Reading Time: 2 minutes I was almost impregnated by a child molester. I can’t go into too much detail, but I will say this: it was a heterosexual-passing long-term relationship between two white people. It was socially condoned in almost every way. I could’ve become pregnant and had that baby, and everyone would’ve cheered. Luckily, that’s not what happened. […]
Reading Time: 8 minutes I thought that I had written this article before. And perhaps I have but I can’t find in my archives or it didn’t transfer over from the Skeptic Ink Network. This is in response to Dave Armstrong’s comments here below: [Him, quoting me, quoting him] Atheist anti-theist polemicist Jonathan MS Pearce wrote in his screed… As […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes The spring semester is over but my brain is still melted from it and the rest of me is burnt out too, so here’s a fun little personal essay I’d submitted elsewhere and that had been rejected (yes, that happens to even the great Dr. Jorgensen).

Reading Time: < 1 minute Well, we did no homeschool learning today, but we did manage to create a new home dominoes rally, upgraded with some marbles. So there is that. The original from the other day is here: And today’s upgrade (spot the single philosophy book!): Something different to mayhaps brighten your day. If you have kids who would […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes This was what I posted to my GoFundMe page the other night: As most of you know, I have PPMS (Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis), had stem cell treatment (HSCT) six months ago in Russia (Moscow), and have returned for my follow-up MRI scan. Which I had today, and met with the doctor on the same […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes We have kids because we believe that, whatever struggles or setbacks they face along the way, their lives will be better than ours.
Reading Time: 2 minutes I thought it was about time than I gave anyone who cared at all a little bit of an update as to how I am getting on. As many of you know, I was diagnosed at the end of last year with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. For this, there is little to no treatment available. […]
