this just ain't right

I have a lot I wish to update on, all sorts of thoughts (threads), emotions, etc., about Dad, about Mom, about my precious M........ entries written in my head but who has time to get online here and write them up?  (Actually, I did add a medical update in regards to my father, at the end of my entry entitled, Dad.  It seemed to me to fit best there, all in one spot.  Dad ) 

Entries coming and going, anyway, at the moment, so who is here to tell us about it, keep us apprised of all things AOL journal-wise?  Except, aol in its infinite "wisdom," not only let go Jeff some time back, which was also ridiculous, but now, Joe?  He's personable, professional, doing a fantastic job and helping us paying subscribers (yeah, I have dialup), a community service and a human connection with their vast system.  I hate that AOL is laying off employees yet again.  But, JOE?  Why him?  UGH.  Wishing you all the best, Joe.  Actually, wishing well to all of those being laid off.

Twofer Tuesday: Missing Entries And Missing Editor

You can go here to wish him well and express your frustrations (well, hopefully limited to your frustrations in regards to having him laid off or about aol journals inadequacies, not really your own inadequacies). 

UPDATE:  Please note below in Kath's comment (#2) what Joe's personal blog is:

Dumb Things I Have Done Lately  Sounds as if Joe is going to try for the healthy attitude route:)  Being laid off sucks, been there done that and it's weird, but it does open up the possibilities.  So, hopefully, it'll go well.

  2. Hey sweetie, still keeping y'all in my prayers.

    I agree, it stinks about Joe.  Hey, found where he's blogging now here



  3. AOL is just getting so stupid....and I'm tired of having to call AOL only to get someone in India claiming that his name is George...what do they think I was just born yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!......UGH.......June

  4. I feel the same way you do. Joe was always there to help all of us. I don't like it when aol does this kind of stuff. He was here for us and was more than happy to help as well. Hugs to you,
