Ah, yeah, I forgot Wake Forest was a Baptist university. That's funny as hell, when it's stuck right on the side of Greensboro.

Hi again all...Robert, in answer to your question: Winston is probably the least liberal city in NC. It's home to Wake Forest University (lg private Baptist univ) & their huge Baptist Medical Center! The progressives are there but you won't know it. I know of a young lady who whose car was keyed & an angry note left about her atheist/liberal bumper sticker. Daughter wanted an Obama4Pres sticker for our car then, but I said no way, it's an invitation for all kinds of trouble. If it got out around the school, teachers or the busybodies around town, it would be miserable them.

We only go to Winston for the mall, possible entertainment, and medical stuff, our docs are there.

well, i don't thinkg my big dog is very cat friendly. even though hes usually such a big puss. lol.

plus, we have a hard enough time with the little one always trying to find new ways to escape. much less our cat roaming the neighborhood. would make me nervous as hell. we have enough trouble and expenses dealing with the two lil furmongers we already have, anyway.

I just plain don't like fuzzies in my home. Heh. Dogs and cats as pets are fine, on principle, just not within the subset of my home.

Sorry, but I've got a pet-free home.

Does anyone want a cat? We found a starving cat on our porch. She is VERY friendly. We gave her some food and water and she attacked it. We have two dogs so can't keep her, but I hate giving her to a shelter if I can give directly to an owner. I posted lost n founds on craigslist with no luck.

Good work! My wife and I were just visiting family in Asheville and attended a summer class at UNCA Reuters Center taught by Carl Ricciardelli on The History of Disbelief. Quite interesting and great to see so many older folks engaged with the subject. I spoke to Carl after class and he was interested in reading my new book, Life After Faith. More freethinking in NC!

aerie - the SO and I are in Wilkes County every weekend (Moravian Falls). Maybe we can meet up for coffee or something sometime.

No worries. It's not like we're distracting the flow of other conversations, around here.

Personally, I just use free weights and go for long walks. I really need an elliptical trainer around the house, and then I'm all set.

yeah. In the back of my mind when I posted i think I was looking for a gym/carpool buddy though and just put down Garner/Clayton because of the gym's location. Not many of my friends go there. I usually go solo, but I'm suddenly without wheels for possibly a month or two and didn't wanna miss too many days and then have to work my way back up. Eh, I guess I should try harder to talk to people while I'm there and I wouldn't have this problem. lol. Being too introverted is a hard habit to break at my age though. Anyways, off topic rambling done now. (I do that a lot.)
