About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is too short to dwell on the past. One can be good without god! My whole family proves it.

"sometimes, I just miss the crutches"

Posted on October 25, 2014 at 12:09pm 3 Comments

This is an answer I gave to a friend who wrote to me, "sometimes, I just miss the crutches". 

Of course you miss the experiences you had as a christian. There was community, music, probably some fun and games, Interesting stories, probably made interesting because they were myths. We all enjoy a good myth, especially if it involved murdering thy neighbor or bashing babies heads against the stone walls, or thrusting a sword through the bellies of babies or pregnant mothers. 

OH!…

Treatise on Morality.

Posted on October 23, 2014 at 10:30am 1 Comment

Every time I hear, "How can you be moral without god?", I know what the bible tells of god's behaviors and the behaviors of followers of religion. I see those who preach, teach and practice hate. Battered women who try to live under the influence of religion, Christian and Islam, learn the things that will maintain and perpetuate family violence. If you have doubts, just look at the morality of god's acts in the bible and morality of families living according to biblical teachings. I want…

Thanks Joan.  Your comment about our insults helping him out was a very helpful reminder.

One of the most inspiring people I know. <3 Have a good one, Joan. Everyone should have a flower cupcake... :)

Based what I hear on the news, diabetes may not have long to live!  I heard a news story somewhere about a researcher using stem cells to create cells which generate insulin and can regulate sugar levels in the blood!

It may be a while, but one day, I'd love to toast you with a Spanish Coffee, such the formula I described, and have you enjoy one as well!  We'll figure it out!

At 9:56pm on October 10, 2014, Loren Miller said…

Okay, Joan ... try this on for size:

Start with a brandy snifter or stemmed glass coffee mug (ideally).  Ingredients:

  • One jigger Kahlua
  • One jigger Cointreau
  • Hot black coffee
  • Whipped cream on top
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over all

Trust me ... it is the best damned dessert coffee you ever had!

At 5:59pm on October 10, 2014, Loren Miller said…

Joan, thinking of that cup of java you offered me in your post, are you a fan of "dessert coffees?"  There is a classic one I enjoy a lot, and if you like them as well, I'll pass on the recipe!

As always, I enjoyed reading you comment on my blog post regarding "simple = happy". I, too have some pretty outdated clothes and furniture. Unlike you, however, I rearrange my furnished constantly! It's something I inherited from my mother. Hope you're doing well.

Thank you for your welcome. We aren't all crazy here in Texas as the news would lead one to believe.

Thanks for your welcome Joan. Salutation from across the pond. Only just recently heard of the Atheist Nexus. It seems a nice space.

The pictures are of the inner harbor area of Baltimore. I have a lot more that I want to post but I don't have them organized yet. They are of the waterfront communities of Canton and Fell's Point in Baltimore plus more marina pictures. 

At 6:47am on September 21, 2014, John Jubinsky said…

Yes I've been on board it. It is the USS Constellation of 1854 which is a twin to Old Iron Sides. The pictures are of the inner harbor area of Baltimore. I took some new ones and am trying to organize them all. I eventually intend to post about 30 more of waterfront cafes, restaurants and festivals not to mention more marina pictures. The building behind the boat called Chesapeake is a National Aquarium.
