Everything seems faster today!  Take for instance your microwave oven. In just two minutes transform a can of cold Campbell's into a steaming hot and ready to eat meal. You can flip the remote and surf though 100 channels without leaving your recliner. In the old days, I swear that's what our parents had us kids for. Change the channel or turn that down! Another chore that used to take a lot of time, or at least caused a lot of stress was getting your drivers license renewed.

I recently noticed a card on our dining room table. I didn't realize that you can get your drivers license, updated on line and sent back to your house. Yep, a couple of clicks and upload a couple documents that prove you still live where you live and your updated drivers license comes in the mail in a couple of days.

I was talking with a co-worker and he said, In South Dakota it is actually pretty easy to navigate through the process. In other states, you need to practically set aside a day to take care of it. I know the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks has made leaps and bounds in the past few years making it much easier to get a license to go hunting.

Technology continues to change almost everything we do. Every day. How about you? Do you have a chore that used to take a long time, or you thought was a pain in the rump to do, that is easier today because of technology? If you do, let me know. Shoot me an email anytime jdcollins@kikn.com.

By the way, I think I'm going to try the on line application. The only drawback that I can see, is the creepy picture that I took last time I updated my drivers license will be there for a few more years.
