Jeanne; To avoid this trap the first thing I asked myself was how much of this cr*p do I really need and how much is just placating a need for "keeping up". I value my privacy so I don't let people in general know that I have a cell phone, although I have had one practically since they were invented. That also wipes out the need for a Facebook page since my social "dance card" is totally filled without (it). I manage my activities so that I spend more time reading than I do on the computer although I sometimes spend an inordinate amount of time in researching a subject. So Jeannie, the bottom line is how much quality time are you spending in the "snake pit" that you have created and is it worth it?
