    Its so true what you say about Facebook!!! I hate it!!! Yet like a lost soul, I look at it everyday. I’ts so meaning less. My mate, Steve Lucas(musician), I read his posts which have gone from brief updates to him “pontificattting”‘ about his views on life. Its all bullshit! I want to drop out of Facebook because I am so sick of all these people who wantto be added as “friends”, IF THAT WAS THE CASE WOULDNT THEY KNOW ME NOW!
    You can be a very powerful person! You are smart, and interesting, I look forward to the litle pieces between the lines from other people. Social media is not that important to me but I lok forward to anything you have to say!!! I hope we get to meet again in the future and I hope you DO get to be a political force. I hope all this makes sense to you! I am so unsure of myself these days.
    Best wishes and love to you family. Long may you reighn. Love from Ron Howe. ps L-C you are so smart, it frightens me!!
