    1) I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I used to, before the Web.
    2) I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.
    3) I will get dressed before noon.
    4) I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of the Web.
    5) I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Web-deprived.
    6) I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Web.
    7) I will read a book...if I still remember how.
    8) I will listen to those around me and their needs and stop telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the music on the Web.
    9) I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.
    10) I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.
    11) I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Web.
    12) Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime ... and the Web will always be there tomorrow!

    I wonder if BIG BROTHER knows it's that addictive? If so, he may try to outlaw it and claim it's bad for your health.-hpg;P
