    Thanks for the Pinterest links. I keep wondering what’s going on with that. Now it’s time to dive in.

    Also wondering what will replace FB? It’s sure to run its course before long and the next great idea maker will start something new.

    Thanks for the links to Pinterest. I’ve been wondering what that’s all about. Guess it’s time to dive in.

    Also wondering what will replace FB? It’s got to end its run here soon. Who/what will be the next great idea maker for social media?

        That’s better, but now I have to disagree with it. A story without an agenda isn’t a story. There isn’t a single story that Jesus told without an agenda. The problem isn’t in having an agenda but in taking shortcuts in the story telling techniques to state one’s agenda.
