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.

10 Ways to Stop Feeling Overworked and Overwhelmed BY JEFF HADEN

10 Ways to Stop Feeling Overworked and Overwhelmed BY JEFF HADEN

I saw a mother with a baby in one of those slings that holds a baby on the chest of the carrier and she had a little child who looked about two years old. Mother tried to look for her products on the shelves, keep an eye on the one walking beside her, and quieting the baby.

It reminded me of those…

My three children were 10 years old in 1974 when we arrived in Spokane and started a new life. We lived in a camper tent and enjoyed the summer, but when winter came upon us, the camper was very cold. My grandmother had just closed down her home and moved to my parent's home. She had no need for all the blankets she made over the years of raising her own five children and another family of five children whom she raised after their parents died in the flue pandemic of 1918. 

We piled…

...And What If I'm Wrong?

Posted on October 19, 2014 at 10:30pm 8 Comments

I am an atheist. I do not see any compelling evidence that god exists. The evidence presented to me by preacher, teacher, friends and family refers me to expressions of personal feelings, of euphoria, or some tell of how elevated they feel.

Response to my questions about other evidence usually results in referral to miracles they heard about; the reports turn out to be second or third hand. Too many claim recovery of some bad thing in their life in answer to prayer. All too often,…

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!

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.

Dear Joan please visit my site www.janbodh.webs.com to know what i have to say.
At 5:22pm on September 20, 2014, JanBodh said…
Dear Joan, I was a follower of Hinduism about 2 years ago, since my birth. I am 33 now. I graduated in science and later on studied management. As a child i had firm belief in God and his powers. In our Hindu culture people are very superstitious they teach young ones like that. I have been through some bad patch concerning my health but only modern medicine saved me. My father is a veterinarian and gave me freedom of thought since childhood, he had a close friend at job whom he admired a lot and is an atheist. But my father is not an atheist, he says he believes just because he copies my grandfather who was a firm follower of Hinduism.I feel gifted to be in a family where no one imposes religion on me. Since school days i used to say that the scientists and discovers were real Gods and my parents never ridiculed me.So i calculated myself to be an atheist.
As far as my statement is concerned i can't think of a day, actually afraid of a day, when i have reached the almighty and have known every thing, sitting besides him thinking that there is nothing left, this is the end. I felt scared of that, that if i meet almighty it will be that: i with him or i be him( when i unite with the almighty) what will i do then, what will i think of then....I know this is not possible so i believe in infinity which is the truth about universe; i.e. It's infinite and ever expanding. If we have an almighty it will be the end...the wall of universe, but universe has no wall
