Facebook e mailed me back today.

Do not get me wrong. Facebook is a good site, it has great strengths. I believe it is a great place for business people to access the millions of people ripe for the picking up of their products.

They asked again for a picture in this e mail, and my date of birth, and government ID or maybe two business type IDs.

Now, they promised to delete these IDs after they were done with them. Or shred them.

How can I trust where this is coming from. And are the Facebook employees trained to handle private information. Do they have supervisors, supervising their actions and double checking if the information is deleted promptly.

I do not know, nor will I ever know. And, I do not trust their employees in handling sensitive information.

I only trust governments, to handle my information. And that is pretty much it. Ok, the banks too. Any institution where they have proper training in privacy matters.

Facebook did have a few leaks of phone numbers awhile back, and peoples e mails, from what I heard on the news awhile back. Showing all of that to millions of people.

What else did I personally seen on facebook. I seen peoples political affiliations, friends, music preferences, where people like to shop, where they like to vacation. Just by clicking on peoples icons, you can see, well, nearly everything. I could see peoples likes, political stances on certain issues, brand likes, so on and so on. What a great marketing tool! It is great for the dark side of the moon, too! Theives and cons.

And, I found it to be a mostly intrusive program. They asked for you to put a star on your closest friends. To me, all friends are equal in life. Of course, even if you had close friends, why would you put a star and tell the world their are two standards for friends. I found that funny.

It is sad. Facebook could have found out, so much about me.. So much.. Alas, maybe some other day!

Till next time.. Oh, and do not forget about my awe inspiring giveaway just a few blogs below..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
