Suggestion Saturday: October 27, 2012

Here is this week’s list of blog posts, pictures, websites and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Some People Are Going to Leave. I’d love to hear the story behind this.

Social Consumption Pyramid. If my family lived nearby I’d have a much easier time living this way.

Don’t Call Me Baby. Comedy gold.

We Are Atheism. An “It Gets Better” project for Atheists. It’s amazing to compare the wildly different experience non-theists have depending on where they live. Here in Toronto there’s so much religious diversity that most people don’t make any assumptions about this topic and don’t care what you believe. I have friends living in other communities who are social pariahs because they choose to be honest about their non-theism.

Civilized Politics. Here’s an interesting link for those of you who like debating controversial subjects. This message board was created by the same people who run Etiquette Hell and is designed to be a polite place to talk about politics.

Click Here to Win Autographed Books From Susan Hill. Ok, this is exciting. Susan Hill is the author of my favourite ghost story of all time, The Woman in Black. Until October 31 readers can enter a contest to win signed copies of all of her ghost novels.

The Midwife of Hope River kept me up late reading a few nights this week. Patience Murphy doesn’t know it yet but the U.S. has just begun to slide into the Great Depression. As the economy worsens and public funds for healthcare dry up she finds her role as town midwife expanding rapidly into social and political controversies. The boundaries between her personal and professional life also blur and some painful secrets from her past begin to worm their way into her present day life.

    Your social pyramid should have 4 weeks in AZ every January somewhere in there … 🙂

  2. Don’t forget about me! I want to meet Zora, too, preferrably when Lydia is in town!! That would be almost too much excitement! I can’t wait to read your suggestion, Lydia. I have quite a stack right now, though. Just finished reading Save Me by Lisa Scottoline which was a pretty good read-Richard actually read it too! Haven’t taken time to look at the blog info yet!

  3. Ok- that pyramid made me laugh out loud. As you know, I like posting ‘food’ pictures!
