I dunno if this is some statement on my current outlook on life or not, but I've been on Facebook a lot of late. I have neglected my blog.
Part of that is due to the easy software that FB has that allows me to just "share on facebook" what I find around the web..it posts and adds a link, *and* let's me make a comment. No need for me to have to do html code, or download photos to my /images directory, or copy and paste and embed code for video posting, or audio .. just PFM!
I also get to find a lot of long lost people with a simple search, or they find me.
And, the privacy settings allow me to send messages instead of email, as private conversations. How kewl, er lazy is that? But I like it.
I dunno, but I may be going to the "dark" side after all, and continue to post to my blog less and less. Is this the equivalent of going to Kindle v. book?
So, for those of you who care, or follow my blog at all and want to know what goes on in my life, or what I've been posting and talking about, feel free to ask me to add you as a "friend".
Click on this link, and then make sure you send a message of "blog follower" as you "request" me to add you as a friend. I'll do it if you want.
Else, I'll see you next blog entry!
PS Did I mention the addictive games???

Although Tim Burton is not my favorite film director, he has a certain je ne sais quoi. To that end, I'm very intrigued by this photo of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in the spring 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland as shown here -- this is fabulous (but so is Johnny D):

I just fired off a care package to our SIL, William Valdez via Treats for Troops. He's married to Jenny, and is Robyn and Evan's treasured of a Dad.
While he's gone, Katie and Mike will be moving to CO., and Katie will be helping Jenny out with the kids while Jenny works full time.
She and Mike came over for waffles and strawberry shortcake the other day, and I must admit that I got all "leaky-eyed". I'll miss them horribly. Everyone seems to be leaving - the separation anxiety is nasty! We should get another bit o' time with them on Wednesday if all goes as planned.
I'm happy for the kids and their kids, as this shoud be good for alluvem - but, selfishly, I want them all here on the Island! At least Robby is still on island, as is Megan...now if only we could get him to come visit....?!?
If any of you are looking to do a good deed, feel free to send a care package to William and his batallion in Afghanistan. TFT is going out of business, which is an awful shame.
I remember well when they were first starting up, before the TV exposure etc. Such kind folk, and such hard work to navigate the bureaucracy to get things to the troops. Their going belly up is so wrong on so many levels; Bah Humbug.
Nonetheless, there is still product and time, until the end of this month -- Take advantage if you can!!
William Valdez is our Son-in-Law Extrodinaire.
He's been to Iraq twice and currently is in Afghanistan.
You can support individuals and troops via the Treats for Troops foster program,
or, feel free to send a package to William directly, using his TFT ID 1912192
He shares with his Unit ;-)
Send love and light and prayers to William for us?
