      Thanks for reading this. I read some of Jane’s and I fell off my chair laughing. She has a great sense of humor… I hope you are not working too hard, but it sounds like you and Cari are both afflicted with demanding jobs. Let’s get a beer (all of us) soon. Take care and keep me posted if you like the blogs. Be well…

    I’m following you on Twitter but you seem to have stopped posting on your blog.
    Or am I wrong?

    Tod, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I’ve been mulling over a few ideas about your other blog and would be glad to send them along but this doesn’t seem like the place to do it. If you’re willing to put up with my blathering contact my gmail for wmejoy and I’ll be glad to get back to you as quickly as I can.

    Another ROFTER! Not too many of us around (more’s the pity).

    Doc, I am sad to hear of your conversion. You took the easy way…the way of near certitude and minimal ambiguity. Usually such is done because it is convenient both personally and professionally! You jumped off the life raft to the ‘big boat’ leaving the rest of us to be tossed as flotsam by the ways of an almost indiscernable universe. As bright as you are, you embrace what Dr. John Hutechesson suggested: “Unthinking faith is a curious offering to be made to
    the Creator of the human mind.” (please get a copy of his book: “Faith, Reason and Existence”).

    Of course, you will say the Roman Catholic conglomerate offers reason…in spades. Yes, it does.
    All circular. The default position is: the mysteries. Have you really struggles through all 1625 assertions of the JP II, circa 1983, catechism?

    Pray tell, what were you before you ‘converted’?
