k.h., thanks for the comments. I always enjoy reading what you have to say!
The cancer situation is confusing. Even my oncologist is not knowlegeable on it. I am nearing the point where half develop worsening - nothing I can do about it. There are experimental medications that I take, and others that can be used. I try to live one day at a time. Will retire, if I make it that far, in 15 months. I try to be open and honest about the situation, it has a big impact on me, without being too in-your-face about it.
Hope you are doing well and your winter will be mild and spring arrives on time with flowers and gentle rains!
Hey Owensboro, ty for the comment on my Pen and Ink, Old Tobacco Barn, lots of those down here in the western part of Ky. They raise lots of Burley and Darkfired here. And no, I've never had in lessons in my drawings, just a hobby I picked up many years ago. Don't draw as much as I used to though. Thanks again.
Hi k.h. Thanks for your words of encouragement...I had no idea that I would create such a firestorm with that blog on circumcision...Did you see how many members blasted my views? I had no idea how unpopular it was....I never gave it much thought before so it took me by surprise....I am a little shell shocked now, so not sure when I will get the confidence to participate again.....Take care...FT31
I live in Boyd County. Catlettsburg is the "city" but we tell people Ashland as everyone knows where that is. Bonus: Forbes Magazine's 2014 winner of The Most Miserable City in the USA is....ASHLAND, KY!!
I hate it here, as does DH and DS. Can't go anywhere as immigration has denied our residency while taking all my money. Great. Back to square one and staying in Godville, USA, for another year.
My computer died so I had to buy a new one. It took me a while to determine that my previous computer wasn't worth fixing, to order a replacement then to transfer the data off the hard drive from the old computer to this replacement.
What about yourself? I haven't heard from you for what seems like a couple of years.
That's why I spend my time here. When MySpace functioned as a social network, in the Atheists group people were usually nasty to me. AN is civilized and "safe". That's why I donate $20 monthly, it's worth much more than that to me.
Hi k.h. ky, thank you for the welcome. I'm still fairly new and still reading, reading and more reading on this site. It amazes me how there is so much information, so many opinions and just flat out ideas that really hadn't occurred to me.
The weather is getting better but I still have 3" of ice on my driveway. Yes, I have been busy. I have organized 3 Freethinkers meetings a month in this small town of Madison, IN. That gives me something to look forward to every month. I'm also busy bowling, dancing and chasing women. It's fun to be retired.
