My melanoma (Cont’d.) and Facebook

Tomorrow I go to the hospital for X-rays, and another operation on my arm, and God knows what all. My Pre-op directions call for taking a hot shower tonight, scrubbing vigorously with an anti-bacterial soap, like Dial.

Okay, let’s get on a more pleasant subject. Let’s talk about two social networking sites—Facebook andf MySpace. In the book I bought, “Facebook—the missing manual”, it says that having a lot of “friends” on My Space is considered a status symbol, but not so on Facebook. It says that on Facebook your “friends” should be people you actually know—and actually care about keeping up with. Well, I have “friends” on Facebook that I have never heard of—have no idea who they are!

A few days ago, I “opted-out” of Facebook notifying me on email, that I had messages on Facebook. I did this because I want my “friends” (who I know and care about)  to contact me by email—not Facebook. I have mentioned this on my WALL, so what I have done  should not shock anyone.

So, FRIENDS, let’s communicate via email from now on, and not on Facebook. Okay? So let me hear from you.

George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
