Facebook

Every morning, I wake up and catch up with the world by reading blogs, reading emails, sending out a few messages, and checking out Facebook.  I got onto FB a few years back when a sister asked me to play Scrabble with her.  Then I discovered that most of my nieces and nephews were already on there, and thought it would be a good way to keep up with their lives and happenings.  A few distant friends, and folks that have moved away from our lives…..and it’s still a great way to keep up with things.

Besides hearing, or seeing, what’s going on with all those friends and family, I get a few tid-bits every day that catch my interest.  Here’s some of what I found there this morning:

People post beautiful pictures – of God’s world and the glory of His creation:

There are opportunities to learn some health tips and facts:

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN YOU ARE ALONE??
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help,the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However,these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
A cardiologist says If everyone who sees this post shares it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life..
Rather than sharing jokes only please contribute by forwarding this info which can save a person's life..

Sometimes there’s some advice for life and love:

Regularly there are opportunities to help in rescuing a lost pet:
