libertà

Post by bartigue » Wed Jun 05, 2019 2:22 pm

Deleted my facebook account. I cannot think of a single use for facebook anymore, I have reconnected with everyone I want to reconnect with and found out why we were disconnected to begin with. It is a horrible place to try to help people with cars. I figured with the looming election season going to last from July 2019 - December 2020 I really couldn't stand another season of facebook.

So if you need help, well, mirafiori.

Do you think it's horrible because there are so many people there? I always try to refer people there to Mira.

Congrats Brad!

I gave it up several years ago, and never looked back.

So any chance you are going to make it to Oregon this year?

I have yet to sign up for a Facebook, Twitter or any other social media account. All I hang out on are car forums. But would that still be considered social media?

For some reason I can't get past the idea that Facebook is a just place to air your dirty laundry or for people who are allot about themselves and like to post daily photos or what they had for lunch or how bad they felt when they got out of bed.

The dates for Oregon almost always conflict with the start of school in Atlanta, which ends up being a busy week for us. This year though the stars may align, I have a client in Oregon and school starts on the 12th or something like that.

Yup. I do email, a little texting to the kids, MIRA, Xweb and of course, local Craigslist. Everything you need and nothing you don't.

Get off the computer and get back in the garage, your Fiats need you.

Facebook is just a place to look while waiting for your latte to be brewed.....

so what is the august event mentioned? is it something open to all and worth driving for 8 hours to attend?

cheers
