We dont have a landline, only cellphones, and we all screen our calls as to whether to answer or let them leave messages....
Last thing I researched was a new phone in particular, its not a blackberry but it seems interesting. And the best part...its not a touch screen.
Usually the calls I ignore are because of either my being at work or not being someplace where its easy to talk.
Many think Im from the east coast because of my accent but because of moving around so much in my lifetime, basically tell people I was born in Calif.

Merry Monday to allyall

I wish I could be a fly on the wall to monitor by son.

If someone asks me where I am from it depends on the context...

I research...

We have phones...

U can show someone you love them better than you can tell 'em.

Love and Peace
