Greetings, Rose! 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.
One of my friends got it in her head that she wanted to vacation in NC during the month of August. She concocted a plan and now I am committed to a vacation to NC from Aug 20-30. Please tell me the weather has cooled down. We will be spending most of the time on the coast.
BTW Most of the southern gals I knew were not atheists. Good for you.
