    Re: Random thoughts thread

    Decided to take a step away from Social Media this week. I deactivated my Facebook. I kept instagram just from a business perspective to share pictures of my work. I feel somewhat liberated though. When I had it I would just go on and check statuses and waste time and was really getting nothing out of it. I was averaging about 24min a day on Facebook which probably on a daily basis may not have been much as others spend but I just didnt see the need for it anymore and just felt it was time to get off of it.

    Anyone else had to step away from Facebook/ Social Media?

    I never had it to begin with and have never regretted it

    Me too, though Accumulatorette uses such stuff to keep in touch with her family.

    That`s a fair bit of time IMO, averaged over a week/etc. that`s more than enough time for a great exercise regimen.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    When my Ex imploded our marriage in 2012, my sweet daughters felt bad for me and set me up with a Facebook page, etc..
    I knew - nothing - about it back then..
    It was fine for keeping up with them and their families, that was ok..
    Then all these people somehow get on there, and I started getting a lot of stuff that I had absolutely no time to deal with..
    For example, one nice lady would post up 25 recipes for cooking - every day - yes, - every day -
    Had no time to even just delete all this stuff!!!!

    So, I deleted F/B, eventually, and don`t really miss it..

    My kids know they can email, text, call, me, and that`s how we do it..
    Have absolutely NO desire to waste my LIFE away on all that social media whack stuff, thank you...

    I can`t find some tools I haven`t used in a couple of decades. Like my timing light, vacuum gauge, hand held oscilloscope, and who knows what else. Who knows where they are after all the different moves. I just hadn`t given them a thought up till now because I need them again. It sucks if I have to you buy them again.

    Did you ever buy new? Ya know that`s the best way to get the lost ones to turn up.
    The devil made me do it the first time.
    The second time I done it on my own.

    The only good thing about getting old is no longer having to worry about dying young.

    i did replace the missing stuff. Some new and some I found on offer up. None of it was too expensive. I couldn`t believe how expensive new timing lights are. All I need is a basic one. Glad I found one for $11 on offer up.

    These two bucks came walking through today. I just happened to have the camera sitting on the table. When I first saw them they were only about fifteen feet behind our house. By the time I grabbed the camera, got the lens cap off, turned on at got to the patio door. They they were already to the house across the field. I wouldn`t have gotten the picture at all if the camera hadn`t been right in front of me.

    Gee, Backyard Wildlife indeed!

    Funny, we haven`t seen our local herd lately..the dogs are so used to them they don`t even pay attention to `em much any more, let alone bark.

    Growing up, I was told it was good luck to find a penny facing Heads up on the ground.

    Does anyone else flip pennies over if they see them on the ground Tails up, so the next person gets a lucky penny?

    Oneheadlite- Huh, I never heard of that!

    My wife often picks up pennies, but I`m not touching anything like that unless I can immediately wash my hands
