Greetings friends and visitors @Padre's! It has been my habit during Lent to step back for the internet and social media in particular. I have so enjoyed my time spent on Locals that it will actually feel more like a sacrifice than in the days of giving up Facebook & Twitter. I will not be visiting some of my favorite Locals during Lent. I will be utilizing my Locals for Lenten activities and postings which I used to do years ago before the legacy platforms became more toxic. Any of you are welcome to join there (shameless plug, something I rather loathe) if you want to participate in the community here. There is a promo code for 30 days of free interaction if you want to do any posting there. I hope to see you there, and if it is not your cup of tea, I look forward to catching up with you during the Easter season and beyond. Thanks for being part of my renewed appreciation for the good that social media can promote and create.
Hey @SEPTUAGENARIAN, hope they make you smile
Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
Good Morning Neighbors from across the Local's landscape! Happy Sunday Refugees, Early Birds, Later Dayers, Conversants, and Lurkers! Hey there Phamily, Dawn Patrol, Day Walkers, Supporters, Members and Visitors! Hello again Triggeratti, Fascinating People and Beautiful Bigots! I am sure there are other wonderous Local's communities with their own vibe and rhythm, but there is only so much time to visit even the ones I favor.
A late start to the day, I was content to listen to the Dark Horse Podcast before hoping further online. I am sure I will be posting it later at Padre's. Some really good discussion about the gaslighting of the last two years. Whatever the day ahead of you holds, I hope you discover joy, or more likely bring joy to the day ahead of you. A few quotes on joy for perspective on a Sunday. Have a blessed day my friends!
Long but very worthwhile analysis of the gaslighting of the last two years and a path forward after the narrative collapses, or more likely pivots as is often the case.
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you. Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
