Have You Baby Boomers Tried “Facebook” Yet?…

January 29th, 2010

Pic Thumbnail Web view

So I ask all of you, my fellow Baby Boomers, about the social media called Facebook. Have you tried it? I know you’ve heard of it. You cannot read anything anymore without tripping over the word Facebook.

But have you put your toe in the water yet? It doesn’t hurt… really. I waited awhile because I had no idea how it worked. Different people kept telling me to use it to promote my blog (Baby Boomer Baloney) and to stay in touch with family and friends.

Well, Facebook and Phil are now good buddies. I am having some fun with my new toy even though I don’t totally know all the nuances of my new pal. That will come soon, though, I’m sure.

There’s a little bit of everything on Facebook. All kinds of conversations are going on among your family members, friends, and hobby associates. People promote products and services, discuss sports, debate politics, and tell jokes or share videos.

You can have private conversations or tell something to everyone who is on your Facebook list of friends. You can be serious or silly about any topic you have an interest in. It’s a type of glorified or enhanced e-mail that’s more fun because of the community approach.

Probably best of all is the aspect of choice. You only invite those friends into your inner circle of Facebook contacts that you want. You can deny entry into your circle of friends by refusing to become friends with strangers or other scoundrels and varmints.

What do some of you use Facebook for? Give the rest of us some ideas we can use. Send Comments, OK?

The Pro-Life Movement… and the Adventures of Tim Tebow

January 27th, 2010

CBS will broadcast a 30 second commercial during the Super Bowl featuring the mother of Florida football star Tim Tebow along with her famous son.

And all hell has broken loose around the country with women’s groups. It seems that these groups feel that this feel good story gives an unfair advantage to the pro-life cause. How sad.

Twenty some years ago Mrs. Tebow made the decision to give birth to her son in spite of warnings from her doctor that the birth could be a problem for her. She ignored his warning and brought her son into this world.

Let’s get real here… she had to give birth because Tim had to win the Heisman Trophy one day. Hey, what’s more important: one more abortion or a Heisman Trophy.

Well, pro-choice organizations (code word for abortion groups) just don’t think this situation is very funny. Nor do they think this is a feel good story.

Focus on the Family and Dr. James Dobson, a hero to me for all he has done for Christian parents, will sponsor the Super Bowl ad. Dr. Dobson is a hard working Christian gentleman that has spent many years helping parents seeking counseling about the proper raising of their children.

As I drove around the Omaha area and other Midwest cities in my capacity as a sales rep, I had the privilege to listen to Dr. Dobson on his radio show for years giving Bible based advice to young parents.

Kathy and I had four boys we were trying to raise to become responsible God fearing young men. Dr. Dobson’s programs did a lot for me. Now, I trust he has a very positive message to deliver on Super Bowl Sunday.

If the women’s groups are going to be offended by a nice story concerning the Tebow family, too bad.

Baby Boomer Intelligence… We Win Again

January 26th, 2010


An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son Bob in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but your mother and I are divorcing. Forty-five years of misery is enough! I’m sick of her, and I’m sick of talking about this, so call your sister in Boston and tell her,” and then hangs up.

The son frantically calls his sister, who goes nuts upon hearing the news.

She calls her father and yells, “You are not getting a divorce! Bob and I will be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a single thing, do you hear me?”

The father hangs up the phone, turns to his wife, and says, “It worked! The kids are coming for a visit, and they’re paying their own way!”
