What's up with me and what's up with LJ?  
I haven't updated this journal in ages. It's not that I am not reading your posts, I have. I don't know many active friends I stil have, and I definitely don't know how many of you even care of my existence. I truly don't blame you. I did not seem that I was around that much. Why? Well, FB took a good portion of my time away. I am working hard rescuing dogs. Facebook has the rescue pages (some of them I own) and group pages. On top of itl all, my health and my mother's health has not been good, and to add the cream on top of troubles, one of my dog's died.

But I'm digressing, it is not about me that I am writing today. It's about the STUPID, NEW FRIENDS FEED. What's up with LJ? I hate the new feed. I tried to avoid to switch to the new feed for as long as I could. LJ wouldn't let me do that. I'd love to see the Friends Feed to, either look like the way it was (like my journal), or better yet, just feed everyone's page the way they had set them up. It would be cool to see the different backgrounds, fonts, etc. What's your opinion?

good to hear from you.Sorry for the loss. Hope you are feeling better.

I still keep my old style by avoiding any attempt to change to the new one. Sometimes the option is the 'keep' or to 'revert'. But once you keep, you can never revert.

People come and go. Mostly it was the rise of FB that caused a decline in LJ posting.

We have a renter now that also adopts rescue bassets. So temporarily we are a 4 dog family again!

Post more. I read LJ every day.

Thanks, Rick.

We lost our Bailey. She died on her former Daddy's arms. (We had an open adoption.) If death can be defined as beautiful, she had a gorgeous one.

We are now a 2-basset family. I think I want to keep it that way.

It's good to read you again! Sorry to read about your loss tho :( I also read about your mom's health on Facebook (I'm not very active there but I do check it up) and I'm truly sorry about her also, I hope everything will go smoothly with her, and that you also feel better soon.

I still have the old friend feed on LJ for now.

I'm here. As, you noticed by the huge update I just posted.

Sadly I didn't even realize for some time that you'd been sick this last time because I hate the feed on FB. It takes me hours and hours to scroll through, so I gave up on doing so ages ago. If there had been something here I would've seen it with no problem much sooner.

I have commented on your twitter posts muliple times, but have no idea if you see those comments or not.

I never switched to the new feed, so everything looks the same to me.

Yeah, FB is hard to see. It shows you things you don't want to see and vice and versa.

I must have switched accidentally. I hate it. I wish I could switch back.

Oh, don't even get me started on FB. But you probably already know how I feel about it, based on my numerous bitchy posts I've done there complaining. LOL But it's not just that. I have so many friends and people post so much.

I'm guilty of that, too. It's easier to press "share," then to write a small essay, which is LJ style.
