I have a love hate relationship with social media.   For one I love catching up with old friends that I haven’t seen in years, looking at pictures and reading about the good and bad things that happen in all of our lives.  That is why I love social media!   But today I remembers that I also hate social media.  Some people are cruel and vulgar and have very little if any respect to people who have a different opinion than they do.  Listen to this from today show about a social media;

There is absolutely no reason why someone to react to Chris Pratts tweet NONE NADA NOPE NO EXCUSE!  I respect your right to have a different opinion than mine, but there are times when you need to keep your opinions to yourself out of R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

I have plenty of friends that have differing views than I do on several subjects and usually I will not respond to a post that expresses a view different than mine, WHY?   Just sing Aretha Franklin and you know why.

I have come close to dropping off of Facebook and twitter because of the B.S. out there and then I remember that I love seeing pictures of new babies, reading or seeing the accomplishments that people have in life and even the tragedies and hardships that is part of life.

So if you are one of those that goes on social media and argues and post horrible things and words that would make a sailor blush just remember this you are the reason social media is in the sorry state it is in.  You can express your opinions but please use some judgement about how you word things. Because you are on a keyboard you feel you can do or write anything without consequences.

You might feel that way but just know this I have a keyboard too that has a delete key!

One more thing, the video of the day on the website about the best smelling foods forgot my favorite.  Garlic and onions sautéing in a pan with Bacon.  This should become the next great air freshener!
