    Thumbs up Facebook??

    Hey Everyone,

    We had a Firefighter Facebook page that eventually got over 20,000 likes, but it was shut down when I deployed overseas because I didnt have time to keep it up. I am now trying to create a new page and a website will follow soon.....Please go Like and Share on your page!

    It will feature Fire Service news, Videos, Photos, Job Info and lots more.

    Thank you all and Stay Low, Stay Safe!

    :-)

    But I haven't got a facey-space page.

    Wouldn't having a facey-space page cancel out all of the man credits I have acquired by growing what is arguably the worst moustache known in the civilized world? I worry about things like that.

    Okay, let's try this again....


    It's 2013, there's a bounty of pictures of scantily clad women on Facebook, you can follow the latest news of your favorite adult beverage, and Playboy even has a FB page!

    Not that I know personally, but I have been told that there are tons of pictures and videos of scantily clad, or not clad at all women, engaged in many different activities, all over the internet. The advantage of those sites is you don't have to read about someone's favorite vegetarian lasagna recipe, how much their life sucks, the crappy day they had at work, or some sappy schite of how in love they are, to view it.

    One of our local talk radio masters regularly states: if you are over 35, and have a facebook page you need to reassess your life.

    I shut mine down a few years back, best decision ever.

    No Facebook here either. This website and a couple others are good enough for this troglodyte.

    I will admit that on occasion I have cruised by some facey spaces of members on this site. I use my wife's account, sorta undercover 300 pound ninja style, clever eh? Anyway, fire service guys have WAY more interesting My Books than the local assistant librarian's. Some even talk about fire AND guns, no loss of man credits there I would imagine.
    I could inundate the unwashed masses with nuggets of wisdom from the likes of Lt. McCormack, Chief Halton, Paul Gleason, and the like, instead of those dumb inspirational messages about chocolate and how its okay to be unemployed. I could even have funny pictures of cats on my page. Well, firefighting cats WITH guns so as not to lose my probationary man-card.
    The fire service is about service to our fellow man.
