Out cottage pics in Summer vs Winter

Inspired by Bikram who has posted excellent pictures of winter 2010, I thought I will capture our snow covered cottage too. Hope you all like it. When ever I go there, the child in us (me and hubby) comes out and we play outside a lot (be it summer or winter). Same location, different time of the year.

Summer: Below picture is of the trailer which our previous owners left behind. We still need to get the registration done.

Summer: yard

Do souls check their Facebook accounts?

Do you think that I am asking an unreasonable funny question? Well, I am not. One of my acquaintances brother (18 years) passed away. I know the lady in question for sometime now and I came to know about this sad news though a common friend. So, I called her up and expressed my condolences. I was quite shocked when I heard from her that most of her brothers friends didn't call her. Instead most of them chose to leave message like, "May your Soul Rest in Peace", "You will be missed", "I am going to miss you buddy" etc in his Facebook page!!

I don't have any words to express how I feel. People leave "we will miss you" messages in his facebook? Is it the latest trend which I am not aware of?
That's why I am asking, are you aware of souls checking their facebook accounts?

Perhaps I am still a little old-fashioned and want personal visit or a personal phone call to the grieving parents/siblings and not facebook messages.
