Well, I almost nearly forgot to come here and post something, but I determined to at least try to post something, anything, for 7 days. I had a pretty good spring and early-summer, but then the summer heat kicked in …Continue reading →

And when I say ‘five or six months’, I mean for my story. I’ll try to remember to post regular stuff here more often than that! LOL
(Adapted from something Matt Dillahunty said) So, you don’t believe in God? Nope. I don’t have enough evidence to believe in a god. What will it take to convince you? I don’t know. If you don’t know what will convince …Continue reading →
