Keeping track of Facebook posts

I’ve been trying to find a way to look at my older Facebook posts, because there are lots of links to interesting articles, videos and conversations that are getting further and further away as time passes. As far as I know, the only way to see last month’s post (or even last year’s) is to keep clicking “older posts” at the bottom of the page and that is an interminable process. If anyone knows of a better way, I would love to know!

Anyway, what I’m going to do, as time passes in the futurely direction, is post those links to article and videos here, so I can find them again when I need them. The bonus is that it will save you, my readers, the time of surfing the net for this kind of cool stuff. One stop shopping! Yay! (You might want to subscribe to be notified when new blogs are posted … over there, on the top right corner of the page.)

So today’s Facebook posts are (so far, anyway … I’ll add more as the day goes on, as I find them):

    Your typical friendly Canadian. A beaver on the highway at the Canada US border, welcoming drivers to Canada. He got away fine (and he’s not rabid!).

    This video was created in order to show a side of Israel that the media doesn’t show. All across Israel, both Arabs and Jews are living together peacefully.
  • I hope I’m still alive on that day in the future when we can look back and be dubious that this sort of thing was even as issue. Bravo to these companies!

    More businesses are reaching into their own pockets to pay for an extra tax that gay employees owe on their partners’ health insurance.
  • This guy is freakin’ AMAZING!!! His portraits are stunningly accurate!

    CBS News video: Blind artist paints with imagination – As part of our continuing series “American Spirit,” Don Teague profiles John Bramblitt, a blind artist who uses his imagination to transform canvases.
  • NOTE TO (and FROM) SELF: You are constantly creating your future. There is no such thing as a moment in time that is NOT creative. What are you thinking about right now?
  • I’m looking for “good news” this morning (which can be quite a challenge, ya know) and found this.

    Freedom Riders who were attacked in Montgomery on May 20, 1961, returned 50 years later to be hailed as heroes and have a museum dedicated at the old bus station where they were confronted by an angry white mob.
  • Surely they could have found a more peaceful, cooperative way to work this out.

    news.yahoo.com

    Frustration over her physically impaired daughter’s medical care led Maryanne Godboldo to lash out at what she considered state interference and into a 12-hour standoff when Detroit police came to take the girl away.
  • Just finished watching Persepolis. What a great movie! If you get the chance, take the time to see it.

    www.amazon.com

    Persepolis is the poignant story of a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It is through the eyes of precocious and outspoken nine-year-old Marjane that we see a people’s hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power forcing the veil on women and imprisoning …
