G.a.G.D. 8-31-12



Let us declare August 31, 2012 "Get a grip day" and turn off all media for 24 hours so we can get a grip on reality and listen to our own thoughts for a change. 

GaGD pronounced gagged:)

Pledge to turn off TVs, Radios, Computers on 8-31-12 for 24 hours and exercise your brain and your body.  It could prove refreshing especially before we move into all the hot and heavy political hype going into November.

  7. Wouldn't it be interesting to see what it would do to the journalists if for one day a large number of us were able to live without them. They might see that we can't really believe half of what they tell us and decide to be more reputable in their reporting.

  11. That's happened to me involuntarily several times after hurricanes here... for days on end! Not fun when you're by yourself with no communications.

    That'll be a friday n I'll be at work anyhow- where there's no radio, tv, or phones allowed btw- (Yes I do that every workday)

  12. Turn off all media? Gosh... that would be so hard. We can try though. How could I get away from my cellphone? How could I get away from my computer? Ack!

  13. I have no problem with TV and radio. I go for weeks without watching/listening. I miss whole controversies, which is good because most of them are of the tempest-in-a-teapot variety. But don't make me give up my computer. . . .

  14. Cliff -- Okay, you set your smartphone to remind you then you can remind Lynn.

    Lynn -- Cliff will remind you if I don't:)

    Pat -- I've already suggested setting your DVR for the Olympic events. Will they still be going on August 31st?

    Snaggle Tooth -- But you won't be at work for 24 hours will you?

    Kay -- I know. The computer is the difficult thing for me.

    Susan Adcox -- Not even for just one day?? I know, the computer is the hardest for all of us.
