Visiting online...

I find myself spending more and more time catching up on online friends!

Today I've visited Paperback Swap and found a "sticky post" (a post that stays at the top of the list all the time) on the messageboard called "Lester: Our Mark Twain". This was posted a year ago, but I didn't see it because I don't usually visit this particular forum because it contains lots of heated discussions about spirituality and politics that I really don't want to get embroiled in. But Lester apparently passed away from a stroke (he was in his early 80's) shortly after the post was made and one PBS member had copied all of his forum posts so everyone could read them. I personally just loved this man. He was very wise and gentle and was indeed "our Mark Twain". He, like all PBSers, was passionate about reading and loved to visit on the forums. After copying the post to my Word Pad I hit print preview and saw that there were 57 pages!! I haven't begun to read them yet, but I certainly will and I will print it out to keep. Lots of wisdom contained in those pages.

I also visit with my girl pals at Jody's Home-Made Living. Jody is a homeschooling mom from Montana who lives on a working ranch with her family. I've been a member of this messageboard for about nine years, taking a little time off now and then, but I've really enjoyed talking with these ladies over the years.

Then gotta go to Facebook and catch up on what all my kids are chatting about. Never thought I'd join Facebook, but I found out it's a great place to hear news from the family that I might miss out on otherwise. I also found an old high school girlfriend and we're getting reacquainted, which is lots of fun!

If that isn't enough yacking for me I can always come here and talk to myself as long as I want to! LOL!

I also have a You Tube channel where I collect favorite music videos and guitar tutorial videos. I don't visit there except for the occasional comment to someone whose video I appreciate, but it's a great resource for finding worship music, celtic music and lots of other stuff! EVERYTHING is on YouTube! Lisa's You Tube Channel

Bob's gone to Fargo for the day. I'm here keeping the woodstove hot and making a beef stew in the crockpot. Maybe some biscuits would be good with that. Hmmm...

It's snowy outside and I'm off to tend the stew, finish creating a quiz for Facebook and maybe read a good book.

  1. I never thought I'd join Facebook either! I just joined a couple weeks ago to see what all the fuss was about. I've picked up a few friends and made some reaquaintances. I think I'll stick to blogging!
