Well, I think it just might be the end of the world...

... as we know it, because I just signed up for a Facebook account. Yes, me. I have said for years that I would not join Facebook, but it seems that I just did.

To be honest, I did have an joint FB account with my wife for a while, but I rarely looked at it and even more rarely posted. But I decided that I wanted to be able to contribute to a few FB groups and so I needed my own account. Thus, I signed up.

I don't fully get how FB works but I do know that "Friends" are involved. I'm not sure I'm going to go the friend route, rather, I think I'll just contribute to FB groups, like the Appalachian Tenkara Anglers, a group I've followed for a while.

So don't be offended if you send me a friend request and I don't do anything with it. It's not personal. Just roll your eyes, call me an old codger and humor me.  See you on the dark side.


  1. Now that is a worry!!!
    I signed up once, then all these 'long lost relatives' wanted me to be their 'friend'. I deleted my account very quickly!!!

  2. I'm on there too but I have everything turned off concerning the requests and all my photos are for me only unless I intentionally post something in the tenkara groups and tenkara trading post.

  3. Tom, welcome to the "Dark Side". Should you choose, you will find me there.

  4. It's just another 'community', albeit a digital one.

  5. I tried to friend your account before. It was pretty obvious that you didn't use it. Will you post link your profile so we can all friend/follow you?

    You should look into joining some of the tenkara groups. Tenkara Anglers, American Tenkara Anglers, Tenkara Where?, Tenkara Kabari Library. Here are the links. Tenkara Anglers Tenkara Kabari Library Tenkara Where? American Tenkara Anglers

    I actually came to your site because I was looking for a blog post of yours to answer a guys question from the Tenkara Anglers group. I hope you have a good experience on Facebook. You kind of already had a presence there since many of us post things from your blog there. :)

  6. Be Welcome ... it's not that bad ... Brocollis is worst!
