Ignore This

This is a mobile blog test. If this was a real blog post you would have been instructed where to go for further information.

Sometimes Facebook Can Be A Bit Much

I think there maybe, might be just a few too many Facebook apps out there. I have 119 friends on Facebook which by some standards really isn't that many but take a look at how many current requests I have.

There are about 100 requests there! I only use a few of those applications because if I worked on accepting all of them, I'd be lost in Facebook Hell for at least a week. By accepting all those requests, I would probably be encouraging even more requests and adding even more applications to my Facebook page. I don't think it would ever end.

Now, if I could get paid by the hour to update my Facebook page and accept requests, I'd be all for it. Not meaning to slam any one, I think that a lot of brain power goes into creating these and I do think it's sweet that people think of me this often but honestly, isn't this getting a little out of hand?

Facebook is about to get put onto my top ten list of time wasters for this. Any body have a request list bigger than this? How much time have you spent on Facebook accepting or sending requests?

Tell Me Thursday

Yesterday was my first Wordless Wednesday Post. It's easy to participate, just create a post on Wednesday's of a picture.

Tell Me Thursday is where we get to talk about our Wordless Wednesday Post.

So, here it is. Yesterday's picture is one of me (one the right) with my older brother Tommy on Christmas morning. I love this picture. It's classic 50's - 60's Christmas. One of the strongest memories I have from Christmas as a child are the mixed smells of plastic and pine. As the years moved on, my parents produced even more kids (6 in all) that really created a strong scent of plastic on Christmas morning what with all those toys.

I miss those oversized tree lights and the glow they created. I also miss the tinsel. I think the next time I have a tree, I'm going to go "Old School."

Oh, like the obligatory cowboy hat my brother is wearing?

6 of 6 Meme

There is a little meme floating around the blogosphere. For my readers who don't know what a meme is, from Wikipedia: The term Internet meme (pronounced /miːm/) is a neologism used to describe a catchphrase or concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the Internet, much like an inside joke.[1] The term is a reference to the concept of memes, although this concept refers to a much broader category of cultural information.

This particular meme I call 6 of 6. Find the 6th picture in the 6th file on your computer and post it. Here is mine.

It's a picture of the floor I helped my friend Kenny refinish last summer. I love hardwood floors. I especially like the patterns that the grain makes.

I like wood floors that creak a little and can't understand why people go to such pains to silence the creaks and squeaks in an older home.

I have hard wood floors and I can tell the difference between the cats and dogs foot steps on the floors and stairs at night. I can tell which dog is sneaking through the house or which cat is coming up the stairs at night to climb into bed with me just from the particular creak on the floors and stairs. Most of all, I love the feel of wood floors on my bare feet.
