I hope everyone is now beginning to enjoy the summer. It finally feels like summer here, as we have had so much cool weather and rain.

I have succumbed to the social networking crowd and now have a Facebook account. Actually I am enjoying using it much more that I figured I would. I see why so many people have accounts an share info with friends and family and of course there are the games, networks, groups, and all the other custom applications built in Facebook.

While on the subject of social networking sites, I also have an account with Linkedin. It is more of a business related social networking site and with many business related networking features. Give it a try, especially if you are a consultant or looking to expand your business or business network of associates. It has helped many people find jobs, get new accounts, and locate business partners. I have used it for checking with others in my industry on what things work and what doesn’t.

It is time once again to remind all of you that the National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.
