|Me, June 1974 (40 years ago!)|
The Internet and blogging often get a bad rap these days. All the moaning and groaning about loss of privacy, you have to get over it folks. Just assume that everything you do is monitored by the government and recorded. This is a fact that was brought out in the open by Edward Snowden. Is it any wonder that the government is in such hysterics about condemning Snowden and tossing him in a jail cell, naked, with a light on for 24/7 for the rest of his life? We have to get past out loss of privacy folks, it's a way of life in the Big Brother world.
Now, here is why I like the Internet and blogging. A few days ago a former co-worker of mine read an old blog posting of mine about where I used to work in Philadelphia, Girard Trust Bank. She commented on my blog and new we're in touch again. I love this! So many folks from my Previous Life are gone, it is so nice to hear from someone who is still alive and well even though it is hard for me to imagine that my young and beautiful co-worker is now a 67 year old grandmother.
I told her that I had old photos of her taken at work. She asked if I could post them. So, I went digging through the boxes that I have yet to unpack in my basement storage room from our move to Delaware in November of 2006. Yes, I am ashamed to admit I still have boxes (I'm not telling you how many) that are still unpacked. Well folks, digging through those boxes I came across about a dozen photo albums that I haven't looked at in over 30 years! You know what I'm going to do with those photos, scan them to my computer and share them with you all. Another Big Project that I will happily undertake.
Yes, I love the Internet and blogging. Through my blogging I have met and am now friends with my Brother From Another Mother, my soulmate and good friend Pat from Toronto, Canada. Pat and I are so much alike. He's the friend I've been looking for my whole life. Cute, handsome, sexy, smart, and we have so much in common. I've never had a friend in my life that has had all these attributes. I've spent a lifetime looking for him but through the Internet and my blog I found him. I won the lottery with this guy!
I have also made other friends through my blogging and the Internet. You all know who you are and I appreciate every one of you.
I was wondering what I was going to blog about today. Lately I've been leaning towards a rant but I didn't really want to take my faithful blog followers on another one of my political rants or the "poor me" rants. So here is something positive that I'm writing about today. Yes folks, today is a good day. When I feel myself slipping into depression, despair and hopelessness something wonderful happens like it did this past week to remind me of how good my life is.
