I really wanted to embed this, but it wouldn’t cooperate so here’s the link. Very inspiring! This is a social media platform and mission that I can fully support – listen to the CEO’s statement and you will see why. https://tv.gab.com/channel/a/view/keep-the-faith-get-on-gabcom-5ff907c24468dbdab3e4bf16

Please don’t leave…

…but it you do, I won’t miss you enough to leave my favorite playground… As I posted on my chat (see this blog’s home page) by way of introduction to this post, so many people that claimed they didn’t want me to leave Twitter and FB (especially the latter) haven’t shown that they’ve missed me …
