At the Register: How to Semi-Unplug

My kids are still not on vacation yet, can you believe it?  But when they finally are, I have plans to make sure the TV and computer screens don’t swallow them whole this summer.  (That is a link to my post on The Register, where I blog three times a week.  Starting in July, I’ll be dropping down to twice a week.  I’ll post all the links to this blog.)

Oh, and if you do struggle with wasting time staring at a screen, Uncle Screwtape (quoted in my Register post) has got your number.  I’m rereading The Screwtape Letters now.

 

If you’ve never read this screamingly original classic by C.S. Lewis, you’re in for a horrible, horrible treat.  Never since Wile E. Coyote put up an umbrella to shade him from an avalanche has has soul-searing insight been so entertaining.

    The audio book of Screwtape by John Cleese is brilliant–as they say in England.

    If you get a chance to see this–and you will because it travels just about everywhere–don’t miss it:

    Even more exciting–the Max McLean is preparing a stageplay of The Great Divorce that will begin performances in 2014!

    I must be the only person in the world who didn’t think The Screwtape Letters were great. After the first couple of letters, the pattern was set and it became repetative for me.
