Question of the Week: Do you still have a land line?

Do you still use a land line in your house? That's the burning question this week. My family does, but I'm not so sure we need it any longer. It seems that everyone calls us on our cell phones. Our land line is part of a bundle with the TV cable and internet, so it may actually cost us more to cancel than to keep it. I've recently started forwarding calls from the land line to one of our cell phones most of the time so I only have to carry one phone around the house instead of two.

Along with that question, I would also like to ask - have you ever had a land line? I realize that most of the younger generation may have had one when they lived with their parents, but they are satisfied using their cell phones as their only communication device once they move into their own apartment or house. And I think 9-1-1 call locations can be detected more easily with cell phones these days, which makes the land line less necessary.

So, that's where my curiosity led me this week. Do you have a cell phone only, or do you have both a land line and a cell phone? Feel free to share in the comment section below.

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
