well as i am sure you are all too well aware aol journals will finish the 31st of october.theres been so much written already on so many journals,that jland is over,what will we do,blogspot is a poor alternative, and jland is dead. well NO IT BLOODY WELL ISN'T. for a start magic smoke promise our journals will be saved over to blogspot if you dont know about it heres a link Blogger: Create Blogger Account go,look,join,start a new journal. heed magic smokes advice and dont call your new journal exactly the same name as your old hence i can be found now at caring n sharing ( note the subtle difference???) lol the url is http://mortonlake-caringnsharing.blogspot.com and it took me ooooo all of 20 minutes to set up the account,select what my blog will look like,write a quick entry,edit my profile, (complete with sexy new pic ladies!!! lol ) and that is that.caring and sharing lives again. for those of you interested,sue,catslittertray has started a group on facebook called Facebook | not wanted on voyage anymore please come and join us if you wish,yes you will have to join facebook,but its ok. you wont be mugged.lol yours truly is an admin moderator along with sue jeannette yasmin leigh and a.d. for some reason sue named me as gardening guru.lol. at this moment we number 20.please come and join us.its just somewhere we can leave messages,chat,and swap stories.
jland was never about journals. it was never all the tags,pics,sidebars. it is US. the writers,the people BEHIND our journals. we are still here. and while we can still all keep in touch,in whatever way suits you all best,jland will always remain. new,more complicated maybe? bit scary. but it lives on. forget blame,forget bitterness that it happened. accept it. because if you DON'T jland WILL die.
for a while i doubt i shall be writing many entries on either this or the new blog,but my first birthday on journals is on october 22nd. i hope to write one last entry on this journal on or around that date. a cake would be nice. lol
as for my life, i had a letter from the carers who will look after mum when i have a day off,unfortunately they are fully booked. not heard from either of the social workers about it,so im not sure what is happening. i have also been refused invalidity and mobility allowances. expected that,i was warned we will have to appeal. its normal apparently. i think they hope people will just throw the letter in the fire and go away,i would many more do. luckily i have a good disabled advisor. she is coming to see me next wednesday. and will fill out the necessary form for me. i know,in my heart i bloody deserve this allowance,for years i have been in pain. i just never knew the benefit was there now,i think well why not me?? many more get it some not as bad as me. we will see.
whatever happens,if any of you want to mail me at any time,please do so. firstname.lastname@example.org been my home for nearly 5 years. and will be for manymore. whatever its faults,aol is the only isp i would use.why?? because my friends are here. take care jland. i shall see you again . mort.
