Well, the morning happiness post is going to have to wait. I woke up to see this screenshot in a facebook group I’m in for Arkansas freethinkers: Um, voluntary or not, that’s not legal. Like, not even close to legal. I checked the Jessieville School District’s page myself and this entry is still there as [Read More…]
Arkansas school planning to bus students to a local church during school hours for National Day of Prayer.
Damn, I’ve been out of the house all day (pics tomorrow). Hopefully somebody will decide to buy the house. I arrive back home to see that Trump absolutely crushed in Indiana: Though the real-estate mogul won’t secure the 1,237 delegates he needs to formally claim the nomination until June, his Indiana triumph makes it almost [Read More…]
Hey guys. Our realtor wants to do an open house today from 10:30am – 1:30pm, and I also just got notice of a showing at 9am (it’s about 8:30am). I have to be out of the house for all of this. Oh, and the wife’s grandmother passed away this morning, so she took the [Read More…]
Well here’s an unfortunate study: Atheists consistently rank among the lowest of the low in the court of American public opinion. Now, research suggests one reason why: Thinking about atheists reminds people of death. In fact, prompting people to think about atheism triggered death-related thoughts just as strongly as, well, directly prompting people to think [Read More…]
Roy Moore feels he’s under attack by “atheists, homosexuals, and transgender individuals” for stuff he actually did.
Poor Roy Moore. He committed numerous ethics violations back when the Supreme Court was striking down gay marriage bans, and now people have the audacity to point them out! The nerve! It’s all part of this gay marriage conspiracy, I tell you: Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, famous for his embrace of religion [Read More…]
A bill that would add domestic violence as grounds for divorce in Mississippi recently passed the House and seemed likely to become law. The Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence pushed for the bill citing that one of the biggest requests they receive is for legal help in obtaining a divorce from an abusive spouse: A [Read More…]
Good morning, all! So, the house is listed. I may have to step out a few times if I get notices of showings, but so far the schedule is clear. Anyway, I got this in the mail the other day: This is from one of my freshman sopranos who has made ridiculous progress. I’ve always [Read More…]
We’re off! Today is a whirlwind up gussying up the house so people will pay more money for it. These are the exact same. Why is the packaging slightly different? Wife is confused. Apparently having flowers in the house makes people more willing to buy it. People are weird. Baby pineapple. Beyond this point you [Read More…]
So…remember how I said yesterday was going to be a personal day? Well…Dave had an offer accepted on a house closer to KU Med (the plan has been to move closer to make med school easier for the wife), which means we’re listing this house either this evening or tomorrow morning. So it became day [Read More…]
Hey guys. I’m back in the saddle, but I probably put in almost 40 hours in three days on the Sarah Morehead piece, then went and taught voice lessons last night, and I’m still sick (though getting incrementally better, so I think the med regimen the doctor gave me is working). I think today will [Read More…]
Hey guys. If you’re worrying why I’ve been absent the last few days, well, here it is. I’ve been working on this. So…here we go with another long post that has not been very fun to write. First, let me say that every person, myself included, has skeletons in their closet. It’s part of being [Read More…]
