“The Animal Communicator” movie is more about telepathy than nature

I cultivate a network of nature lovers in Corvallis and Albany (www.neighborhood-naturalist.com). I started to hear about this new movie “The Animal Communicator”. You can watch it on YouTube free 52-min. http://youtu.be/KIOXZLUAfXw but read this post first. I’m a conservationist and an advocate for animal rights. You’d think I’d love a movie about connecting with …

It’s finally happening…

Angela and I are moving into our newly-remodelled house tomorrow (and for the next few days after that), after two months of living in a hotel. The remodel’s not DONE; but it’s finally livable while the last few bits trickle in… Once everything IS done, we’ll be inviting everyone to come and see… *SO* ready …

The Great Remodel Commences

Oh yeah, I should probably mention — Angela and I are now living in a hotel for 6 weeks while our house is massively remodeled. I *JUST* got my computer reassembled and online at the hotel. The physical pain we are both experiencing from a long weekend of boxing and packing EVERYTHING away is… indescribable. …

Yay for Atheism!

I recently recently got a new car… (a cute little sporty Hyundai Accent – which I loove!) And since I am a perpetual adolescent girl trapped in a middle aged woman’s body I still love stickers, sparkles etc… I got a Darwin Fish, FSM decal and a great big, black sticker with large white lettering …

Back in the ER…

Spent all evening at the ER with Angela.  Still here at 2am.  So far, nobody’s figured out what’s broken with her this time.  But whatever it is, she’s not particularly enjoying it. Updates later when we know something…

Angela hospital post-mortem

Angela returned from the hospital on Tuesday, having dropped 60 pounds of water weight in 5 days. And we have BOTH continued to lose weight since then, due to a parting gift from the hospital that Angela shared with me — a lovely case of norovirus. Yup, we’ve both been sick as dogs this past …

The Joy of Being Angela

So, yeah, Angela’s in the hospital.  Again. In case anyone’s reading this who isn’t a member of CSS, or a former reader of the Willamette Freethinker, some history: I am the Vice President of Corvallis Secular Society, and editted the Freethinker (our group’s newsletter) for sixteen years, before letting it go dark in January, in favor …

My father

Well, I didn’t make it to the January CSS meeting, as I had planned. My father, Ross Byers, at 99 1/2 years old and increasingly poor health, died on my birthday, as I was just getting ready to fall asleep.  So Angela and I had to race off to Houston, to comfort my mother, and …
