Good to see you all. Well, I suppose I owe an update. I helped start a group here in SD after I moved from Colorado. Life has been tough, finding a job up here has been really frustrating. I got laid off from the only drafting position we could find, so did my wife Julie. We have been through hell and back up here. I am still renovating this old church into a house. Maybe 3/4 done. we survived her affair, layoffs, just everything imaginable up here. It has been really tough. Then I spent the past two years rescuing a neighbor girl and dedicating my life to making hers better. Her mom had them home schooled which amounted to non-schooled for four years. Loved her like my own, but she decided to go back with her family last week and I have been once again devastated. We are on good terms though and she will still visit. SO I need to find ME again, get my life back on track. I taught as a High School Paraprofessional and also worked with Special needs kids for two years, but accepted a custodial position that was full time for the money. It is a mindless groundhog day now, no brains required, but I still help out teaching whenever I get the chance. We have sort of a cat rescue, with a couple dozen cats now. Had dogs rats a parrot and a rabbit come and go. Also rescued a vet that fell off the wagon....just gotta start focusing on myself and our relationship for a while till the wounds heal over. Reggy and I started a website called Amazinglife.bio where we post strange animals and biology information, he moved to Florida and is a high school biology teacher now. Still like brothers though we have still never met. I have met Richard Dawkins twice, Sean Faircloth, Elizabeth Cornwell, and a dozen other Youtubers. Went to the reason rally in DC in 2012. But this past year all I have done for the cause is face book rants. It has been a bumpy ride, but I hope worth it when this place is done. I think I lost my interest in the debates because as we all know they have zero new ideas and it's the same ol worn out thoroughly refuted bullshit over and over, but I have had fun here, even made the state capitol newspaper headlines going head to head with a YEC that was trying to get creationism taught in public school. I still care about the movement. I just need to get my life back on track. Good to see you all!
