First 2022 post …. some random musings.

My Mom has been posting on Facebook for over a year now. At first, she just wanted to reconnect with relatives and friends, especially those living in the Philippines. But now, she feels she has to get out of it. She thinks Facebook users live in Lalaland and just want to show off a life of privilege and bliss. She understands the motive , of course. Who wants to post about a life of destitution and misery in public, anyway? ( shakes head )

As for me, I made my Facebook page private. Only relatives and close friends can see my stuff . Now, why did I do that? Do you remember the photo below ? My ex -boyfriend did that when I updated my new relationship status on my Facebook. New boyfriend just 3 months after break-up…. I guess he was offended.


Mom also feels overwhelmed with spiritual, religious, and inspirational Facebook notifications from friends and relatives. She’s like, ” I get it ! Stop !” I guess her friends and relatives are at that age where they’re starting to prepare to meet their Maker. ” Say AMEN if you want Jesus to heal your wounds.”


I watched how, last month, a Category 5 typhoon Odette wreaked havoc on a large area in the Philippines on YouTube. The Philippines is the center of typhoons in the Asia-Pacific region , getting at least 20 typhoons a year, half a dozen of which are very destructive. Check out the video below. It’s jaw dropping.
