Wanted to swing by and say Hi again; see how life is treating you. You doing okay? Hope all's well in Anaheim; I used to live right on the border of Anaheim Hills and Yorba LInda. Glad I don't anymore; the construction on Imperial Hwy would have been insane to put up with.
O.K. I'll come out. I live in Laguna Beach (28 years) and have been out to my community half of that time. I attend monthly meetings of OC Atheists (IHOP on MacArthur Blvd. opposite John Wayne airport), Atheists United, O.C. (Newport Beach Golf Club) and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (Irvine Water District Office). I've been fortunate to have had over 100 letters to the editor to local L.B. newspapers published (www.atheistsletters.com).

hmm let's see, scrapbooking, home decor, etc.. Right now I'm in the process of making, or should I say attempting to make a mother's bracelet. I see that you are in a roller derby league, that's way cool! Is it pretty brutal? Do ya knock girls down when they get in the way? lol..
Thanks, Cupcake! I agree, there's a huge void in atheist children's literature, especially for the really young. There's always Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series, which is excellent. But that's really all I know of. Anyway, so glad to have met you here and excited to get to know you! :)
Homeschooling is only as hard as one makes it. We are Unschoolers so we pretty much just live our lives and explore whatever looks interesting. :)
It's sad to hear what Bella said. During the time we started skating, TRD was one of the top 3 leagues in the country. I can see how the drama could tear it apart. They always used to shit all over Iron Curtain. Then adding a fourth team...too much maybe. But where you have 50-100 strong willed women you're gonna have drama, eh? :)
Born and raised here in Iowa, grew up mostly in Des Moines. Took the long way through school. After high school just worked for awhile then started at ISU for a couple of years. Finally, this year, after a few more years off, I went back and finished up.
How about you? Are you originally from California or did you move there from some place else?
Tell Bella hello back for me! I have been focusing on school since I quit derby.
Didn't Mandi Festo end up somewhere in So. Cal too? TRD has changed so much the past couple years. I suspect that's why they've really dropped in the rankings. And derby is growing so fast I prolly have never even seen most of the top ten teams anymore. My derby wife, Paris Troika, just started a league up in the boondocks north of Phoenix.
It's not bad here in Iowa. I just finished school and am looking to get out for awhile. Thanks for the greetings, I'm new to the A/N network and am happy to meet some great people already... I was perusing the photos and came across your pics of the roller derby girls. I do some crazy stuff on bikes but you'll never catch me doing what you do, that looks brutal....
