I've been on Facebook for some time now. Haven't used it much but did just today and accepted a couple of new friends. I think it's okay.

I've got a myspace page and an account at I like them enough to go there quite often. Have some relatives at each one.

I have so little time that I barely can stand it but Facebook entertains me early in the morning. I get up just so I can check the news, weather and my Facebook online. It's new and fun for me but then, I do love my computer! If anyone cares to look me up, PM me here and I'll give you the info!

Ladyjane, I got back on Facebook this morning. I realized that all of the crap I didn't like was coming from one "friend". I don't really know her and don't remember how we initially connected - maybe she was my avon lady at one time? Anyway, she sends me lots of crap. I remember having to ask her about two years ago to stop sending raunchy stuff because I wanted my page to be family-friendly.

Anyway, this morning I deleted her as a friend. Why didn't I think of that before??? Duh.

Anyway, I only have three friends. I have no idea what to do there. If anyone wants to connect and 'be my friend', let me know. LOL. I feel like the new kid in school again.

I'm on Facebook. I quit doing all the little 'extras' when they became overwhelming. I don't poke anyone or give them flowers. *grin*

Here's the link (I think...):

Mention Boomer Women so I'll know who you are please. I keep saying I'm going to learn to use it since a lot of people rave about it.

Donna, don't be taken in by JJ's compliments. She's just trying to get on your good side so you'll clean the moat next time she goes to Tunica to gamble! smile

I´ve been on facebook for awhile too..and yes, I is due to my daughter and her family in the US...and now my younger son,too. IS a good way to keep in can reach quite a few family members and friends easily all at to speak..because your mutual friends can see what´s on your facebook..

And the fotos..that´s the best part of all..if your family is kind of scattered to the 4 winds.

I can recommend anyone to at least check it´s fun. And then you have to learn that YOU are the master of your IT time..and not the other way around... grin

i have to try my space and bebo lol i on bebo but not done anything about it.

i like the idea of blogging like ann i sure i get to it one day lol.
