I’ve not been on the blog much of late. My head has been firmly stuck up my arse. Work is getting in the way at the moment and it’s beginning to get me down. I need a new job as the tiling is taking its toll on my back and knees. Still, it pays the bills.
Anyway, I joined the rest of the world last week and joined FaceBook. I only joined it to see a video our friends had done, starring my wife, my kids, one of their friends and myself.
Here’s the link if you fancy a butchers. (It’s a bit slow getting going, but it you move the indicator along the “play line” it works. It’s not the actual shape of my head and it’s not my wife’s actual jawline. She wasn’t too impressed! Ha!)
So, I’ve been on FB for a week. Thanks to all who accepted my friend requests or who requested friendship and who’ve given advice BTW. I digress. I’ve been on it for a week and my profile has already been infiltrated by some areshole who sent out dodgy links to “friends”. I checked what the link actually was but it came up as a “continue at your own risk” kind of thing. Apologies if you got one but, in the words of Shaggy…”It Wasn’t Me!”
I’ll probably not use FB much, unless someone can convince me otherwise about its positives. I’m not that interested in it. I actually know people who use FB on separate computers in their own house and “talk” to each other. Holy bollocks, Batman! Where has the art of conversation gone?
I personally much prefer this blogging lark. Yes, I know, I’m only talking to you with words but there’s something different about blogging. I feel that people actually think about what they are doing with their own blogs and put a lot into it. I’m not saying that people don’t care about their FB profile, but to me it just seems a bit dull. A blog, after all, is your own creation. FaceBook certainly isn’t. It’s the creation of some college whizkid who’s now a billionaire and has had a film made about it. I’m probably alienating myself here but I’m not having a go at anyone who loves the FB world. I just think blogging is much better is all, and it’s just my opinion.
Right, Photo-Finish Friday. This was taken a few days ago just a few miles from where we live. I love this tree. It looks the same all year round. If you look at the top, there’s a red kite perched on one of the branches that I only noticed after it flew away. Hope you like…
Have a great weekend people.
