I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

I've not had as much trouble with my name as Felaine, but I do get a lot of mail addressed to Ms. Francis...., and I had some ribbing in school about Francis the Talking Mule.

That's a good memory clue Joan.  Of course, I don't need a clue as my name is Francis.

Well, Indiana has made the national news with the passing of its ignominious so-called "religious rights" bill. I hope they'll pay for it in loss of incoming business--conventions and such. Oh those wascally Republicans.

I understand felaine, you bloody KNOW the origin of your first name. I was trying to figure out if my old memory clue was valid. So, now I know how to spell your BLOODY name. 

I'm laughing. Not criticizing. Just could let the opportunity pass for me to type bloody!

A friend of mine says "Bloody Hell" when she wants to swear. 

I like your response that "Frances is dead". 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 27, 2015 at 10:38pm

Oh, of course, a bottle, as in booze.

instead of a frontal lobotomy.

Joan, I bloody KNOW the origin of my first name; I've had it for 75 years, and had to explain it every year to every effing school  ever went to.  Also the IRS, Social InSecurity, Medicareless, and every time I go to a new doctor.  I just never bothered to ask my parents why they did that to me; "Frances" was Mother's first name, so they called me Elaine from the day I was born.

When telemarketers call the house and ask for "Frances,"  I just say , "She's dead."  They hang up real fast.

I'll put a couple of Roto-Rooter links in the coffeeshack.  They don't belong in this discussion!

I know I am dense. but what does

"Rather a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy!" mean?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 27, 2015 at 10:12pm

"Francis is a French and English given name of Latin origin. Francis is a name that has many derivatives in most European languages.

The female version of the name in English is Frances. 

My memory clue:

Francis > him 

Frances > her
