Thank you for the welcome and information. I'll check out the Eco group. California is in one of its normal droughts, not sure if the coming expected rains will get the snow pack and water table levels back to normal. From my understanding, the drought is not caused by climate change but could possibley be made worse due to it.
Thank you very much for your kind greeting-I'm familiar with Bensalem as I grew up in Philly and the 'burbs and outlying communities were just 'up and running' population-wise when I moved away in '74. I am really looking forward to to corresponding with progressively minded individuals who are willing to accept responsibility to define their own lives and on their own terms. I hope you have a pleasing holiday, Ruth. Debb
Just to say thanks for telling me part of your story. I can understand it; also my wife had IBS for several years. How it came and how it went, we do not know.
I’ve been on my relevant drugs for six years now. The cancer was found too late. It was already locally advanced when found, but the treatment is holding it at bay temporarily. Because I have the sword of Damocles above my head I am working like mad—maybe 60 hours every week, week on week, and getting out to major conferences, running sessions, giving lectures. Also writing several books, some are advanced or finished. Will publish as ebooks. This is why I spend little time on Atheist Nexus—so much to do.
The rules must be working Ruth. This is the cleanest site I've ever been on. I haven't seen the first bit of spam here and for the most part people are very civil to each other.
Maybe it's because there are no theists. I've seen theists become extremely nasty on other sites. Go figure.
