I guess it is under Ramon Ballard (don't know why)
There isn't a picture there, pictures of me are not permitted under the National Security Act.

It is way too frightening. The NSA and I made a deal, I won't try to sneak under my neighbors fence. and they wont charge me with frightening women and children while posting pics of me.

If you just need to see me, I do have a small pic of me posted on my blog. It is not for the feint of heart, as there is a nefarious rat in the background. The rat and Walt. OK the rat, Walt my daughter and myself.

I joined the Facebook thing a few weeks ago and still don't know what to do with it. All I see is a bunch of people whom I don't know making unconnected and meaningless comments. Anyone care to give me some suggestions?

LOL, Paul.  You nailed the essence of Facebook.  A bunch of my teen beta readers and my high school classmates found me.  Some authors are effective at using it as a marketing and networking tool.  I like watching the updates from my writer friends, but for the most part, you are right--meaningless, unrelated comments from people I don't know.

I didn't use my last name. so no high school classmates will find me. To bad it would be nice to know which ones haven't been put in a nursing home.

My computer belongs in a nursing home.  I try to log into facebook and it puts me in a sudoku website or weatherbug ... I really do wish I was joking about that ... another reason for recently changing email companies (see my post about the subject somewhere in the Query Help section.) zip it

yeah, you can close down your facebook site if your wife would like you to.
You go to the top of your profile screen and it has the link Settings.
its next to your name in the blue bar,
then click settings, and on the bottom it has an option to deactivate your account.
Hope that helps!

... but I did join Twitter and I've been a member of GoodReads for some time, if anyone wants to join me there. I find these sites less confusing, and they're not known for being dating services.

Joining Facebook was painful enough. The thought of joining Twitter makes me shudder.

I'm still trying to figure out how these sites can help network. I think GoodReads is the only one where I can find other writers to network with.

I have a several editors on my facebook friends list and a few other writers. I haven't quite figured it out but on his blog author J. A. Konrath discusses using it for marketing. I need to read his comments and try to figure it out. You might check that out.
