Picture Of The Day 04/12/11

Gas prices are getting too damn high!

I Sponsored A Child

One of my Pet Peeves on Facebook is people that post about bad/sad things like cancer, homeless people, kids without food, and then they ask others to post it on their status too. And it's always prefixed by something like "Only my real friends will post this...". It just bugs me.

Why? It does no good as far as I can see, 100 of your friends seeing the same sad message will really do nothing. So, instead of that type of status message do something that can make a difference. Write to your congressman, donate to the American Cancer Society, sponsor a needy child. Post about that and then invite others to do the same. I think at the very least suffix such a message with an applicable place to do something to help, such as link to the donations page for the American Cancer Society.

Today, for about $1 a day, I sponsored a needy child. That dollar a day will help feed and clothe her, provide medicine, education, and more.

I sponsored through ChildFund International. You can visit their web site here. Consider doing doing some real good with that pocket change you've got lying about. Sponsor a child, and then post about that on your Facebook status or blog, inviting your friends and visitors to do the same thing.

OK, I am now climbing down off of my soapbox!

Still Lazy After All These Years

For those wondering if I am still around, I am. Just not really been anything unique enough for me to post about. I often post small snippets of life here in the Midwest on my Facebook page, so, feel free to visit here and see, and feel free to friend me on Facebook.

Here on my blog I'll still be posting pictures and the occasional recipe, plus any earth shattering items, and I also do this on my Facebook page too, usually with a bit more frequency.

Facebook often gets a bad rep; people concerned with privacy and the like. If you only friend people you really know and set your privacy settings to only share with your direct friends, there's nothing to worry about. Feel free to visit my Facebook page and browse; I do have some public pictures and notes that you can view without joining Facebook.
