DeSwiss Pounds the Keyboard Once Again!!! :-)

Yeah and so, it's been a while since my last blog. Right?



Oh, did I mention before that I'm still kinda recovering from two surgeries last year? Yeah, bummer. Turns out I had aneurysms up the old wazoo, and could have keeled over dead at any moment. Seriously. Like in less than five minutes. They call it a Triple-A, only mine turned into a Quad, (i.e.- going in a 2nd time.).

The Wiki Atheism Portal

Okay this is officially my first blog post. But this post is not really so much about my thoughts, revelations and/or frustrations with life (more to come on that later), as it is a question.
