Rally Weekend!

Tina and I shot all day at a House Beautiful magazine event downtown. Our dogs are barking. We probably walked a few miles to get to and from different locations.

It was a lot of fun, though. It’s always cool to be surrounded by designers and high-end home furnishings that you or I may never be able to afford.

Tomorrow we’re leaving for Washington D.C. We decided to drive. It’ll give us some getting to know each other time, since we’re not already around each other 24/7.

We can’t wait to meet up with our favorite non-believers. It kind of surprises me that I feel like I know some of these people so well, but I’ve only met a couple of them face to face. Wait, I think I’ve only met Luis V. face to face.

I’ve only seen the other ones during Internet chats.

Anyway, I’ll be updating as much as I can from the road. So make sure you stop by and see what we’re up to.


Illini Secular Student Alliance Has New Bus Ads!

Over at Skeptic Money, Phil Ferguson writes:

One of the largest and most influential secular student groups in the world has done it again. Illini Secular Student Alliance (ISSA) has launched a new advertising campaign.  They are promoting the idea that you can be, “Good without god”. They will be displayed on 5 buses in Champaign-Urbana, starting around November 1st.  These ads were paid for in part by the Secular Student AllianceChampaign Urbana Freethinkers and people like you.  If they can get more funding they will run more.  This is a chance for you to step up and make a difference.  Go to their donation page and send them some money.

Here are a couple examples (below). I know people who think Bill Gates is leftist and gives away money because he feels guilty. Gosh, think of that. A left-leaning individual who wants to do good in the world is criticized.

Go say hola and tell those kids how cool they are.
