denise, you ought to follow Pelón on FB. Imagine if a batch of those inspirational posters from the marketing team at your office went rogue and decided to burn their business suits, find Jesus, start dealing weapons and plowing a share of the profits into the most fucked up mission trips ever, then, in a haze of that maniacally happy seratonin-endorphin rush humans get from helping others, rewrote the inspirational quotes as 600-word calls to action that cued up your own mirror neurons to bust out the best sort of fight-or-flight response to poverty and lack of medical care.

I've been regulating my FB use lately, but Pelón is worth the continued flirtation with "like" addiction.

girl it goes without saying you've always got it going on and I've always enjoyed your enthusiasm but I was banned from facebook long ago.

nobody wears suits no more but yes they majorly contribute to the cause although in a different way because there are so many ways.

Not much to tell..twas the dawn of Facebook and every cool kid had their own page.

Apparently my kids were the coolest and didn't want their mom hanging out at their hangout.

So I acquiesced - although when they forgot to logout I would checkout their sites- and chat with their friends which pissed them off to no end.

true...

fortunately no charges were pressed and everyone forgot about facebooking for the most part - maybe it's safe to sign up now.

It has been a while since this was posted but I have to say that it's the best compliment I have ever gotten. Paige, you rock. Just so you know, Siberia is the next stop...

Haven’t really been on Facefart for a while so I’m out of touch. Hope all is well with you, Doc.

I deleted my facebook presence a while back. I have shifted to the much calmer, and non-tracking, Mewe.com these days. Not so many folks there, but it's a bit more of my speed.

All is well with us. Still living the Southeast Asia dream from time to time with hopes and ambitions to dip our toe back into Iraq at some point next year.
