A four years late formal introduction
Not really new. I joined back in 2012 but never made an intro thread. But I've noticed familiar faces here I haven't been seeing around AF.org for a while. Think I might be around more often now. So maybe I'll try to be more well mannered and make an intro.

Religious affiliation: kaput, null, void, nope.

Professional status: retired math teacher.

Political affiliation: liberal elite

Location: Berkeley, California, US

Marriage status: taken

Hobbies/pastimes: walking with dogs; making a garden; reading; cards with the wife; online poker.

Interests: The nature and origins of the self, identity and consciousness.
The origins of god belief.

These are the dogs, the one year old boy followed by the 7 year old girl:

This is (part of) my garden:

It's always good to see you around. I don't go to AF much. Just didn't settle in there like I did here.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Thanks Pablo, Anjele and Jennybee. I wonder if Anjele is angel in some other language? Looking forward to finding my way around.

Cool, we got retirement, dogs and garden in common. I used to play online poker some years ago, too. I have also spent much time in Berkeley - a very long time ago.

Welcome!

That's cool. Were you in Berkeley for school? Both the wife and I did both under grad and grad studies there. It is just brutal to retire to such a place as your finances lose pace, but other than that I love it here. Where did you live when you were here and where did you resettle (I mean, assuming you're not in the witness protection program)? My neighborhood has generously been described as seedy. (We live in a 100+ year old warehouse where my wife also does her artwork; you don't generally get such a space in a nice neighborhood.) Oh, and I'm pegging you as a doberman guy, amirite?

What kind of gardening are you into? Other than the fruit trees I put in years ago I'm strictly ornamental. I figure we have good green grocers and the climate makes growing your own tomatoes pretty hard, so why fight it? While my climate won't produce great tomatoes it is exactly the sort of mild but rarely hot that I personally thrive best in.

Hello again. Is this where you do all your worst acting out? Wink
