Well, I've caught up on a great many pages of f-list entries, even if I didn't post a whole lot. If there's something important that I missed and I should have responded, please let me know.

I'm sad to see that many of my lj friends have deleted their journals in the past couple of weeks. These are all people who I only knew through LJ, so I have no email addresses, real names, facebooks, any of that kind of thing. I wonder what happened, and where they went. I've kept them around, hoping they'd come back, but it doesn't look like they're going to. I don't even know if they posted about their decisions first, since I haven't had my comp to keep up with lj for a while.

So if you're out there, I hope all is well. Thanks for being part of my life for a while. I'm sorry that we weren't closer so I could check in on you! You guys are all in my thoughts. ♥

My guess is that many of them jumped the LJ ship for Dreamwidth due to LJ's recent fuckery (check news for more info on that). You can search for their usernames on DW, if you want. If you decide you'd like to join us, let me know; I've got invites.

Thanks for the offer! I follow the news community, and I recall the brouhaha that cropped up with the awful FB/twitter posting thing. But it seems like there's always some brouhaha. Luckily, LJ seemed to have listened to the outcry. I don't understand why they'd delete the history of their journals here though, or cut ties with all friends, if they chose to move on. I may look for them. It bothers me not knowing what happened.

I do appreciate the offer, but I'm not at all interested in leaving LJ. I paid for a permanent account and I'm here to stay. I'm glad to know you're still reading over here though! I had thought you left for good.

I've never been the best commenter in the world, but I am still skimming my flist on LJ and helping beta test some new features on occasion over here. I really only have time to skip=100 these days, but I do try to do at least that once or twice a day. :)

I'm glad to hear it! That's really cool about beta testing. I'm not sure I'd have the patience for it, as LJ always seems to be tinkering, but it sounds cool. lol

I haven't been the best reader/commenter either. I was doing well until my computer broke. :( Now I just pop in when I have a free minute.

Oh, also? If you ever want to do a road trip to Minnesota with the girls and the sproglet(s), let me know! Once Jacob gets this whole house nonsense squared away, we should have some room for visitors. If I have it my way, there will be fruit trees planted as soon as humanly possible, hopefully the ones that bear fruit in 5 years, not 30... can you imagine being able to NOT spend $2+/lb for apples and pears and cherries? I am drooling just thinking about it!

Thank you! I would love to one day. I hope that we will eventually do well enough to be able to travel. I'd love to visit all 50 states. Definitely plant fruit trees as quickly as possible! I wanted to last year, but we kind of need to clear out more area. Having to wait so long for fruiting is definitely an incentive to do it ASAP. We have one apple tree, but I think we need to learn about pruning & caring for it. We had tons of wee tiny apples. I need to prune it back and hopefully get less, but bigger, apples. I think we have a little cherry tree, too. We found one or two cherries and tried it out. The rest were unripe, but when we went back for them, the birds or something had eaten them all. :(

i know what you mean - i had a few people just up and delete their LJs. maybe it's the FB/Twitter thing, maybe it's DW was better.

i know i'm here and staying. =)

Yay! I'm staying too. I have FB & Twitter, and I still wouldn't just delete everything I'd put into a journal. I always think something bad must have happened when someone just deletes & disappears without a word. It's all too easy to lose someone on the internet.
Sep. 28th, 2010 05:32 pm (UTC)
yeah, i have a FB and twitter too, but it's different.

i wonder too, what happened to them. i know someone who deleted their journal for their new religious path. but i had two people recently just *poof*... i do wonder, yeah.

so, completely off-topic but...

logan's maternal side of the family also includes mcdivitt's. so, in a very stretched out manner, we are related. *grins*

I knew that was you! Wow, we must be related. Not too many people spell it "McDivitt". Everyone we've ever met outside our family spells it "McDevitt". Ha, talk about a small world & karma & all that! Make good friends with a neato hippie chick from England, my kids fall in love with hers, and come to find out they're cousins. :D Have any idea how/through whom we're related?

I know we're somehow related to James McDivitt the astronaut. I know I told you how my cousin firmly believes we've got fae blood from our Irish ancestors. ;)

logan's gran is on a facebook group called something like "herrity descendents from clinton, iowa" and they have on there a bunch of mcdivitts. knowing how names work, i knew they had to be related somewhere down the very distant line. probably untraceable at this point, but no doubt irish in origin lol.

actually, just checked, and they are mcdEvitts. but the names must have the same source originally, so i'll stick with my "we're related" thing lol.
Sep. 28th, 2010 06:07 pm (UTC)
Aw, bummer! There are loads of McDevitts out there. I don't know if I'm related to all of them or not. Could be...but I tend to think of us as a different clan. Not us-us, though. You and I are soul-sisters, momma!
