facebook - the cops of the world

Back in the day, people blogged under wonderful names
That required a lot of thought....
Fitcetera was a great name.
Jack Sh!t Getting Fit
Who Ate My Blog
Yumm Yucky

Some of the good blogs were sponsored -
Some were just written by a Fattie ...blogging away the pounds
In a basement somewhere in an anonymous Mid-Western town. 

I have never used any endorsement of any kind.
Any contests or give-aways, I bought the prizes myself.

I have even won a few awards!
But never with any sponsorship of any kind.

Well now, FaceBook took away my Carb Tripper page!
They have a policy that people can only use real names.

Which is crazy - because many people have real-sounding names.....
But they are not real names. I guess they need to ask for I.D.

So - what now?

I don't know!

I think FaceBook is on it's way out -
Kinda like My Space was.
Kinda like Dancing With the Stars 
Was intended for a younger demographic....
But then, really hit home with the Middle-Aged groups!

Most younger people don't use FaceBook so much.
Twitter is good - and Instagram....

I don't really know enough about to decide.
I like FB because of the accountability!
Or else a dozen Egg Rolls would have been eaten already.
By me.
Or Donuts.

My nearly 2500 Friends!

My dilemma this:
When I go to a person's house to deliver nursing care,
They will probably google me.
(I know I would google someone who comes into my house.)

And if my Weight -Loss Blog
Comes up, they will see 100 videos of me
Prancing around, singing 
"Look At Me, I'm Fatty Dee!" (link)
Or "I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today!" (link)

Or like my former boss would say:
Watch the F-Bombs!
(The Devil Wears Prada for sure)
Because they sometimes do slip out.

And while I am not really Over-The-Top Offensive,
I just can't imagine how many ways this could go wrong.

Or  to have anyone say - 
"My Nurse told me to go against Doctor's Orders
And go on Atkins!"

Times are changing, but they haven't gotten there yet!

So- What to do ....what to do....
Any ideas?
In the mean while....
Thanks for checking on me!

new peepers

Lots of Double Cheeseburgers in parking lots
Actually - 4 x... this is two doubles... yum
The bottom bun is a holder.... 
Yeah - that's it... a holder

If you want *real* home cooking
Cook at home

Lots to do and see in Big D

Trader Joes knows how to make your day!

New Glasses --
This is the third time in 5 years 
That my vision has improved on Low Carb
And Low PUFA diet!

Thanks, Dr Atkins - and I don't even wear bifocals!
My vision is about the same as it was in 1972 when I first wore glasses
In Middle School 

I skipped work
Actually - I get up so early.. and can't see patients till about 10 am...
And cleaned the apartment!
So much junk! It's great to get rid of it all....
Who knows... new hair cut.. .new glasses... 
You just never know!
