Without even trying, families share similarities in appearance and in actions. Who would have ever expected this… The "Final Four" (Mom, Dad, Dan and Ben) had a wonderful weekend exploring
I have worked for telecom companies for over 10 years. Telecom has been explained to me on fancy power point presentations and on bar napkins, but it is still a mystery to me. I pick up the phone and instantaneously, I hear a voice from thousands of miles away. The speed of sound is approx 768 miles per hour -- that rule obviously doesn’t apply. I have been told that voice (on a phone call) travels at the speed of light (which is 186,000 miles per second) because that “sound” has been converted to something electrical. OK – I guess that does makes sense… Sound becomes electricity but still sounds like sound on the other end. Mysterious! In addition to how fast it moves, every time that little electrical packet of sound crosses from one telecoms network to another – an imprint/record is made. We telecom-ers make money by billing other telecoms or customers for the calls that originate, terminate or transit our networks. Making all those records doesn’t even slow it down. I am a huge fan of phone calls because it pays the bills and it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when I hear voices of those I love. But it is CRAZY… I still believe it is mainly magic.
