Hi there, neighbor! Yeah, my upbringing was rich in dogma most of my life. Having known Ken Ham personally for many, many years, and being the religious zealot I was raised to be, being a non-theist has proven to be quite difficult. So thank you so much for your kindness and support. It means so much to me.
Randall, from time to time I welcome people to Nexus, although not reliably. I see you are doing that. Thank you. It makes the site more welcoming and I hope more people will join in the conversations.
I haven't tried growing soybeans sprouts. I'm glad to meet you, a fellow Hoosier. I live in SW Indiana. I'm X - Catholic, now non theist. I reside with my cat in my apartment but in the process of trying to buy a house in Hoosier National Forest.
Tacoma is a town in WA state in Puget sound. Not far from me. It was the Indian name for Mount Ranier. Seattle airport is there (Sea-Tac). Means something like "giver of waters". Supposedly. Rivers to Seattle are Ranier glacial snowmelt.
I holding my own. Appointment with surgeon for evaluation Mon. Tues is appointment for biopsy. They have to put me out for that. If they are fast - big if - I could wind up in surgery next week. Wild guess, 1 or 2 weeks.
Thanks for asking. For a long time I've been trying to balance living in the moment, with preparing for a future tomorrow with something to look forward to and not regret, and learning from the past. This is the same. There have been a couple of "why bother" moments but not much. Yesterday was an intense high-pressure work day. Today Im a bit dizzy and tired.
