Thanks Mark, I will take you up on that...I am currently searching for a group near me I just don't know where to start. I work in a day care that has a church backing so I cant be to open on facebook. If only ou could see my FB page I feel like I am litteraly surrounded by morons I am seriously thinking about deleting my account. Between my former xian school classmates, relatives and a few co-workers that I have friended It makes it more and more hard for me to hold my tongue. How would they like me throwing my dis-belifs in their faces, well they wouldn't that is for sure!
