Doesn't surprise me, though. I think I was the last person on earth to get a cellphone. A flip phone at that. The next day everybody had smartphones.

I don't care what anybody says, I'm not getting rid of that 8 track player in my truck. With my luck, whatever replaced it will be obsolete the next day anyway.

” I just got peer pressured into signing up for facebook yesterday.”

So did I, a few weeks ago. I can’t figure out how to use it! I try to upload a comment or a pic, and nothing happens!

I’m with you. I do not have a smartphone, just a simple phone that takes messages and makes calls. It’s too expensive trying to keep up with every new technology. 8-track. LOL!

It's nice to know I'm not alone in this brave new world.

I don't know why it's so all-fired important for people to know what I'm eating but apparently it is so until I figure out how to do that let me just inform everyone I'm snacking on chips and guacamole and drinking a Shasta cola. My Westie is sitting in her little doggie bed at the foot of my bed and I'm watching Fox News while posting stuff on FreeRepublic.com. My wife is working out in the garden and asking me what I want for dinner.

More later.

I signed up last year, linked a couple of family members and friends to see their pictures.

I never post and ignore all further friend requests. I’m not sure it will be a problem.

I've got one using an ex mafioso's name. It's only used when I I want to post comments to news articles on various news sites. Rather than setting up an account, I can post using that Facebook account.........

Of course, the mafia guy might not like it.........

The need for attention and sharing of photos among family members which pretty much equates to the frst reason. The Feds and identity thieves appreciate dumba$$e$ making their job easier tho...

I had been ‘pressured’ into FB a while back and on a rare occasion I was checking something out on it and I saw an answer to a Letter to the Editor I had sent out that ended up in my FB page...

I figured no good can come from something one doesn’t control OR WORSE - don’t know how to stop it from happening again.

I like the ad with the two old broads sitting at the kitchen table and one has a bunch of pictures pasted over the sink behind her.

She is telling her friend something along the line of she finally got all her pictures on the wall and now she has to start friending people...

Now can someone please tell me how to make the 12:00 stop blinking on my VCR?

Bad enough but how about the ones that want you to ‘friend them’ and you have no idea who they are then they turn out to be the ‘friend’ of a distant relative who your ‘name’ got passed along to.

When ‘these interlopers’ start ‘bugging and demanding’ me to answer or whatever, my not so gentle side comes out and people start (maybe) seeing why I am referred to as the ‘crazy guy in the basement’..

WE ALL are better off with ME not being all that accessible.

I like the one where the husband and wife are arguing over ‘cousin jed’ who has taken up refuge in the basement apartment they have. (An advantage —to the ‘guest’— of two large extended families merging)

“Jane, it is time for your uncle to leave, he is getting on my nerves”.
“MY UNCLE, I thought he was YOUR uncle”.

When we got a new TV last month, we just unhooked and boxed up the VCR and DVD players.....don't have any more VHS tapes, and --honestly--never learned how to use the DVD machine.....if we miss something, we wait for reruns.

So did I. I originally signed on to keep in touch with Class of ‘57 friends....was flooded with stuff from others I hardly knew. I finally got the cruds of hearing that somebody’s canary died or their hamster had pups, and I deleted out of FB, never to return.

I feel the same way about smart phones. My daughter gave me one for my birthday a couple of years ago and after 2 weeks I was ready to throw it away.

I could NOT make it do anything I wanted it to, look up a number and make a call only. Everytime I rubbed my finger across the screen it gave me something different.

I know it takes time to get used to it but I wasn't willing. I got my old flip phone out of the drawer and it is still good to go. All I want a phone to do is call people, that's it!

Class of 57 is one of my favorite Statler Brothers songs.

I use FB mostly to keep up on a few friends, a few relatives, and some interests such as airshows, old jeeps/blazers, old TV shows and movies, Ayn Rand, and photography stuff.
