Retired (almost) construction project engineer, has own snow plowing business. Waterfront canalside cottage, affordable. Athletic & active. Interested in just about everything....far more interests than time. Gardening, pottery, woodworking, road cycling, boating, amateur musician, the arts, reading, science/cosmology, coffee and conversation. Aspiring contrarian. Belong to and support FFRF, CFI (worldwide hdqts.here), the-Brights.

Former (non-molested)altar boy, know the Mass in Latin, but one day I went around back of the altar, and it was like OZ...all for show! then Episcopal (until I read Shelby Spong) then UU, then realized I never bought it. Still recommend UU as a gathering place for atheists looking for community. Widely read in nonbelief.

Your experience may vary. I've smoked my share, and now leave it for others to enjoy.
