Goodbye Prosebox

Today is a sad but not surprising day. I’ve known for some time now that Dan was struggling to keep Prosebox going. It was just obvious. I noticed that the site was down for a while and when it came back up it was sluggish. That’s when I saw his announcement about closing PB down in a couple weeks. I’ll miss it, of course, but this is why I back things up on other sites as I know that anything can happen at any time. Not sure where most people will flock to or how many of my followers will keep in touch elsewhere. That’s up to them and it doesn’t really matter because I’m going to write somewhere no matter what. I did give them the option to keep in touch, however, and provided my Blogger and Facebook links. I’ll be here and on Blogger as well as my-diary.

A lot of people are upset now, and yes, it is kind of sad. Reminds me of the demise of the old Kiwibox. But as they say, all good things come to an end. Unless someone can come to the rescue, PB is coming to an end.

The lady with the artificial foot from Oregon is now moving into the house across from J & C. Glad they have quiet vehicles, though I’m not sure how many people/vehicles live there. There’s a red SUV with Oregon plates and there’s a white SUV with California plates. Earlier there was a Budget rental truck. Same company and size we moved down with back in the summer of 2007.

Went out walking but this time the app didn’t do the greatest job of tracking my route. Tom and I were talking about how cool it would be if people were microchipped. I think it would be way cool if I could see not only the location I was in but the room in that location I was in as well. Our guess is that people will be a microchipped someday, be it mandatory or not. Right now people are too paranoid. I guess there are that many people up to no good. But if you’re like us with nothing to hide, then you don’t care who knows where you are. 🙂

Although I know I’ve been dreaming, my dreams have been too vague to remember them enough to write about them.

The older I get, the more I realize just how much aging sucks. Other than the wisdom you acquire, it all sucks shit big-time. 20 years ago I mostly had just the allergies and asthma to deal with. Now I also have a dead thyroid, rashes, shitty vision, thinning hair, gray hair, dry skin, TMJ, a deformed ear that is getting uglier by the minute, a hopelessly fat body, crowns and bridges, and joints that have lost a lot of flexibility. It chills me to think what life may be like in 20 more years!

Things aren’t new and exciting like they once were and you tend to have a bleaker outlook on life when you get older as well. Maybe that’s because we’re smarter and so we’re more realistic. When we’re younger, we don’t quite see the world for what it really is and therefore we see all kinds of endless possibilities. We tend to live in the moment and not worry so much about the future, and when we do worry about the future, it isn’t usually in the way we worry about the future when we’re older.

  1. I came here as well. I never heard of kiwi box, but I did look up free diary stuff and this was the best. The rest had that God awful zenga or whatever it was called diary layout. Or they were mobile apps, and just awful. They had a gross feel to them you know. This seems easy enough to use but the notes are like old school open diary where you have to go to their diary and reply on their newest entry. It’s a throw back. We need a chapter or book section but there is a suggestion box.

  2. LOL, I know what you mean. I never cared for her WordPress or Zanga. sucks too. Anyway, good to see you here!

  3. I would never pay to purge my brain of its thoughts. I’ve been writing for free since 1987 and that’s the way it stays. 🙂 This site is lacking in features like a search feature and other things but at least it’s easier to add graphics here for those of us who like to add color and decorate our entries.
