Computers and Friends ...

I know many of us hate to admit that some of our bestest friendies are people we have met on the 'net ... but it's true, RIGHT?? I feel so fortunate to have made so many great friends and met so many awesome people during my journey on the WWW!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for Dawn's F4A challenge over on SCS. The challenge was to make an "ode to the computer" of sorts, and this is what I came up with (don't really have "computer-y" lookin' stamps, so I kinda made my own image with punches).

A couple of other things ... first of all, can I say I LOVE VERIZON??!!??? After my phone fiasco at Disneyland, I was sure I was TOAST and was gonna hafta revert back to my old phone (a Blackberry, which is a great phone ... but I love my new Droid oh-so-much!). Needless to say, they took GREAT care of me and I am a happy Droid user once again!! WOOHOOO for VERIZON!! Smiley from millan.net

Second ... I am tryingtryingtrying NOT to be a LEMMING!! I have had SOOO many people ask me if I am on Facebook ... when I tell them "NO!" I am met with shock and then given a BUNCH of reasons why I should just join. I have to admit my resolve is waning, BUT I still haven't gone there. I went so far as to start the sign up process a few days ago, but then cancelled the whole thing, deactivated the account and just backed out. Smiley from millan.net Two of my kids are even workin' on me ... HELP!!

Happy Sunday! The fall colors here are simply beautiful! I may just go on a little hike later this afternoon (if it's not raining!!) Smiley from millan.net

I hear you about Facebook. My kids are always after me to join. Since I do not need to be on the web for business reasons, I do not need for the whole world to be able to find me. I have email; I text. That is enough. Hang in there and know that you are not alone.
