I have the lowest package available (DISH) with no ESPN, etc. Suits me fine. In fact, I'm considering dumping all TV programming. I only have it on to keep me company. That and Big Bang Theory--my fave!
You should sing more, certainly listen to more music. I'm lucky to have good radio stations playing classical music (and jazz). The radio is on all day. I also have many records and tapes. What do you do when you "hang around the house"? Can't you listen to music? By the way, I am lean and healthy, but I work at it very diligently. I'm going to reach 100 if it kills me!!
Thanks for the comment, I.S. Singing is therapeutic, as is music (one enjoys). I don't ever remember singing a solo, however. I'm impressed. I think we have much in common--divorced, gardening, science, music...
I used to have an all black kitty. But he died. So now I need to get another pet. I love the black cats - hope to get more of them sometime soon I hope. Did you get your cats? I know you were looking for some earlier.
Oh, sorry, I mean come chat with me. :) I made an effort to change my sleep schedule and I need an incentive to stay awake the whole day, so I am inviting a few of the people I have met in chat to join me there at all times of the day as I will have my browser open to that page the whole day today. Hope to see you there! Cane
Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself. The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.
Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups. Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there. There are Nexus groups for many states, cities, countries, personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups. Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.
To find local groups and make friends or chat, Meetup.com is a great place to locate groups or start one. (note, Meetup is not connected to AN). Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, atheism, skeptics, freethought, to see if there is a local group.
Support nexus by going to Amazon.com through the site (see the amazon box on the right). Buying from Amazon via the Nexus site does not increase your cost, but results in a small fee going to Nexus.
