"I'm sorry that you feel so defensive and defiant about your diet. Why would these Vietnamese co-workers feel ashamed of their enjoyment of eating dog meat as a delicacy. "Different strokes for different folks." Wouldn't you…"
"This is so interesting. Definitely want to spend the time going through the many NPR stories relating to this topic. But that's the problem - TIME. I'll get back to this, now that I know where to find it. Thanks for posting. Great stuff."
"I'm going to copy down all the films you listed and look them up. I've watched very few foreign films since I took a film class in college, and have to admit I know nothing much about foreign directors. Hopefully, I'll be able to…"
"Sydni, I'm so glad you posted the video of, The Man Who Planted Trees. I haven't seen this favorite true story in twenty years. Wow. Have to get my kids to watch it with me.
And I also enjoyed the Wedding Dance video. What a delight.…"
"I loved these videos and can't believe that these kids are so talented and involved in promoting this important global issue. Wow. My sons are great on the computer, so maybe next year I'll convince them to take on this challenge. What a…"
""Flirtatious people have always seemed to me to be insincere people who might have something to hide, or perhaps were just on the prowl (not that I am opposed to casual sex), or somehow as being disingenuous."

"We've always had pets...dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, fancy rats, fish snakes, lizards, spiders...
The one animal always in the house is a cat...the rest have been with us at various times.
I firmly believe that a cat is a great way for a child…"
"I agree that having pets as a child is a great thing. My kid's dad grew up in a home without pets...his family were farm folk that only saw pets as utilitarian (cats are for keeping down the mice, dogs guard the barns, etc). One of the first…"
My family consists of a supportive husband, my two boys, two dogs, a cat, and an aquarium of assorted tropical fish, that too-often need replacing... All of us are animal lovers, feed the birds, the ducks, geese, squirrels and we never kill bugs in our home, just catch them and remove them to the outdoors.

Greetings, Rose! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
One of my friends got it in her head that she wanted to vacation in NC during the month of August. She concocted a plan and now I am committed to a vacation to NC from Aug 20-30. Please tell me the weather has cooled down. We will be spending most of the time on the coast.
BTW Most of the southern gals I knew were not atheists. Good for you.
