mlboose@norwalkreflector.com Move over, thin mints. When Girl Scouts hit the sidewalks today they'll have a new cookie to sell Cinna-Spins with only 100 calories per pack. Of course, the Scouts will also have the popular mints, the best selling variety for years. Caramel Delites, Peanut Butter Patties and four other varieties they have sold for years also are still available. Cathy Robustellini, leader of troop 555, said cookie sales help her troop with both fun learning activities and in community service. Troop 555 was the top selling group in Norwalk last year with the 18 girls selling 291 cases or almost 3,500 boxes of cookies.

We've gone wireless! It seems we are always behind other families when it comes to the latest technology. I remember being so excited when my brother-in-law in Nebraska gave us his old Apple IIE computer when he upgraded his. It was my first computer. It was not connected to the Internet, but it had programs for the children like "Sticky Bear Math' and it had a printer and a word processing program so I could delete and add words easily as I typed my column and then brought the printout to the Reflector newsroom, where it would have to be re-typed. That was many years ago.
