  • My eight year old grandson was concentrating for two hours on a computer game.

    "Tell me about the game."

    "Its Minecraft-you have to dig mines and if you don't succeed you get blown up."

    "Have you been blown up?"

    "Yes but it doesn't matter if you are in creative mode."

    "Oh that's good."

    " Yes, I'm designing a mansion that is 90 stories high."
