"I'm 90kg = 198 pounds. That is slightly overweight as it gives a BMI of 26.7. I keep trying to lose that little bit but it's stubborn and won't go away. I'm reasonably fit though. My recent DNA test said that I would tend to…"

"I've just come home from visiting some family in England. Very nice indeed. One of the things I saw was the tabloid/gutter press and how many people swallow the muck whole. Quite frightening, really. Any view that's more intelligent and…"

"Quite right, Joan. I'm reminded of a quote I heard somewhere: 'Principles are like stars. We may never quite reach them but, like the mariners of old, we use them to steer by.'"

"Chris, as I understand it, Danish records are fairly good and there are a lot of websites that will help. There's a period in the mid1800s when the law was changed so people had to have a permanent family name. The tradition before that was…"

Small changes........

Posted on August 14, 2009 at 2:10pm 1 Comment

There was a recent news item on Danish T.V. where an opposition politician from the Social Democratic Party, Christine Antorini, said that the "Our Father" prayer should no longer be used in schools. "It belongs in church and not in schools. We have Christian, Muslim and Jewish children......"

I wrote to her expressing my support but pointing out that children do not get their religion via their D.N.A. but through their upbringing. Therefore it would be more correct to say children of a… Continue

Music

Have a listen to "Trees" on my music. It's by the daughter of an online friend and who's as yet undiscovered. Completely unprejudiced, I think it's good.

The last day of freedom. Tomorrow I'll be back at health school, trying to get the bit of paper that says I'm qualified to do the job I've been doing for the past 12 years.

The other option has been to start again as a trainee on a trainee salary and spen 8 months in work experience as well as 6 months at school, so it's not so bad. I'll be… Continue

Not alone! At last!

Posted on December 31, 2008 at 1:33am 3 Comments

I've only started using a computer and the Internet this year, so it's been a pleasant surprise to discover that I'm not alone. Not that I live in an overwhelmingly religious society (Denmark) but I meet almost nobody who is a real skeptic/atheist. The vast majority spout things about "there are more things in heaven and earth", usually thinking they are quoting the Bible - it's Shakespeare - and without knowing the other half: "than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio." Don't be narrow… Continue

I had no sleep yesterday -- so I'm tired.  Hoping to get caught up on sleep this weekend. 

Good luck on going without tobacco. My thoughts are with you!

Have a nice weekend.

That particular quote was on the Bad Opinion Generator, but I didn't snag it. Too many choices.

Greetings, Ian! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
