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 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.

Why America isn't the greatest country in the world anymore.

Posted on August 18, 2014 at 12:29pm 10 Comments

I like to think the U.S.A. is the greatest country in the world. I have heard it said, over and over. However, when I look around at the events and systems that hold our culture together, I know it is not true ... at least not now ... maybe never. We started out as a slave holding nation, which gives lie to the Declaration of Independence; we were founded on the principles of white, male, landowners as citizens, when suggested U.S. isn't a nation of the free, and we only made citizens of…

Green Gold - Documentary by John D. Liu

Posted on August 18, 2014 at 11:53am 0 Comments

Human exploitation of nature's water, soil and sky results in degradation of each of these elements; they impact everyone on Earth, causing famines, droughts, diseases, pests, and all forms of political upheavals. Many people can see the degradation and work to reverse the manipulation of resources in harmful ways into observing the water, soil and sky to create a more livable, renewable, sustainable life. One such man is John D. Liu, a photographer. …

Accountability of charity organizations to the public

Posted on August 15, 2014 at 2:46pm 2 Comments

We are social animals, with a strong streak of caring for others, especially in time of need. People give generously, and sometimes denying themselves things they need. Those organizations that receive money from the public have an obligation to tell how every cent is spent, including how much it costs them for public relations and salaries.  

"Doug White, a nonprofit expert who directs the fundraising management program at Columbia University, praised the Red Cross for dropping its…

Glad to hear that. I am so so right now. I've battled depression my whole life but I did not hang myself like Robin Williams did. I take my meds. Nice to meet you Joan.

Hi Joan! Welcome to the DNA Tested Nonbelievers group. Feel free to tell us anything to everything about any DNA testing you have undergone or plan to undergo. All that you need do is start a discussion in the group about it. Of course you don’t have to. Welcome again and I hope you enjoy the group.

Hey, Joan.

Don't know if you subscribe to Delanceyplace.com, but I thought today's entry would be of particular interest to you.

To answer your query about my father--yes, he lives alone in a duplex adjacent (part of) to a retirement community. He does quite well. Lost his wife ( my mother) 13 yrs ago.

Silly me - I have to ask: have you seen this?

HEY, Joan!

I don't know whether you saw my piece about an article in our local newspaper or my participation in it, but I wanted to be sure you were aware of it.  Yeah, I'm showing off a bit [GRIN!], but I think it's pretty neat, too, as well as something you'd be interested in.

Thank you, =)

As a dyslexic, misspellings do not offend me, and occasionally they entertain me. XD

thanks, but I don't want to exchange private messages.  You seem like a nice person and I feel kindly towards you but I don't want to get into a private discussion.
