My nephew likes to tweak noses.  :-)   He signed up for a FB account long ago for the sole purpose of seeing if he could have an account that absolutely could NOT be found.  And he did it.  I have no idea what his FB user name is, he never comes up as a suggested friend and he says that he never gets any friend suggestions.  He also can't be found on any search.

If you want to have an anonymous account, I can ask him what he did .. which I kinda/sorta think is that he turned off every, single, stinking thing that was even remotely involved in tracking or suggestions.

Do you have to use a real phone?  If not, I suggest 555-1212, with some area code .. yours or not.  That's a universal phone number that is  used for fictitious telephone numbers in North American television shows, filmsvideo games, and other media in order to prevent practical jokers and curious callers from bothering telephone subscribers and organizations by calling telephone numbers they see in works of fiction.

And obviously, on your new FB account, don't accept any friends.  :-)

Ha! your anonymity might have lasted longer if you had a new phone and different computer. so many ways of tracing us these days!
oh i will say I have miss typed my phone number and they know it!

I remember you took me to the Cabbage Rose. Sorry to hear they are closing.  Running a small business is hard.

On the FB and other social media stuff. They can find you. I think our cell phones have a way of knowing what we say, they can track us, know everything we do online.

not to complain too much, but this site is too quiet sometimes, there are so few of us left these days.  And work is quiet too - working from home and there are only 5 of us left working.  quiet quiet quiet.  I needed a more chatter. I only re-joined the applique group and a Texas quilters group.

I hear ya ... but how much do you really want to hear about my scrapbooking on this quilting site?  LOL!

When I am working on my quilting stuff, I do talk about it with y'all.  :-)

Well in my defense I was on the road all day. I am back in Colorado and can get back to your quilt Monday. I had not planned to be gone so long but life happend.

No deadline. Glad you had safe travels. How long a drive is it?

I know there is no deadline but I just want to see how I comes together. It sure is pretty and I am enjoying the process DBIL keeps looking at it to see what I am doing. He really likes how it is lookin too.
