LOL Smiley Face..Happy Birthday Emoticons :-)

Today 30 years ago the first emoticon was invented by Professor Scott Fahlman

According to a 2007 report by CNN, Fahlman first posted the emoticon in a message on one of Carnegie Mellon’s online bulletin boards at 11.44 a.m. on September 19, 1982. 


According to Professor Fahlam “I think they (modern Emoticons and Emoji)are ugly, and they ruin the challenge of trying to come up with a clever way to express emotions using standard keyboard characters. But perhaps that’s just because I invented the other kind.”


So as you go through out your day: emailing, texting, Facebooking, Tweeting, Instagraming, and who knows what else. Remember you would NEVER have a smiley if it wasn’t for Professor Scott Fahlman. 😛

~Love, Peace, and SOOOOOUL!!!

This is a place for me to reflect on things that are happening in my life.  I might just be one person in this big world of ours, but I'm one person that's on a mission... Life:: the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual. Life is a funny thing.  It is forever changing and as it changes so will I.

You may ALWAYS speak your mind here! :)
