About Me:
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

Principles upon which I stand

Posted on April 23, 2016 at 6:02pm 3 Comments

I endeavor to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures faithful to reason.

My cause of action exists in the pursuit of justice over laws and institutions that exploit, manipulate, and dominate.

My body is inviolable, subject to my will alone.

My feelings are mine, alone. 

I respect the freedom of others,…

Crisis provides the opportunity for change.

Posted on November 15, 2015 at 1:27am 8 Comments

War drums beat all around us, raising the shackles of quiet but frightened people feeling helpless. Militant Islam and militant Christians react with ever louder shouts of war. If there ever was a time for reasonable men and women to step forward it is now. The war mongers of Islam and Christianity are so loud it appears to the casual observer that hopelessness is all that exists.

I see opportunity all around me, not just a PollyAnna kind of optimism, but a future full of promise, new…

Hello Joan , Yes i could not agree more , the fascists and capitalists of this world are trying to treat other people like they are just slaves to keep them rich instead of distributing the wealth equally .The greed of these people causes suffering and death to others and has to be stamped out ,the only problem is that they have gained power through politics and there cult religions and its hard to reverse what they have done to the world  .

Hello Joan,

Thanks for your kind welcome. There's an awful lot to catch up on in Atheist Nexus as a newcomer, but I did notice you're a birder. Same here. We're getting very close (a couple weeks) to the crazy time in Minnesota for the return of the warblers. I can hardly wait...

Best wishes,

Joan, we were not personally affected by the storm at all. No damage. Yesterday I planted a hybrid pear tree that I bought locally, and tuesday planted a Honeycrisp apple. With the mild winter and massive rain they should settle in OK.

So sad to hear of your Ponderosa pines being lost. They are so beautiful. Glad it wasnt worse. You have had some climate challenges this year.

I have a gastroenterologist appointment next week to see if the gremlins have awakened. Vague anomaly on scan. Kind of down about that. Might be nothing. Either way, I have appointment next week with a world expert on GIST at OHSU. Kaiser wont pay but Im going anyway.

Hi Joan, thanks for the welcome. My avatar is a picture from a wild life reserve I visited while in South Africa.

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I look forward to participating here at Atheist Nexis.

Friends have given me the nickname Whit in the past, that seems to be a good way to distinguish the multiple Randys on the board.

Everyone enjoy the weekend!

Thank you for the nice welcome. I thought it very kind. Looking forward to more interaction after I familiarize myself with the group.
