    1. We’ll be there until the end of April – we’re thinking maybe seeing L.A, only because we’ll be there need the end of the trip so the season would have started. We’ve also got tix to the Spurs-Mavs game when we’re in San Antonio.. I’m not a fan of either team but it was the most convenient game to get to – I wanted to watch a game at MSG in NY, but the Knicks are really terrible at the moment (even more than Philly lol!)… so we settled on watching the NHL at MSG instead 🙂 It’s a busy 7 weeks we’ve got!!!!

      1. Oh Yeh! We have gone every winter since we moved here in 1999. Nothing like being out in the fresh air. Everyone is smiling.
        You must be a runner? 4min km – 5 times. I ran it once (not 5km but 1km) 🙂

    1. Thank you very much! I’m not big on stats as such but I love the idea that I’m connecting with new people every day 🙂 I just read your story about Roi, that was heartbreaking – I’ll be back on tonight to read some more and look into it all a bit further. Thank you for dropping by!

  1. I originally saw a post called “Let your imagination off the leash” but then once on your site the getting rid of facebook one caught my attention. Something I am looking to do myself. But I like your humour, and you seem to write well from the few posts Ive read. So 241/1000 now (unless that had not been updated in a while of course)

    1. I’m proud of the Facebook one… mainly because I’ve still stuck to it 5 months on! It’s very rewarding every time I hear someone mumble about something they saw on FB and how frustrated they get. One less thing in my life that agitates me 😉

      1. hehe indeed, and there are so many things that can potentially agitate. farcebook is certainly one of the worse sites out there I think, i am there rarely and even more rarely put anything personal on it.

  2. The ONE thing I really like about Facebook is how easy it makes keeping in touch with friends, especially friends who like me avoid talking on the telephone when possible. And, since most – make that all – of my friends are pet parents, our posts are usually uplifting posts about our pets. I un-followed all the news media and political pages because I was tired of all the hate and narcissism being spewed. And blocked every person who claimed I couldn’t possibly love my dogs as much as they love their human kids and tried to tell me I had no right to call myself a “parent” unless I had human children. For the most part, my own FB page is dog-centric and upbeat. 🐶🐶
