First Attempt

This will be my very first attempt at blogging so bare with me. First of all, <waves>, hello!

Today's random thoughts center around Facebook.  I would like to chat about my wonderful, crazy and might I add brilliant friends.  I so love my friends. I am not one of those people who friends every person on the planet to boost my friend count. I am very picky about who I "friend" and who I do not. My close knit community consists of a bunch of individual nutter butters (who is sane these days and who would want to be?). I love that they all have no fear of being who they are, that they are honest and true and  in the face of any tragedy would come to your aid in a heart beat. 

Facebook is a wonderful place to keep an eye on these crazy people.  Of course you have the normal posts of pictures of their babies, eating habits and general distaste of the world today.  However, there is always someone to brighten your day with a bit of humor. No, not the regurgitated nonsense that gets reposted over and over.  I am talking about peoples ability to find humor in the most mundane things and pass it on to brighten up everyone's day.  Bless them. 

Today's posts were a plethora of humor from one friend claiming to have THE new IPad which was a picture of a simple pad of paper and pen to another who wrote a very clever and funny blog of her own regarding her German Shepard who ate her truck/s (not the dogs fault an evil squirrel was behind it all!). True story. Honest. You can read it here.

In closing let me remind you to cherish those close to you. You never know when they will brighten your day and hopefully you can brighten theirs. Thank the social networking gods that bring us all a little closer each day and allow us to connect with freinds, old and new.


  1. Where's the part where we get to complain about Rich? ;)

  3. wow! first blog post AND a mention! thanks! I am glad that you count me as one of those lucky few, as I am a total friend whore and collect them like dropped pennies :)
