For some strange reason…I say that…and…then I think…most of my reasons are strange…or…at least a little odd…but…I digress…for some reason…I asked myself the question…if you could take one thing with you to a deserted island…what would it be

My mind was immediately flooded with a myriad of ideas…and…yes…George Clooney…did float through there…but…the one thing that I settled on…was…drumroll please…Google

Those of you who know me…know that I spend a lot of time Googling…when I was diagnosed with Chiari I Malformation…I Googled…to the point that now if I type in ‘Ch’…Google automatically offers me Chiari…it’s smart like that…when I needed to know how to prune my hydrangeas…I Googled…and stopped before I cut off all the buds for the next year…when I had an enlarged lymph node…I Googled…

Well…you get the picture…Google provides me with information…at my fingertips…whenever I need it…it doesn’t sleep…it doesn’t get grumpy…it doesn’t seem to mind when I ask the same questions over and over again…it doesn’t get too tired…doesn’t have a headache…and…it doesn’t take offense at morning breath…or no make-up…

All of which makes it the perfect candidate for my island experience…or at least I thought it did…just to make sure…I Googled…yeah…I’m sure you saw that one coming…how to survive on a deserted island…there were 431,000 entries…

I checked out a few…and…found out some interesting things…like the first thing you should do is to look for water…not Twinkies…as I might have imagined…it seems the body can go indefinitely without Twinkies…not so without water…there were even articles about how to make safe drinking water…how to get the salt out if ocean water was the only choice…even how to get water out of a tree…I bet that cute as he is…George wouldn’t have known all that

There was information on building a shelter…and what to eat…I didn’t like the bug option…but…it was offered as a significant source of readily available protein…

There are over 51 million entries on how to build a fire without matches…everything I need…

I could go on and on…but it’s like…Bertha…says…you don’t have to know everything…you just have to know how to find it out…when you need it…

So…here it is…I love it…Google…I’m never leaving home without it…I never know when that trip to the grocery store…could land me on a deserted island…

Sorry…George…
