THE CHAPTER FOUR BLOG

Questions? You can ask me anything ... just not anonymously.  

"I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an anti-theist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful." - Christopher Hitchens in Letters to a Young Contrarian.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." - Sinclair Lewis

“Religion has ever been anti-human, anti-women, anti-life, anti-peace, anti-reason, and anti-science. The god idea has been detrimental not only to humankind, but to the earth. It is time now for reason, education, and science to take over.” - Madalyn Murray O'Hair

Eòin - Painter and government employee. Writer, photographer, pitbull wrangler, devourer of books and films and knowledge, gardener, hesitant self-taught cook, and brave little traveler. People say I should have been an archivist of some sort. I think I should have been a paleontologist - I’d be out digging right now. I have always had rescue dogs and you can see two of them throughout these pages.

Recently divorced after fifteen years. Still figuring out the life that follows. Over three decades, I lived in Seattle, San Francisco, and then Manhattan - now I make my home in rural New England. I like the quiet. I like the forest. I like snow in the winter. I like growing my own broccoli rabe. I like buying fresh, local goat's milk cheese.

This is chapter four.

Oh, I don’t know.
Should click “the link” and find out why I got this mail?
(Who do these people think I am?)

This is actually kind of funny …
Because I just opened my old email and my secondary email tonight for the first time in months only to find that I had numerous alerts that someone far, far away - Dominican Republic, India, and Taiwan - had tried to access those accounts with the correct password, but that Google/Gmail had blocked them because they were suspicious.
I just spent the last 90 minutes or so changing passwords on everything. Not just those passwords, but everything. And this comes through.
Unfortunately, that password in question was one Ben and I used for a number of joint things that he inherited (iTunes, for example) so he had to go through and do it, too.
