No More Facebook for Me

On 17th of June, 2017 – I have chosen to completely delete my Facebook Account. According to Facebook, I have a 14 day grace period in case I changed my mind, but I doubt I will. As time goes on, I feel that my value to most others as a person seems to be less and less. I don’t need Facebook to show me all of the useless and while sometimes amusing, lack of anything real. With this in mind, I decided to do the actual deletion, and removed the link from my .tel address as well as removed the link from my Social Network Page.

So what happens if someone wants to get in touch with me? Well, believe it or not, there is more to the Internet other than Facebook and Porn. When doing a Google search, one of my websites should show up. I can be reached via email, and Hangouts for IM communications. My Google Voice number supports SMS and MMS. If you are reading this post, you can reach me easily. Simply put, I don’t care if most people don’t know how to reach me. Almost everyone that were “Facebook Friends” have other ways to reach me.

Benefits of Google

I had a conversation with someone earlier today (2017-05-03), and she mentioned that she never used Google. She mentioned that she used Yahoo. First thing that came to mind is that we must be back in 1999. Now, I used to used Yahoo until they became incompetent, and there are still those few people that will swear by it. I however feel it might be worth mentioning the real world benefits of Google.

Now, I am not a fanboy, and I do understand that Google is first and foremost an advertising company. They provide “free” services to generate anonymized user data to rent to companies. But in turn so does Yahoo, and Bing. Google is just more successful. Continue reading Benefits of Google

Today was much like most days. I did send a SMS to someone that needed to know something, even though he responded with his passive aggressive stupidity. In the case of this person, it is a relationship on a as needed basis. Andrea also made another partial payment, although not as much as she said she will. I also communicated with some people through a variety of services, and took care of email.

Otherwise, I watched a couple of videos on Hulu, and started feeling a little ill towards the end of the day. However, not much planned for tomorrow. I may go to the grocery store (depending), and if possible – take the dogs for a long walk.

Not much happened today. I sent a couple of SMS messages. I also chatted with someone on BBM, although actually chatting with them was like pulling teeth. I did get a couple of new people to write too which should help consume some of my time.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will expect Andrea to put in some of the money she owes, and I will have to make a couple of phone calls. Otherwise, no real plans for the day. It will be much like any other day.

Not much happened today. I took the dogs out for a couple of walks, I wrote a couple of emails, and watched a couple of videos. In addition, I did a little work on a couple of sites, but for the most part, today has been relatively quiet.

No plans for tomorrow. I can’t do much of anything until my deadbeat family decides to pay their portion of the phone bill. Tomorrow, I will be home for the most part with exception of walking the dogs.

Not much happened today. I took the dogs out for a late morning walk, and one in the afternoon, however was in too much pain to take them in the evening. I guess it is just one of those days.

I also helped a friend set up an email account, as well as will soon be a web site. I will have to finish everything else tomorrow morning. I found the iPod nano, and updated that so it can continue to be used as a night player. The iPod Touch was updated later. The old PC is still serving with that regards, but I am hoping to move everything over to the new PC as it has taken almost 1/3 of the day to get the Nano with 830 songs added. The system was running hot which most of the time – the PC was upside down so the hot air could blow upwards.

Not much happened today. I wrote a couple of emails and messages. I also gave the dogs a brushing, and gave them a few walks. I spent much of my time keeping off of my feet though.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to transfer money from my bank to the credit card. This should make an impact on my interest charges. Otherwise, not much else is planned.

2013-06-24

Not much happened today. I had to make a couple of phone calls which I done. I also received my T-Mobile bill which was a little higher than I expected. I found out why, and it shouldn’t be a regular occurrence. The landlord came to cut the grass in the back yard, and of course I walked the dogs.

I also had to write a couple of emails, and checked on a couple of things online, but the day was a little productive for the most part. As for plans for tomorrow, not much is planned. I will have to go to get dog food this week, and if possible, get cleats on my shoes to minimize the number of trips I will have to take. If I don’t get the dog food this week, it will be on Monday next week when I go to an appointment.

Today could have been a better day. I didn’t sleep well the previous night. I started to feel the effects in the evening. I did walk the dogs then made a phone call. Andrea also paid the phone bill which was good as this provided funds that was needed. I also spent a few moments paying my bills. While all of my bills are paid, it does have a serious impact on my bank account.

I chatted with a few people, although a couple of them didn’t seem that interested in chatted even though they didn’t seem that interested. The evening was coming to a close while dozing offer just before I take the dogs out for the last time before bed.
