Does anyone else think it’s just a wee bit sad when a parent of several children has to count their “grandpuppies” because none of their children has borne children? I just can’t help feeling that it’s not a good thing when marriage and children are sidelined. I realize that not everyone will get married, and there are blessings in that, but I also think that those people are the minority. The ones who sadden me are those who are married, but childless by choice. I realize that there are people in this world who are concerned about overpopulation, but the fact is that the opposite is actually becoming a worry. Our society is now in a stage where unless a lot of people start having more children, we will not be able to continue our current lifestyle for very long.
It’s such a weird world we live in. There is always a new bandwagon to jump on, and each one tries to solve a problem, but almost always ends up creating one or more new problems.
Why would ANYone name a store Kountry Kubbard? Is that glaring misspelling supposed to attract me to it?
Because…it ‘s not working.
The Mass Exodus to Facebook
I just looked through my 50 or so subscriptions and found that only about 15 have actually blogged anything in the past 3 months. Many of them haven’t been on xanga for a year. No wonder I am so much better able to keep up with my subscriptions than I used to be! And no wonder I no longer get much traffic on my site.
I have gone through numerous temptations to joins Facebook, but every time I spend any time on there, it just doesn’t feel right. It’s all about one-liners and surface talk. Yes, there are occasional good conversations on there, but it’s so hard to wade through the jabber to find them. And I would want to read it all, and I simply don’t have time. But it’s hard to stay away when I have SO many friends on there. sniff.
It’s been an interesting day…very, very quiet, but nice.
