Hi, nice to meet you. Hopefully we can meet one day in person.
Just wanted to let you know there are 2 great groups in your area. One is Orange County Atheists http://www.ocatheists.com/ . The second is Backyard Skeptics http://www.meetup.com/Backyard-Skeptics/ . They both have monthly meetings and events. I've spent time with both groups and the people are fun to be around.
