Greetings, Dear Reader! Welcome to M&M’s Musings!! We’re so delighted to have you find your way here. Twitter somewhat confounded us at first, but a fellow user pointed toward this ‘Thoughtful Twitter Use Manifesto‘. If you don’t have time to read the whole article, we believe it can best be summed up like this: change Twitter’s question of ‘What’s Happening?’ to ‘What can I tell you that will make your life better?’ It’s an idea we do our best to live by. A little while back we did a post on our own foray into social networking, which you can read here.
What exactly is M&M’s Musings? We are Marcia and Mike, one a psych major, one a biologist type person, both writers, one a poet and one a photographer… the list goes on. We have a wide range of things that interest us, and we do our best to share what we find with others. On the left side of this page you’ll find our Categories; browse through them and stop to read wherever you like! Be sure to leave us a comment to let us know you popped in for a visit. In exchange, we offer you a hug!

UPDATE: June 2, 2019 – On the advice of a friend we went through and deleted all of the broken links. Keep in mind this page is now ten years old and as such the number of new apps greatly outweigh the ones we removed! It’s interesting to re-read the Forbes article about life in 2020 as we’re six months away and the article was written in 2010. Please consider this page archived; if you find something of interest here, great! But we won’t be updating it any more. 🙂 We’re still on Twitter, though! Come and find us! And Instagram, and Tumblr…
