A Look at What's Trending on Facebook

Nothing much is happening this week-I'm on vacation and hung up on writing my Master's Project.  It's the chapter I've been dreading so I am getting really good at procrastinating.  So here are my thoughts on 5 recent stories on my Facebook news feed.

Disneyland/Disneyworld.   Everyone is there this vacation.  I was supposed to be there for a bachelorette party.  I couldn't go.  If I did I would have pictures about my trip posted on Facebook.  I just hope there are no measles.  I also wonder how people never run into each other there.
Hollister had a city hall meeting.  Whatever they call those meetings.  I've never heard of anyone actually going to one.  People are upset because they think we should enforce old laws before making new ones.  The police department is getting a new dog!  That's fun.  I wonder what they will name him?

My friend posted this.  I do love horses.  They are so regal.  If you walk down our block to the end and then make a right and take that to the end-(are you lost yet)?  You will come up to this place in the middle of houses where these beautiful horses live.  And they jump fences-Long Island style.  They aren't rodeo horses.  I like that because I always think of home.  Not that I ever had horses.
Another friend posted this.  I laugh because I literally am having a lot of those lately.  Like at The Grove where the waiter chased me to my seat with my salads.   Or like the million other scenes that could be on Seinfeld happen every day.  I can't even talk about them all because they probably involve some of you.

An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

1. Don't change horses
until they stop running.

Thought this was insightful. And it did not take Common Core for them to learn these.

I totally stole these.  I didn't write them.  But they are super funny.  Number 17?  Duh obviously

So friends that is what is happening on Facebook and my super thoughts about them.
