I gets lonely livin’ in the country

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

On Feb 6th, Kathryn, Iris, and I were headed towards Snowshoe for our little weekend ski trip. Near Covington, we exited I-64 and stopped in a Subway to get some sandwiches. While waiting in the car with Iris, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye ...

Spiritual Humanism

Friday, March 18th, 2005

Finding Secular Humanism a tad too ego-centric, I had a look at SpiritualHumanism.org. There, you can "become an ordained member of the Spiritual Humanist clergy for FREE". Strange that this is the very first thing on the page that you see - I guess this is the hook! ...
