Say It. I Dare You.

The questions people ask on eBay about the stuff you're selling really make me raise my eyebrows. I swear I just had someone pretty much say 'screw you guys I'm going home' because I didn't answer the question straight away.

I think it's great for someone like Scrills, who knows a million people from everywhere, or for someone who wants to keep in touch with a group without sending duplicate email messages.

I quit shortly after trying it out a few years ago. It made me feel.....exposed in a creepy way.

I also find it hard to believe that every single person I "may" know is leading an absolutely fantastic life.

I have one "friend" who has to post constantly about her "fabulous" life when really her whole life consists of posting on Facebook. I want to punch her when she tries to make it seem like this makes her more important than me.

Go ahead and sock her a good one.
As for Facebook, I don't understand the problems people have with it. If I don't want to read something I just don't (Like posts from my religious friends. I skip most of what they say).
And if I post on my Facebook wall that I had fried cheese for supper, watched a movie, have an earache, and then post yet another pic of my cat, that's my choice. People can read it or not. And Mark Zuckerberg can spread it all over the universe if he wants. It's a social network. If I wanted to be private and unsociable, I wouldn't be on Facebook.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
Oh, quackery so soon? Sigh.
How does one know they're being obnoxious on FB? I try to keep it light and happy most of the time, posting about junk we've done and since I love cooking I'll post things about that. I also try not to vague-book because that is just assanine in most situations.

Is there a website for signs one can look for so they don't become "that person"?

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
^I think the bottom line is we're all annoying. Threads here about FB list pretty much every behavior under the sun as obnoxious.
I am so excited! Finally got my fresh meat from the farm. And soon, there will be raw milk. I can't wait. Yay!

Ruralcurls, that's great! You might not like the raw milk. It's too grassy for a lot of people. Plus I don't feel great from a safety standpoint drinking it.
You should definitely make cheese and other dairy products with it, though! You can make ricotta in five minutes, with the microwave! And fresh mozzarella is easy, too.

Thanks, Saria. Now I know what to expect. She started telling me about making butter and cheese and my eyes glazed over. I will check more into the safety issue.

If people are allowed to say whatever they want, or post whatever they want, from what they ate for dinner, to song lyrics, (and I feel they are allowed to do so) on FB then conversely someone is just as allowed to not read it, not engage, or not have a FB at all. If one is okay, then surely the others are too.

And whatever reason for doing so isn't necessarily up for argument. Live and let live.

It's pasteurized as opposed to ultra-pasteurized, which is mostly done with cream, but also with milk. At least you can still get pasteurized milk at the supermarket, whereas cream that isn't ultra-pasteurized is just about impossible to find.
Milk at the market is also usually unhomogenized.
I'll defiantly do it again!
Somehow I don't think freezing cut, unbaked biscuits is the subject of that much contention.
(I'd wager that autocorrect tried to fix "definately", though mine definitely doesn't change it to defiantly.)
Mr. Spring said he was going to make biscuits this weekend. I guffawed at him in the grocery...YES, guffawed.

I just don't see it happening.

I think they have Horizon brand at the stores here, which I'm pretty sure is ultra pasteurized. Either way, I feel very fortunate to have access to high quality and a pretty good variety of local products.
