Friends only

Well, I've been busy on Facebook, playing like a child with things like "MyFarm". If the people who play that silly game think farming is that easy, we're in for a lot of problems. But I can't resist it.

And I've been looking for a few new games to add to my phone. I have Solitaire, which is fun to play while listening to music (and reminds me of my grandfather--one of the few nice things one of my grandfathers did was teach me to play that game, the other one was nice all the time).

Suggestions from the iTunes store are welcome.

So, here's the deal on the Friends Only thing.

Several of my good friends in life are teachers. There are pictures of most of them somewhere on this blog. None of them were posted without the person's approval and knowledge.

About six months ago, one of my friends students found pictures of him on my blog. They were entirely innocent, but certainly might suggest that he has gay friends and is comfortable around them.

At his request, I removed certain photos, including some of him at the beach.

Recently (just before I made the blog friends only), students at his school became amused by the photos in my blog again. And they found a few more, even more innocent photos, which they were showing to other teachers.

This is totally no big deal. It basically showed that my friend has friends. You've seen (well, most of you have, unless you read by blog in a text only reader, which 3 or 4 do) the pictures here. There's nothing exciting. But it was becoming a distraction for my friend to deal with these students and his co-workers.

I knew I didn't want to be a teacher!

David G., please comment on this entry if you can read it. If you can't I need to fix something. What, I don't know! But I'll figure it out.

Now, I'm off the see the live-action shorts nominated for the Academy Award (saw the animated ones yesterday.)
You can find me on LinkedIn and on Ancestry.com.

Can someone who does not have an LJ account be your friends? My friend JJ (who you met in Ventura) reads your blog.

Yes, it tells how on the "friends only" page, with an OpenID. If that doesn't work, we'll figure something out.

Or I'll move the whole blog to another platform. Nothing like a technology challenge!

Re: Thanks for being my friend
Thanks, David! I was beginning to wonder if I needed to start a new blog!
