Czech archaeologists have found a "transsexual" or "third gender grave"

Soul Surfer Movie FYI - a New Genre in the Mainstream

A movie came out this weekend (Soul Surfer) telling the true life story of Bethany Hamilton, a girl who followed her dream and became a professional, champion surfer after losing her arm in a shark attack. I went to see it today, and while it is very inspirational be forewarned that there is a lot of credit given to God, Jesus and faith in the Lord for overcoming her disability.  In fact, a couple of the previews had me on edge.…See More

Meh, I forgot the tail end of that last comment.  Yeah, lunch sounds like it would be fun sometime.  It's just difficult to coordinate with stopping off some random time that I happened to be there, for work.

Among other things, I'll usually have to drive to Winston-Salem, do the hour or so of work that needs needs to be done, then drive back to get to another client.

Sometimes, I finish my day with a run to Winston-Salem, then can head straight home, after I finish the work on site.  On those days, I can just use my GPS to calculate when I'd be home and my day would end, plus figure my final mileage for the day.  After that, I can pretty much just hang out for as long as I like, before heading back home.

Yeah, it's just a little rough for planning, with my work schedule.  I generally know that I'm going somewhere about 20 minutes before I'm headed out the door to go there.  Where I'm going and what I'm doing when I get there is determined by the trouble tickets that come in from the clients.

 

What stage is your daughter at, anyway?  Is she just beginning to encounter religious kids at school or something, or is she still in the preschool age range?

I'm kind of curious about the subject, myself.  I've been trying to figure out exactly what made me grow up a skeptic and atheist, despite my Catholic upbringing.  There are so many potential, little influences which I can trace back to.  It's hard to figure out what may have had the biggest effects.

Oh, hey.  Just saw you join one of my groups.  The Triangle group has a meetup about secular parenting, coming up soon.  We've got a handful of families in our groups who might have some useful ideas for you.

 

I'm not sure how active the Triad group is.  We have several people from Greensboro who come to a few Triangle events, in part because the Triad group isn't very active, I think.  They usually come for the pool/clubhouse parties that the organizer of one of the Triangle groups hosts.  We have 50 or 60 people at most of those.

 

I'm over in Winston Salem pretty often, actually.  I do mobile tech-support for BCBSNC, for our work-from-home employees.  Many of those came from the Madison Park office, in central Winston-Salem.  I was in Rural Hall, yesterday, and Advance and Greensboro, today.
