Atheist Parenting Moments

Despicable Timing

You can tell how well you are doing in giving your children the right sense of "Family" (capital F) when all the children shout in unison their reply when asked....................

Well let me explain.

We are all at the family farm this weekend and next week, eagerly awaiting birth of my sister's third baby (Nina is her midwife). My parents are gradually easing off running the family estate and handing over to my sister and hubby Geoff who left… Continue

Secret Service Colombian Prostitution Scandal

Posted on April 27, 2012 at 8:01am 1 Comment

I have been reading with some amusement the moralizing coverage in the US press of the Secret Service/US Military Colombian Prostitution Scandal. I have tried to distill what I have read into a spoof news article that from my perspective sums up the issues here:

Secret Service Colombian Prostitution Scandal 

The Colombia prostitution scandal widened Tuesday as it emerged that Secret Service agents and military personnel brought back at…

Oakland Police Hit On New Way To Reduce Cost Of Veterans

Posted on October 30, 2011 at 6:45pm 0 Comments

Parody (sort of):

America has hit upon a new way of dealing with its war veterans who have so faithfully served their country.  

"We happened upon this quite by accident but its implications for cost saving to the nation are enormous"

said Oakland Chief of Police

"It has the advantage of being very cost effective, and even that small cost can be billed to the VA people. No more military pensions to pay out, and no more VA healthcare costs. Of course it also means…

Hello, Not really, I just admire your profile and liked a few comments you posted on a common group, hope you don't mind ?:)

Nope, we have not. I just saw your comment on one of the posts and thought it would be nice to know you :P

Hello Judith. Thanks for accepting my request. Holland is one of the places I meant to visit before we moved to the US. It is still on my list, and I will get there some day! My partner also worked in the medical field before we moved here; I used to be in physics research many moons ago, and spent a while at CERN. Four kids sounds like a lot of work - a couple of brats are more than enough for us :-)
