It's been a long time

It seems I don't blog list I used to. I was strongly motivated a few years back but seem to have lost it. Some things have changes, career, time, family and facebook.
Yeah, facebook seems to have stolen a lot of time from independent bloggers and redirected us to "social networking". Isn't the internet already "social networking"? Oh well. Now that I think about it, isn't facebook just AOL recreated? Most of us make fun of those that have an AOL email address and can't imagine why people still subscribe. But then we join facebook and it's just AOL with a new User interface and name. Talk about going full circle. I started on AOL back in 1996 when that was pretty much the only option. Then I got a taste of the "real" internet and ran away from them. Seems that maybe they had a good business plan anyway. Not sure where they went wrong and facebook stepped in.
Well, I hope to return to blogging soon. There is so much happening in the world that needs to be talked about. We have a huge oil leak in the gulf coast, a US government that is hell bent on making us a socialist country, a congress that is hell bent on shutting down free speech and local politics all over the country going crazy to try and get back our constitutional rights while others try to take them away. We have a Mexican President telling America how to govern itself. What? Yeah, a 3rd world country full of corruption is trying to tell us how it's done. And our President is listening. So much going on! I have to get writing again.
