Liking and disliking

You can "like" or "unlike" anything on Facebook, including pictures of yourself and political comments that either delight or disgust you. But most of the time, you don't get a chance to say what you really like or dislike. Those things just aren't among the choices. It occurred to me today when the sun really came out, instead of floating like a ghost behind the gloomy March sky, that making a list of likes (or dislikes) on a sort of impulse basis (no deep thoughts here) would be fun. Add-ons permitted at any time. Discards, too. So here's a start: and the add-ons, as of 3/10/2013, have begun! Just tucked them in there ....

Hmm. This is kind of fun. I think I'll plan on the add-ons.
