Do you decorate outside?

Are you hosting or going somewhere this year?

Big group or small one?

How is shopping going?

Absolutely.

Wow, I am sure many others would not think so. A "few" dollars when donating would be maybe $3, not what you donated.

t all depends on how securely -- and how often -- you lock down your fb page.  FB has a nasty habit of switching back to default modes periodically.  The best use of facebook is to assume that everyone everywhere has access to anything you post.   I'm sure you've taught your kids that.

I know how facebook works but thanks for your lesson lol.

Yeah, well, as I said, if we get hit up by AMT, as we have the last several years, it's all irrelevant anyway.

Not sure when you said that in this thread but that is not the point. How do you consider that amount a "few" dollars?

The info is not necessarily correct because, as Bord stated, money dropped in kettle is not reportable because there is no receipt.   Second of all, I was not referring to your STATE - unless you have observed the whole state and their kettle practices.  Third, it was not meant to be a factual statement. It was a snark.

Oh I know you were being snarky. That is why I gave you factual evidence Laughing

Weren't we talking about the few dollars that I donated to JDRF?  That's all that's relevant here.

You DO know that "few" means a small number. You consider THAT a small number what you donated?

They wouldn't necessarily have to see YOUR page or the page created for your kid.   I've never seen Kristina's or Katie's page ... but yet I know their names and some basic info because Melissa has mentioned them, tagged them, and they have responded to Melissa's statuses, etc. 

And? Bord is not friends with Jam's on fb. YOU are friends with this girl Melissa, WHO you see her posts, pictures, tags, etc. Bord would have to go through someone who WAS friends with Jams (it is called researching, you know) and friends with her to find out this type of info.
