About Me:
I am an 80-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it. I bring to my community a worldliness that challenges attitudes and norms of a parochial and insular power structure.

    Hi Joan, 

       Do you know of any Conservative Atheists in your area?

    I know of only two in my area.  They are young men in their twenties, who are Liberarian Atheists.  Nice guys, but not always easy with which to talk.

       I do not communicate through social media in a regular, consistent manner.  I do better via telephone, or in person.  It seems, to put what I want to say in writing, takes me four times longer than to speak it.  So I tell my friends, "If your topic is time sensitive, tell me, and I will check with more frequency."  And now you know too.

       We are experiencing are first couple of thirty degree days of the Autumn.  It will bounce back up to the fifties in the next day or so.  I have my yard tucked in for the winter.  How is your place?

    Hi!  I'm not that active on here but try to poke my head in every once in a while.  :)
