Hi Family! Hope you all are feeling as well as can be expected on this Monday morning. Sometimes the weekend helps us rest up and other times we do more than we probably should and then pay the price come Monday morning. I'm in the latter group today, but it was worth it so...such is life.
Over the years I've been online and worked with this computer I've come to rely on it for many things. Any time I want to know something I just hop online and I can always find some kind of answer. I've look for everything from how to germinate seeds of a 5-needle white pine to killing mold on a shower curtain. My problem is once I get to looking for something I get side tracked and an hour later, or so, I'm still there reading away...lol Grandson and I compare how many silly links we follow when we look up something on Wikipedia. You can get into an endless loop and never come back out again...
But, while searching around on the internet, Googling or Dog Piling or whatever is your favorite search engine....have you ever looked up your own name on the internet? How did you feel about
the results? Wow, that was a shocker! I found remains of an old diabetes forum I used to help with and also a teen forum I moderated many, many years ago....like about
15 years at least. But probably the most disgusting thing was some 'links' with my ex~ <shudder> There are goofball places out there who gather names and any connections with each other. It irks me but there's nothing I can do about
it. I sure would prefer that old connection wasn't there tho. But there are some fun and funny things I got a kick out of.
Go ahead and try it! Google or somehow search your own name and let us know how it goes.
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
