1. What is something new you’ve done because you are under coronavirus self-quarantine? Honestly? Only one thing. I’ve started watching the news a couple times a week. 2. What three habits have improved your life? Cleaning house daily so it’s not a huge, overwhelming task. Building “me time” into every day. Creating a healthy relationship with food. 3. What really makes you angry? Anger isn’t … Continue reading T.M.I. Tuesday
I’m truly curious why there are so many people I run into who don’t grasp that as an atheist, I don’t believe in a source or creator, gods, goddesses of any kind or number, or even a higher power. There is… NOTHING. This isn’t unsettling to me. I don’t feel the need to feel connected to something larger than myself or even a sense of … Continue reading Why is atheism hard to understand?
As I play Forge of Empires I meet more people with a geek level equal to my own. How did I miss this all my life? lol I kinda know, actually. I was ahead of my generation. Not many girls were playing D & D and joining the chess club when I was a teen in the late 1980’s. Anyhow, as I meet these like-minded … Continue reading New Adventures in Geekdom

A medical facility is the last place I think anyone would want to go during a pandemic. Am I wrong in thinking this?

Since I’m sick and advised against leaving the house I decided to look at some online shopping and delivery services for groceries and basic necessities. Yeah… so here’s the thing. Safeway isn’t … Continue reading Sick & Tired
1. Assume that in the future there will be huge leaps in human augmentation. Given a scale from completely human to completely machine, how far would you choose to augment yourself with robotics? What parts would you augment and why? I’d choose not to augment with robotics at all. I’m a firm believer that just because we can doesn’t mean we should. This is not … Continue reading T.M.I.

Each and every one of us needs and deserves a safe place to share our thoughts and feelings. A place to retreat to and rejoice in. I’d like to remind you all that the internet is not that place. The moment you post something on the web you have put it out there for the world to see and judge. Most people know and understand … Continue reading Safe Place
After weeks of enjoying my time with Father Brown and all his delightful friends as they solve all the local crime I just wasn’t prepared for them to end. I thought I had a few more episodes…. I just asked Daddy if I can revisit them. Truly sad to see this show come to a close. My friends are gone. Continue reading I’m not ready…
