I know I cannot be the only one who has this problem. I used to live on FB but with all the hulabaloo with the US election, fighting back and forth between members and things that don’t belong on any social media site, I have been on less and less. So when a friends and family have events, parties, or places they would like me to be I do not always see the invite. I understand events that invite hundreds of people, it makes no sense to send individual e mail or messages but the private or smaller events I have been missing.
Late year I missed a 50th birthday of a friend, a shower for another friend and a pot lunch summer gathering. Why, because I didn’t check the events page. After missing these events and asking the persons who sent the invites why they didn’t ask me they all said “It was on FB.” So I am pleading with you all, if you would like me to attend please send me an e mail or messenger me. This way if I cannot attend you will know why instead of not hearing from me at all.
Thank you for letting me rant.

I feel the same as you, Chris. I don’t even turn on the computer for days sometimes. The only problem with that is I have hundreds of e-mails to deal with and that takes hours to deal with. I don’t know if you are familiar with The Lord of the Rings, but I sometimes feel that, like Gandolf said about Gollum – I have a love-hate relationship with the computer. Especially where Facebook is concerned.

I am indeed familiar with the lord of the rings and their characters. lol I spend a lot of time on the computer with my e bay store, websites, building sites for others, writing ect and FB comes last especially when I am in a lot more pain with these knees.
anyway how have you been?
