Hi everybody -

I’m a lifelong Hoosier and my husband is a Londoner (been in the States 13 years now). I’m originally from Indianapolis but moved to a little town outside the city 17 years ago. There’s either a gun store, a liquor store or a church on every corner :( and even though I’ve lived here for 17 years, because of my (non)beliefs I have no friends here and my husband and I basically keep to ourselves. The GOOD NEWS is - we have made our reservations for the Reason Rally bus leaving from Indy and we can’t wait to meet up with some like-minded people for a change smile

Anyway, that’s my intro -

Welcome to the CFI Forum, Rose. I think if you can’t find any friends where you are living, you might want to consider a move to somewhere more inviting. It’s sad not to have friends, especially over something so trivial as a lack of religious beliefs. But meanwhile I do hope you’ll join us here for awhile, and enjoy.

Cheers,

Ever been to Beverly Shores?

I’ve skimmed past there at least half a dozen times and never stopped - in fact, I didn’t even know it existed. It looks nicer than Indiana Beach, which is the only place we’ve ever gone in Indiana for a “beach”. Heh.
