Betcha Could Stay Cool Here!

Hey postcard travelers....don't forget your sweater on this trip. Says it stays at a constant 56degrees F. within the caverns.
Check out the back cover. The minibooklet says the bats fly out from the caverns each evening from April through October to feed in the valleys of the Black and Pecos Rivers below. Wow! I have added this place to our Bucket List!!!

Ahhhhh. Nothing like a Maryland snow to cool you off! 1966. Snowsuits! Wet kids enjoying the snow event! Nothing like it! I haven't seen snow for real in over 4 years except on tv. Yes I miss the beauty and silence of walking in the snow and enjoying the sights. So when I get missing the snow I walk over to my albums and whip out these pics! Ha! No shoveling required!

Bye! Bye! Facebook!

Yep...did it... Facebook is a place with no phone number to call with concerns. It is a place that gives your friends and relatives names and phone numbers from your mobile phone to others without their permission. While closing down my Facebook account tonight and deleting everything... I have started to wonder if there really are people there at Facebook or is it just a machine? Does it have a conscience or concerns for anyone? In face what IS its purpose?
I have permanently deleted it from my daily activities. Weird and wonderful feeling! So now I am even downsizing my techy stuff! Ha! Ha! Who woulda thought!
Watch out next generation....  Facebook has too much control over your personal lives with no accountability. DON'T WAIT TIL  IT IS TOO LATE to make it accountable and honorable. With no accountability it could make the recent Wall Street Crash look like a nothing event.

And check out one of my favorite writer's blog entries today: David Meerman Scott:

Geez! Just when you think your home phones are not in as much jeopardy as our mobile phones!

Facebook Giving Your Iphone Contacts & Nos to People Blocked Out of Your Page By Friends Only


Your Facebook account has a Facebook Phonebook page for each user that displays contacts(which are ALL your names and numbers listed on your iphone) you have imported from your Iphone( possibly without you even realizing it) when  you synced your mobile phone to Facebook , as well as your Facebook friends & their phone numbers if they put them on their info. Facebook says If you would like to remove your mobile contacts from your Facebook account, you need to disable the feature on your mobile phone and visit Facebook's Remove Imported Contacts page.Meanwhile THEY ARE GIVING ALL your NAMES & NOS IN YOUR ENTIRE IPHONE LIST TO anyONE you have blocked OUT with your FRIENDS ONLY privacy settings on your Facebook page. Sounds a little illegal to me! I had no clue it was going on.

I happened to be sitting next to someone today who had her mobile phone and was trying to "Friend" me and it said No one with that name . I tried her name and the same thing happened. The first time it had ever happened to her! She has Friended many people on her mobile phone as I had also done on my computer at home.

But what happened next was the most surprising of all. Up on her phone popped the message: Here are some of Sandy's friends that you might like to invite to be friends even though you are unable to invite Sandy. Before our very eyes were ALL MY PERSONAL  PRIVATE NAMES AND THEIR PHONE NUMBERS that are on my iphone's contact list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This doesn't make sense. Why would they give that personal info to people blocked out with Friends Only privacy settings!!!!

Verizon (our service) and Apple (our Iphone) had never heard of anything like this!

But there is NO WAY to contact Facebook by phone. If Amazon and Ebay have phone numbers Facebook can and should be required to do so! No phone number is unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I removed my Iphone's Facebook app and also removed imported contacts on my facebook page. I left my friended Facebook names and numbers on that page because the only way to remove them was to UNFRIEND them and I didn't want to unfriend my friends!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS INFORMATION TO ALL your mobile phone friends on Facebook you can. A very serious flaw in Facebook's Iphone App! in my opinion!

Summer Time is Old Comic Book Time! No School! Lazy Days!

What were you doing in January 1978? I was two years into living in Spotsylvania Va and loving every minute! This is what Richie Rich was doing. Check this comic out at my Ebay store here:

Bye Bye Biggio Baseball Card!

Craig Biggio has cards valued above a lot of players. I always wonder what makes one player's cards more valuable to collect than the others. Offield performance or onfield? He comes out fine in both. As does Johnny Bench and his cards that I have listed have sold well also. So maybe it's the combination that does it and I like that! It's hard for kids to find heroes...role models these days!

Do You GET This Pharmacy Comic Postcard?

Postmarked 1953. New York. Mailed to Mobilio Pharmacy inn Philadelphia, Penna. Address looks like it was typed on with a typewriter. Very interesting comic type pic on the other side. I don't understand it. If you do, email me! Can't find a drugstore with this name at this site. But I did find various drugstores with different names on Broad Street. Wonder if the building is still there!
