Locked Out of Facebook

I've been locked out of my Facebook account since August 19. The site states my account has been suspended due to suspicious activity - perhaps phishing. I have no idea what I could have done to deserve this... but that's not the problem.

My problem is that I've emailed them repeatedly and am not getting customer service to correct the problem. You see, there's a way to reactivate my account, but their script isn't working right.

Yesterday I found their mailing address and wrote them a letter via snail mail to explain the problem. I wonder if that will get someone's attention.

At this point I'm thinking that if I ever do get access to my account again, the first thing I'll do is delete it!

Battle for My Veggies

My garden veggies are coming in - but a huge army of snails apparently think they need the tomatoes and cucumbers more than I do! I've had to resort to phosphorus - hardly a happy thing. However, I'm not going to sit idly by and watch all these veggies I've watered every morning since June go to waste.

We've got to learn to produce our own food supply. Watching over this garden has become a way of life.

Looking For Work

Seriously, I'm looking for work, but I find it a bit frustrating when there aren't many businesses in my small town, and my phone calls go to people living far away in towns I couldn't possibly commute to. If I found a job there, I'd have to relocate, and live in a strange place. So my motivation is shaky. None-the-less I make the phone calls to see who might be hiring, and whether I might want to work for them.

Internet Radio

I just spent the last 70 minutes listening to an internet radio show and honestly, don't believe I've enjoyed it much. It keeps me from being able to write, and I'm reduced to the few activities I can manage without using my brain in productive ways. I really need to recover from time wasting!

The "Take Action" File

I've labeled a file, "Take Action" ... and am sitting here wondering why it is so hard to actually accomplish these little tasks. I think my main problem has been a lack of organization. Maybe the new file will help focus my attention on things that need to be done. I've also got an ongoing to-do list on a spreadsheet that's helping me focus, if only on things that I honestly don't have time to do.

My commitment this year is to focus on one project at a time. First on my list was Literature For Kids - a domain name I've owned for years, that has had several previous incarnations. The most recent is a Drupal CMS. I've moved all my children's-literature specific postings to this domain now. I wanted twenty articles there, but it looks okay with just ten. I think I'll move on to something else now.

Next on my list is 1200 Calorie Vegetarian Diet. Maybe working on this site will inspire me to get back on my diet! It would be a good idea. (sigh) I don't suppose today's zucchini/garlic/onion* sandwich qualified... because I fried the zucchini in olive oil. Perhaps a deli sandwich would have been a better idea. Anyhow, I need to devise about ten suggested vegetarian menus for 1200 calories daily. It couldn't be too hard; in fact, I expect it could be a lot of fun.

* Just a brief brag: the zucchini and garlic came from my vegetable garden! ;) Now if I could just get some tomatoes to turn from green to red so I can eat them! I love onion and tomato sandwiches.

Besides taking action on my site-of-the-moment, I need to promote my Squidoo lenses, and do everything on my guilt list. Sad to say, it is kind of long at the moment, and all those items weigh heavily on my sub-conscious. I really should put that list first!

Okay, all that, plus a "Take Action" file which contains scraps of paper I came across while de-cluttering yesterday. These items should be added to the guilt list.

Oh, I have so much to do!
