Some of my favorite tweets and comments of the night: These were posted about the “drinking game” you see above: That’s too many rules for me. We just have 3 and it’s bad!

Author, Blogger, Writer ... Whatever, Lord Just Help Me!
The Writer’s Prayer   Open my mind, Lord. Grant me the talent to write with clarity and style, so my words go down rich and smooth, like fine wine, and leave my reader thirsty for more.

What Does Facebook Consider Spam?
“Oh, Marti. Think of biology. Sex is pleasurable and good… because nature wants people to have children! It’s why food is good, too… so that we have life!

Bumper to Bumper on the Communication Highway
Navigating social media when you’re not exactly a twenty-something (*cough*) can be a challenge.  Because of my blog, I’ve learned to use WordPress,  Facebook, twitter, TweetDeck and Google +!  Whew!  Stand back.  I think my brain is going to explode!

Religion Versus Retail:  How Are You Preparing for Advent?
