I glean some interesting information from Facebook, and do get some *news* from people I might not otherwise get. I troll Facebook , and imagine I average a total of 40-50 minutes on it in the course of a day. I do ween myself from looking at it in the morning, as it indeed can be a...

I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” ~ Louisa May Alcott    When I was a young girl, my family and I lived in a high-rise apartment building in the heart of the city....
