"Face Book Friend" What is it??

Ok, so Face Book. We all connect to be out there and meet up with "friends" but what is a "Face Book Friend" to you??

For my author account I have it open to the public. Anyone over the age of 18 can be my friend if they ask, and yes, I do go to their page to "try" and make sure they are 18+. Not that it works all the time because you can only go by what the person has put on their page. Most of my posts are tame although I am an Erotic Romance Author. :-)

Now my personal page is a different matter altogether. I don't allow anyone I don't personally know or want to know my business on as a friend. I love liking or posting to friends comments that I went to high school with and haven't seen in years. Face Book is a great tool to keep people in touch. But just because they may be the friend of my niece, doesn't mean I'm going to friend them if they ask. Nope, I turn them away. If I don't know you or was friendly with you before, why would I friend you? You have no business in my personal stuff. Not that I post wildly about my life (because I don't) LOL.

I'll even un-friend friends and family if they aren't active. Why are you on my friends list, if you aren't going to be friendly?? 

Now, I know I have several that are just not computer people and if they get on their accounts once every three to six months you're lucky, and I pretty much know who they are and they can stay.

But when you friend me and don't bother replying to my posts on my page or the ones I post on yours...again, why did you friend me?
I'll let it go for about six months and then if there is still no activity, family or not ...You're Gone.
Have I really done this you ask, have I un-friended family members?? 
                     Answer ...Why yes I have.  

 And if someone starts getting negative all the time or nasty (That hasn't happened yet) I'll un-friend them. I don't allow negativity or drama in my life and will get rid of any form of it. Family or not, friend or not. It's not worth my peace, to listen (or read) someone being negative about everything or causing so much drama in their own life it tries to ooze into everyone elses.

So what is a "Face Book Friend" to you?? Do you allow just anyone on, just because or are you mindful of your friends?

Do you have seperate accounts for personal in circle family and friends and one to just roam the "Face Book" people lists and invite people you think are "interesting"?? 

Well what ever you have, good for you, It's your decision and if it works for you then hey, you're an adult. ;-p

Happy Reading to all you awesomes out there and have a great Sunday!!

Ah yes, it's that time of year again, where we sit down eat lots and then try to diet it off, before the Christmas feast. LOL.

Growing up in Massachusetts, my grandfather owned a farm and we  had wild turkeys that lived there and let me tell you, my grandfather made it known to everyone that those turkey's were not to be touched! So as I grew the flock grew and that Tom would strut around like he owned the place. Talk about sanctuary, he knew he was safe LOL.

The one thing I do miss about not being up in New England anymore are the Fall changes. The leaves especially.
  There's nothing like the colors in a New England Autumn. I miss those days, but wouldn't move back to TON of snow country unless I had to, LOL.

My plans for Thanksgiving, eating lots and spending time with awesome family and friends!! 

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!!!!

Fall / Florida??

Yes, Winter in Florida, although you kinda have to say it like Dr. Who did in the recent episode of ' Dinosaurs--on a spaceship' sort of like, it's here and it's really happening LOL. 

So I just had to put the Dr. Who trailer in, so you  could see what I'm talking about LOL. (he says it near the end of the trailer)

The weather's been really nice lately, down in the 50's at night and 70's during the day with a slight cool breeze. Ya, you know...T-shit weather :-) Now I'm guessing we'll probably be in for a harder winter than last year. Maybe a few more nights of freeze warnings and 28 degrees than last year, and I'll have to dress in layers LOL. OK! I'm ready!! Where are my socks? ;-) hehehehe.

Although I've been  here for, geeze 8 or maybe 9 years now, I just can't seem to become acclimated to Florida summers. they are just to hot for this northern girl. Thank you for A/C!!

I know my friends and family up north have already seen snow falling and kudo's to them for shoveling the snow LOL, that's something I'd just rather not do anymore.

So I guess if we lose all electricity across the globe for some reason or another, you know aliens or what not, I'm hiking my butt up to a decent weather state. You know some where not to cold in the winter and not to hot in the there such a place?? Guess I'll have to start looking ;-)

Hope everyone stays warm where ever you are this Fall/Winter season!!

Take care and read lots!!

Time Change

Do we really need it?? Who cares if it gets dark earlier, that's what happens when we go into winter. But did the one's who came up with this really need to do an hour back for fall and an hour back again for Spring?? Just to get us that 'extra' hour of day light? I know  some theories out there say that if we don't it will toss the season's or something out of balance in years to come. Really...They did just fine before the time change started.

Why you ask, why did she blog about time change--

Well, I'll tell you--

That little love of mine...Elvis (my one year old dachshund) doesn't understand time change or turning back the clock an hour that would (underline would) have given mommy (that's me) an extra hour of sleep. So he's up an rearing to go at our normal or would have been our normal hour.
So, I have to agree with Elvis. Time change is a waste of time, for now I have to go reset all the clocks and my extra hour was shot to the moon and then I lose it in the Spring, just when I'm getting used to it and have to reset the clocks all over again and I still get woken up an hour early. Grrrrr Arrrggg.

I guess the only good thing out of it is I'm up, so more writing can occur :-)

Happy Sunday all and keep reading!!
