You are absolutely right Ruth, with so many social network options, this one has lagged behind for being the newest addition to the family! I must say everyone has been super friendly, something I haven't seen anywhere else. Keep up the great job!
Aloha Ruth. Thanks for the invite but one reason I haven't posted much is just very busy with trying to keep up with all of my interests. My primary interest is in making miniature scenes (of a rather dark nature) and growing bamboo and trying to keep up with my yard and even sometimes my house. I am around and could get active during the summer when not as much is going on around me.
Having grown up to be the kind of person my father doesn't want me hanging around with, we have had no contact for over 10 years. Broken home doesn't really describe my history. Diced is a better word.
As a happily married gay man (one of the fortunate ones who has remaned legally married after Prop 8) I have a partner who shares my Freethinker values if not my rabid personality. .If you ask the state of California, Brian and I have been married for about three years (since California refuses to acknowledge the 32 years that went before our "legal" marriage.
