Just When I Thought I Was Out

Day Four, Sans Twitter

Today is day four sans Twitter. Do I miss it? Yes. Presently, as in right at this moment, very much. I was just listening to a great, old, song, and the urge was to post it up, share the cool jam. I miss things like that. Not being […]

The Zombies, She’s Not There

If you’re looking for me on facebook, I am not there. I took my leave of it a couple of days ago. I will say this, it’s a kind of odd… feeling? I was a participant on facebook for seven years, that’s quite a chunk of time to […]

Social Media, Part 2

Briefly, because I’m very busy at present, an update on social media usage. Having read several other articles on the various aspects, goings on, what have you, “practices”, with regard to facebook in recent years, I’ve resolved to maintain my facebook page, however I will be utilizing the […]
