What Killed My Chicken - How To Know

What Killed My Chicken - How To Know Justin tells what can kill chickens and how to identify the killer species. He does his usual drama presentation which is fun for me, not so for others. Go ahead and watch because the show is very short, and makes his point. He is much like Mollison in teaching by storytelling. Incidentally, Mollison died on Saturday.   See More

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

Cary Part 4 Diagnosis confirmed

Posted on September 23, 2016 at 8:32pm 5 Comments

Another batch of tests today, more scheduled, and the diagnosis made. Various people conducting the treatment plan will do all they can to make him comfortable. Cancer starts in his esophagus, moved into the lymph glands and lungs. Surgery is out. It has not been decided yet if he will have chemo and radiation.  

The good news is Cancer Care Northwest provides Cary with the greatest group of people, from physicians, technicians, nurses, support staff. They all have positive attitudes.…

Cary Part 3 Foods To Nourish Cary Team

Posted on September 22, 2016 at 11:16pm 2 Comments

Menus for easy swallowing is a new challenge and one I am not well equipped from experience to meet. 

The reality is, I explore options and need some brainstorming partners. Remember when I had cancer, and so many of you were on my Cancer Team, encouraging, advising, teaching me how to proceed? Now I ask for a Foods To Nourish Cary Team. 

Options:  

beef, chicken, or fish stock;

mashed potatoes cooked in homemade…

Cary Part 2

Posted on September 21, 2016 at 11:14pm 1 Comment

I followed Cary around. First I worked at the boys' ranches after his release. The Community Colleges needed someone to teach at the prison, which I did after Cary left; I taught Life Skills to men who had been in prison for long periods and were about to return to the public life. They had to learn how to get a job, manage money, control anger, communication skills, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. Many had wives and children "on the outside" and my task was to help them…

Cary Part 1

Posted on September 21, 2016 at 9:55pm 8 Comments

Cary, my son who was a real handful from the moment we picked him up from Deaconess Hospital in Spokane when the nurses put me in a wheelchair with Cary in my arms, and we went to the door. The nurse said all babies ride in the arms of their adopted mothers so no one can know the baby is adopted. We waited for six months for his birth. We didn't meet his birth mother; however, we knew she was just a kid, 17 or 18 years old. His birth father was an airman at Fairchild Airforce Base near…

Thank you, Joan. As a student of life and a seeker of all things logical I often ran into a site with this "Irreverend Mike"-15 years ago I dove into the battle of ones faith. What faith I had prior to 15 years ago was not suitable an answer. Thus I dove ALL in and opened my mind towards all views. When I dove-I ran back into this "Irreverend Mike", engaged contact and I am forever grateful. Looking to give a "shout out" and say "Thank you", whether he remembers me or not, I found this site. I am excited!! Thank you again for your welcoming!

Thanks, Joan, I was wondering when someone would notice!  I figured it was about time to update things (the old pic is at least six to seven years old), so I pressed my webcam into service and ... VOILA!

Hi Joan thanks for your message. I've been a critical thinker since childhood but never actually considered myself an atheist. I've actually decided that's what I consider myself not so long ago! I do watch a lot of stuff about evolution but I feel like a bit of a noob among a group of self-proclaimed atheists! So hard to find that in real life!

Thanks for the welcome, Joan.

Hey, Joan!

I just re-watched Seth Andrews' interview with David Silverman about the book, Fighting God, and I see what you mean.  I think it's less that Seth was irritated than that 1) he was being something of a devil's advocate to draw out more points and detail on David's positions and 2) that Seth himself is NOT a firebrand or not as comfortable with that kind of persona, though I HAVE heard him go on some SERIOUS rants on TTA and more than once.

My $0.02 worth.

Hi Joan. Thanks for your kind words. You flatter me. Is there a group you use to discuss climate change and ecology?

At 12:44pm on June 9, 2016, James Miller said…

Thank you for the nice greeting.

I'll certainly do as you have suggested.

(This format is new to me, thus the delay of my response.)

Take care.
