My last posting was in July  2010. I think that was around the time I joined facebook. Much has changed in LJ since then. I was shocked by the heavy ads in the front page. But I managed to remember my userid and password!  Who are here still, and big hugs!

Selene and I spent 10 minutes outside to quietly celebrate the new year - winter solstice. It is so good to have our days grow longer, and for our house, it is good to see the sun arcing higher in the sky to lift out of the treeline and to shine brightly on the power panels. 

It is also Selene's birthday the 22nd - happy birthday my love!!

Rene,
I was following your Facebook page, but it disappeared a few months ago. Is it safe to assume you finally hit the "Eject" button on FB?

no moe FB
(sorry about the long delay)

Yes, Facebook crossed a line I could no longer ignore, so I deleted my entire account. It was tough to lose contact with my friends, but I was doing them a disservice participating in the data mining FB does. Once they started using my profile photo in their adverts with quotes not mine, I was done with them.

I drifted to Twitter, and that's OK, though painfully brief messages. I finally found https://sgrouples.com which looks to be a Facebook alternative but with strong privacy and respect for user content.
