Yesterday I saw in the comments section from Jovardy:
Sweet Potatoes slips can be purchased from Renfrow's in Matthews. Also, if you
are on Facebook please join Grow Share Charlotte. A lot of information provided
by gardners and instructors. https://www.facebook.com/groups/113006355406147
Thanks for the tip, Jovardy. I've never been to Renfrow's. Never even heard of them in fact. So as usual, I googled it.
Oooo. AND General Merchandise!!!! This sounds right up my alley. I need to check this out. SM would probably like it too.
Last week the Dr I work for blocked a half day Friday afternoon and took us all out for pedicures as a "Thank You" for all the hard work we put in. Very nice.
While getting my feet pampered I asked one of my coworkers if I could borrow her phone to call SM to see if he wanted me to pick up some PF Changs which was just a few doors down. She dialed it for me, I talked to SM and handed it back to her saying "Here. I don't no how to turn this off."
Boy, you should have heard the ruckus. "You don't know how to turn off a smartphone?"
I felt like a dinosaur on display. Who is this freak of nature?
All this got me to thinking about the self imposed privacy fences that I've created.
I'm not on Facebook. What wonders am I missing?
I'm also not instantly connected. I have computers at work and home, but nothing on the spot.
After our pedicures we all stuck a newly polished foot out and everyone took a group picture of our toes. Suddenly everyone was "thumbing" their phones.
"Posting it to Facebook." Was the reply. Wow. It had to be done right there! On the spot! (Pictures in my camera at home usually sit around for a while.)
I don't own a cell (let alone a smart phone). SM finally upgraded to a smart phone for his business and loves it, but when people ask my how I can live without one, I usually just shrug and say "I can borrow yours if I need to."
I'm not on Facebook mostly for privacy reasons. Yes, I'm on the blog but I feel like I can maintain a level of privacy as long as the people who know me respect my wish to be discreet and not share everything and anything about me. (I do enough of THAT on my own.)
But times like this, I do feel like I'm missing out.
