It's good to be informed BY them and also be able inform them. It is a superb source of important info and great pics of cute nieces, nephews, grandkids, siblings, cousins, surrogate grand children, etc.
Your FB page has 239 friends on it with links to their pages. There is lot of information out there and to me it is nothing more than a deposit for social engineering and identity theft. I was able to read it and see who all your friends are. Yes, I have a FB page, but only to jump out there once in a while to see items such as was posted by Sue with a link. Then I go to the YouTube page and get the link that I can manipulate the way I want.

An example is one of your friends named Leandra played CandyCrush on Friday. I could use that information to social engineer my way into her life using CandyCrush as the catapult. My personal belief is that people put to much information out there about their personal lives. How many kids they have, how many grand-kids they have along with their names parent names, and even addresses. Colleges and high schools they went to, occupations, and just a lot of information that can be used for nefarious purposes. Even the fact that you studied at the University of Minnesota is to much information.

Dave, it is just my personal paranoiac way of thinking. I don't mean to offend anyone just because they use FB Look at my FB page and tell me what you see. I hope nothing, but if you do let me know and I'll see if I can hide it.

Trust me, I do not care that you use FB for the things you do. Earlene is an avid user of FB, and for her it is great, but for my personal choice it is a waste of time. I spend to much time on this forum to have to spend time trying to catch up on FB. The only thing I wish I had done with FB was invest in its stock when it first came out. Same with Apple. Oh well, I'm just a poor man.

Mine is a rough column of the salt set on a base, w/ a rheostat in the cord to vary the light as needed. The rheostat stays on high all the time, since it isn't in the bedroom and since it needs to take care of the whole 2-story house.

Thanks Sue, but I'm not sure I would have admitted to that last statement.

Sue, if getting the lamp with the chips of rock salt can regular rock salt be used, like the type purchased in grocery stores?

Edited: Home Depot sells one. Walmart has order on-line and pickup at store.

I don't know about plain rock salt. I know there are electronic ionizers out there purporting to do the same thing. The Himalayan pink salt is more attractive to me than an electronic gadget, so it's probably all down to personal taste and budget.

Comparison testing anyone?

Alive, alive O.

Someone , keeps poking me with a stick to see if I am alive, lol. That's OK, it's nice to be thought of!

Trying to get the trailer roadworthy. A shut-off valve to the heater cracked in the -40 temps this winter and it has to be repaired so we can have water. I have not been on the net so much, as our service is basically c**p now. Every time it rains we lose both phone and internet when the phone lines get wet. I am having to use our wireless hotspot to work from home, so trying to protect the bandwidth and not go over our allotment. We are trying to sell our little bit of paradise and move into the local small town in order to be closer to services and get better internet. We have an offer on a gorgeous old brick home, the kind with foot high wood baseboards, front and back staircase, etc. conditional on our selling here. We did have our place sold (we thought) last week, but the deal fell through because the purchasers did not qualify for financing. Hoping to do lots of more local trailer trips this summer. If we don't sell here, then we may be looking for a park model in an RV park in Florida when we go down for a month in November. Lookin' forward to better internet someday.

Hi Tina... I confess, I poked you guys a couple of times. Really miss your pics and stories. How's the horse of a lap dog doing.

Good luck with the buy / sell!
We do hope to catch you on the Rainbow one day!

When find free WiFi somewhere in town, bump us here!
