes, tho.

Had a guest the other day who I had pulled up some info for on the blog. She's looking at it and saying, 'All of this is on your website??? How come I didn't know that?' Her husband says, 'I get the email, you want me to forward it to you?' No, she signed up on the spot.

the extent of my mum's knowledge of the internet is shown by the question she asked me last week "can you do internet things?" I think that about sums it up!

Last week my mother asked me how much one of those Facebooks costs, saying she'd heard about them on TV and is wanting to read what everybody is writing. Then she said she might buy a Twitter instead.

Put it on your 2102 resolution list (if you can still find a VCR around anywhere)...

Was that her way of geting a phone call? Figuring THAT would get your attention?

I call her every day, so no, that's not the reason!
