Not too long I ago, I attended a workshop for funeral directors who used FB for their businesses. The presenter talked about the Good ‘ol Days when funeral homes (and many other businesses) advertised in the town paper and in the yellow pages of the phone book.
Today, FB has replaced the town paper for most news and is the place people go to learn about and connect with a business. Posts on FB are like when we used to send post cards to our family and friends. . . it is how we now share our stories.
I’m not a fan of the political stance FB has taken and how their massive storage facilities probably know more about me than I know, but it is good for finding out what is going on back in my hometown and with friends, just like when we would read the local paper.
FB reminded me this weekend that it was five years since I posted a memory of the last time the band I was in played together. In some ways it seems like yesterday, but I’m trying to remember the set list from that evening and I haven’t been able to come up with half of it.
We weren’t all that good and we didn’t practice enough, but we sure had a helluva good time when we were together and even when we were having an off night, it was still lots of fun.
The photo was taken as we are playing on an outdoor dock/deck, with a small lake behind us. It was a little cool out that night, but it was “Larry’s Last Stand”.
Here’s to great memories and the guys who helped make them.
Thank you too, Zuckerberg. You may be a elitist weenie, but your product does serve some worthwhile purpose now and then.
