YAFB – Yet Another Facebook Break

I am taking yet another Facebook break. I have discovered its hard to be yourself there and control who sees what you want to keep private. Yes, I know my blog is open for all to see but the one thing about my blog is that I pay for domain registration and the premium package through WordPress.com. It is important that I have total control over what I say, my content and even who sees these words.

My connections on Twitter and Instagram will not change. You can connect with both through the widgets on the right. Connect with me if you wish there.

Six Shows, Old And New

This is a fun thing happening on Twitter, name six television shows (I guess you could do movies too) new and old. Usually its 3 new and 3 old. I challenge you all to do the same.

Here are my six shows old & new

  1. Dragnet – old
  2. Battlestar Galactica – old
  3. Saved By The Bell – old
  4. Murdoch Mysteries – new
  5. Survivor – new
  6. Call The Midwife – new

To All My Followers

Friends, I realize we won’t agree on everything and that is cool. If you find anything I say offensive please let me know. This is my blog and I have invested money in it so I get to say what I want. Of course my posts come from a place of respect especially for people on the fringes who need someone to speak for them.

If you don’t like what I have to say you may unfollow me and I will not take it personally. I hope that what I have to say is met with equal respect and thoughtful commentary and feedback that isn’t personally hurtful. There is no reason to go there.

Thank you for following me and I welcome my newest followers from the past couple of weeks. I appreciate you.

A Ramble About Mental Health

A group from my church are exploring mental health and supporting one another in those situations where life gets too much. Having resources and compassion can help a great deal. Across the blogosphere much is written about the subject and I will admit I don’t know it all but from my experience admitting you have a problem, getting help and even medication can help you through the tough times.

Personally I am dealing with depression so I am coping the best I can. There is way more to it I know but you know support and understanding is important. Bring those into the fold who suffer and make time to help and get help. This is the first I will post on this issue as I learn much more.

Thought Of The Day

I don’t know how we keep up with our lives online because all the usernames and passwords to remember. Just think of all the apps on your phone and sites on your laptop/tablet that must have login information to provide. When you migrate to a new device you have to recall all that information to be able to use those services. Yes there are password managers and the like but you know those require usernames and passwords too. I am sure you have the same experiences too. Frustrating, oh yes.
