And thanks for the warm welcomes from those I have yet to harass talk to in the fora.  I look forward to educating learning from all of you.

I was reading the thread (IIRC it was in IA) about your surgery.  Sounds like it's been a rough go, but I'm glad you're recovering.  I hope this time it sticks and you don't have to continue with getting these surgeries.

I'm proud of you for being sober for 2.5 years.  I'm not really shocked.  I always knew you had it in you.  I'm just glad you got through the challenge and stuck with it.  I'm impressed.

As for me, I've been busy climbing the corporate ladder.  An opportunity presented itself for advancement which involved relocation, so I find myself living in Dayton and running 11 restaurants.

Age coupled with stress on the job has let me to some new found health issues which I'm currently contending with.  Been in the ER twice since August (and you know it wasn't by choice given my aversion to allopathic medicine).  I'm currently dealing with these and trying to find a holistic practitioner whenever I find time when I'm not working.

I've been thinking about you all (obviously since I found my way back) and wondering what everyone's been up to.  I'm glad to see some of you still here.  I'm not gonna lie.  I'm a bit saddened by the loss of SF (didn't learn about that til yesterday) and the disappearance of some old compadres.  But there are still some familiar faces around here (a couple that choose to pretend I'm not here, but that's okay) and some new ones with whom I look forward to becoming better acquainted.

But I digress.  It's good to see you again, M.

I do.  It's a great record. :)

How has life been treating you? I had to have back surgery again.  In fact, it took two operations to get me back on my feet this time.  My recovery goes well.  I have been back at home and living with my parents for quite a while now.  I am 2.5 years sober.  Major shock huh?  I think about you and what you've been up to often.  Details man.  Details......

Alchymist wish I could be there. Right now I don't know what I'm going to do. Just have to wait and see. Play it by ear.

I wish I could be there as well Alchy. That sounds amazing.

Well, if you can somehow make your way to the Unitarian Church on Bertram Street in downtown Kelowna, B.C., at 6 p.m. on November 1st, we'll be sure to give you a warm welcome.

(And anyone else as well, of course.........)

Blessed Be everyone,

Alchymist.

Well that's just it, it has nothing whatsoever to do with religion any more, I imagine it once did in times where it mattered. Perhaps it started at the time of Oliver Cromwell, it's simply stuck as a traditional trend for many years without any thought being given to it at all. As I said, it's merely a tag similar to being tagged as black or white, Irish or Scottish and so on. These things are easily overlooked or forgotten about. I imagine it also stuck for a long time due to many children dying young of disease etc. and they wanted a particular religious orientation to carry out burial/last rites.
 
As an example, do you realise that it's only a number of years ago that a town just south of the border of Scotland, Berwick Upon Tweed, was at war with Russia? That came about because when war was declared, the monarch at that time stated that the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Berwick Upon Tweed are at war with Russia. When it was all over, there was a different monarch and that declaration was stated similarly but missing out the bit naming Berwick. So in official terms they were still at war.....

It  is so nice to hear from young people and how the world has changed . Whose your daddy seem not to mean anything anymore . When have you hear of anyone one calling on a Pagan priest/ess to be at the birth of a childe ?. Don't think in America anyone cares anymore except the Native American , you should see a blessing ceremony . To many of the teens are forgetting the true ways .

So sorry for them

I have to admit Drac, that is one cultural difference that is not widely known in the US (assuming I'm privy to what is widely known).  Over here your religion is dictated by what you choose to believe which may change throughout your life, and if someone wanted to include religion on birth certificates there would be an outcry you could hear across the pond and then some.

Interesting, because I don't think this is discussed much. Informative side trip there.
