Years ago, when I was young, people sat on their front porches in the evening and visited with their neighbors. Housewives shared recipes and cleaning tips and products across the back fence or perhaps after Church on Sunday night, or at a Stanley party.
Now it seems J-land has become the back fence and front porch for a large proportion of our society. Thanks to Lois and Celeste, I learned about "buddy stirrups", and purchased a set for Natalie and Monica. The next time they want to ride, they'll be able to have their feet in the stirrups, and will be much more secure.
Thanks to Bookncoffee (I wish I remembered her first name), Cliff and I had a delicious slow-cooker lunch today, Tangy Pork Chops.
Thanks to Faye, who doesn't have a journal as far as I know, but comments in mine sometimes, I learned about Flylady.
I read about your favorite cleaning products and rush out to buy them. I see a good book mentioned in a journal and surf quickly to half.com to search for it.
Toonguy warns me of the perils of corresponding with inmates in prison, and I pay attention.
My senior literature teacher once said, "You won't stop learning as long as you keep reading."
Well, my reading may be on a monitor screen, but I'm still learning.
