Ok, Texas peeps, it's time for an intervention. Our own beloved DBA has been hanging out too much with others from that place north of us, you know, that state that begins with the letter "O". Being the kind individual that he is, he has put his compassion into action after the devastation caused by tornadoes recently. However, today I witnessed him comparing Texans with people from that state, saying that we have positive traits in common. One of his new friends from up there referred to us as "Baja Oklahoma"
I think that he has lost his mind. At least he has a conscience, as he told them not to let "us" know what he has been up to!
We need to get him back with us or else he might be snatched away before we can even have our meet up!

Two questions.
What is facebook and who the hell made outnabout the class monitor of all things texan?
Those stupid backwards okies just had a devastating natural disaster and could really use some positive self esteem..... which because they live in Oklahoma they are lacking in the first place, therefore it is unethical of me to not instill some in the inbred, barefoot, illiterate, knuckle walkers that reside there.
Comparing them to perfection I really mean texans ought to increase their self image....not really they still live in oklahoma..... but at least I tried. Shalom

Happy Friday my fellow Texans!

Sorry to hear about the horse Kiara and your chickens TG:(

As for Facebook, I'm sure there are others out there that don't have an account (besides DBA obviously).

ONA, I wouldn't jump to conclusions about DBA as it is in his nature to assist those in need and Okies need ALOT!!!!!

DBA, Facebook is just another way to keep up with people. I have an account but hardly ever post anything. I only keep it to keep up with what's going on with most family, friends and in the world (I hate to watch the news).

This. I unashamedly friend and unfriend based on what I want/need to see on facebook feed. I love to follow family, horse friends, and church friends.....

DH doesn't have a FB acct. I have a few of his friends on mine. One, I graduated HS with, the other, I knew before FB was even thought of, or Mark Z. was born probably! lol

TG, sorry about your chickens.... it was a full moon this weekend you know, did your chupacabra come out?

I pay solitaire on FB more than anything. I read thru, like a bunch, share several. Rarely post about my personal stuff... except when I ride, or horse related! lol

And, I have NO Texas riding buddies, all my riding buddies are Okies **shamed faced**

I'm on the fence with the facebook stuff - I just don't like getting tagged in photos - nothing to hide, just don't like it. You can't control what other people post - that's a bit of an issue - my own sis-n-law posted a family pic of us all in our bathing suits one year - a very silly picture that was by no means flattering and hubby made her take it down. Stuff like that doesn't go well with his profession or mine our colleagues don't need to see that stuff. I worked at a place where the DVM checked facebook for applicants that were being hired and regardless of their experience, she wouldn't give them the time of day if they had anything even slightly unprofessional out there.

Still thinking about it tho.......just have to figure out the pros and cons...

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone have big weekend plans? I think i am going to butcher chickens. I had to put down one of my hens last night that got picked to the point her skin broke and muscle was showing - bloody mess. Roosters have to go.

FB is a funny thing. I like to share some pics .. or an occasional situation, or like places that we visited.

DH has an account that he rarely/never uses. We both had his daughters in WV as friends, as well as his son that lives here. The WV crew thinks we are rich because they, well, live in poverty... by choice.

Pretty soon, DH starts "warning" me to be careful what I say on FB, or be careful posting pics of this trip, or that bike ride, or the horses, etc ... because he didn't want to upset the WV crew ....

I not only UNFRIENDED his entire family .. but unfriended my husband too. I'll be danged if I'm going to be censored on something as innocent as "here is a picture of our horses ... or our trip to Florida .. or my motorcycle" because other people are going to be offended.

So, like I said, I unashamedly friend and unfriend based on what I want to see or talk about on my feed.

DH hasn't even figured out that I've unfriended him yet... *snort*

Happy Friday, Texans! Today is my son's final day of 2nd grade and he's beyond excited.

I'm on FB quite a bit. I rarely get to see my family in person, since we are all spread around the US. I rarely get to see my long-time friends since we are all busy with jobs & have school aged kids with homework & early bedtimes. FB is how we "keep up" with each other.

I do use my real name on FB but my profile is set to private, where you are supposed to only be able to access my photos & pictures if you are my friend (I know there are no guarantees!) I'm still careful about what I post. I won't post about being away from home, because no one needs to know if my house may be vacant while I'm vacationing! I have a house/dog-sitter to watch the place, but I definitely wouldn't want anything to happen to them if someone tried to break in while I'm away!

I have had a FB account for several years but rarely go there anymore. I've had to unfriend people for various reasons, since I am a teacher and anything posted could be used against me if found. And then I really don't have that many people that I want to friend. They are mostly acquaintances. My other people I see on a regular basis, so why put stuff online?
I am about to cancel that account and maybe start a new one without using my real name.

Some people are over the top with facebook. Their little iphones can relay their exact location at any time of the day. I have one friend that a notice pops up everytime she's at the Waxing Bar... really? I don't care to know when she's getting her bikini wax.. lol
