Default Hello Everyone

Are you folks OK with a token Christian? (Plenty of other Christians probably think I'm a heretic, so I guess that might fit.)

I encountered Gurdur via Twitter a few days ago, and curiosity has led me here...

Welcome, Justin!



You're by no means our only Token Christian; and in fact, many of those active on the Hub are Pagans (while Never and I are atheists). Fr. David Cloake, for example, used to post a fair bit here for a while. Come on in, we're not prejudiced!

Thank you. I'm most relieved, because as you know Christians are a persecuted minority in Britain these days. I know this because the Daily Mail tells me so...

You have a cat in your avatar. This means you get a free pass anywhere.

Welcome to the Hub!
Thank you! The cat's name is Shadow - he graciously allows me to share a house with him and feed him.

The simple answer is that we're not sure. He was a rescue cat, and estimated at about 5 years old when we got him in July 2008, so he's about 9. For ease of signing up for pet insurance I treated him the same as a race horse (which he isn't) and gave him a birthday of 1st January 2003. (Racehorses all have the same birthday - 1st Jan. of the year they were born.)

We have a better idea of the age of the other two. One was born at the shelter we got her from, and the other was still only a few months old when he was found. They are both moggies - she is a tortoiseshell called Ishtar, and he is black and white and called Johnny. Can you guess which name I chose?
