Ok, gang. I have joined Facebook. This friend I lost track of talked me into joining. So, I have started my farm too. I don't know quite what I am doing yet, but I am working on it. You guys need to let me know how to reach you so we can send each other easter eggs. Yes, I need some eggs from my friends. Preferably non-broken and not thrown at me. PM me and let me know.

    For your own safety, you may want to remove your e-mail from the post & pm people with it . . . Hope you don't get a bunch of crazies friending you--just US crazies!

    Good!
    Glad you're taking good care of yourself! I sent you a friend request, though I don't play the games!

    Hugs! Sandy

    You should have several new friends now! :)
    I sent a bunch of our Warrior Sisters suggestions to friend you on Facebook, so have fun!

    I love using both ways of keeping in touch and supporting each other.

    FB????
    I still don't "get" FB! It just overwhelms me, and I keep thinking I am already in touch with everyone I love, so why do I need/want FB? I do check in every 4-5 weeks, and find I have over 100 requests....I instantly back right out of facebook again! I don't know what the Farm thing is, and I don't know why we need coins for some things, and to be honest, I don't generally care if my 20-something niece is bored with March Madness, or ate spaghetti at so and so's house, or is cooking at a cyber cafe! I know, I know, it's just ME~ evidently I am one of the extreme few who doesn't understand the appeal of FB! My sister will IM me and ask if I saw the picture that her husband found and posted on someone's page...uh NO!

    That being said, Enjoy the connection on FB~ If you have started a farm, you are already light-years ahead of me! LOL

    Hugs,
    Chen♥

    PS...I get friend requests on Yahoo~ I don't recognize 99% of the names! I am not sure if they are people who are friends of other people and are just expanding their lists ( truly, who has 600+ friends, anyway???) or if they are Kindred Spirits from the boards and I just don't know them by anything other than their CSN usernames! :-) So...I ignore them! Bad on me! LOL

    Chen, I can certainly
    Chen, I can certainly understand your delima. I joined Facebook while trying to locate my nephew's whom I had lost contact with since my sister's death. I was successful in finding them, but, like you, I am completely overwhelmed with all that goes on in that site. One good thing.....I have been "friended" by most of my family members, including grandchildren, and I can go in and read their postings in order to keep up with them. I usually don't post to their postings, as this is my way of keeping up with them without seeming nosey. They don't realize that I do read their posts, and sometimes I wish I hadn't gained the knowledge of what they are up to on a daily basis. It is fun, but you really have to be a computer whizz in order to keep up. I think you are wise to be a part of the system, but for me, I am an "observer" rather than a "participant". As far as Farmville...I wish I had the time to be a part of that, but sometimes the desperation I hear from those who are trying to keep their farm running makes even me anxious. I will leave the farming to others, and just enjoy their fruits and veggies quietly purchased at my local grocery. Have fun with FB all. Hugs. Judy

    You are not alone. I'm not
    You are not alone. I'm not on facebook either. It would freak me out. I guess this message board has to be my 'facebook'. I can't handle the friends list on here so I ignore it and figure anyone wants to can PM me anyway. Maybe we can start Overwhelms Anonymous. Who wants to join? :>)

    P.S. Because it's anonymous you don't sign up, no one knows who is a member or not and we are invisible.
