Facebook Help

I started using Facebook again. I know… bad idea. I am trying not to “care” about all the stupid shit I see on there. It isn’t really hard to ignore Facebook for me because I’ve never been in love with that platform.

Betsy is a character that has been with me for a long time. Over the years, she changed, developed, and grew along with my daughters and my oldest granddaughters, before finally coming into her own.  She, now, has her own coming of age problems to face, adventures to explore, and plenty of romance to discover!… Read More »

WordPress – Blogging Alone

There are times when I consider forming a “team” on this blog. Most of the popular blogs with high traffic have a group of contributors to keep their material fresh for their readers. I often wonder if my posts get boring to people that get used to my humor… if any get it at all.… Read More »
