North Florida fundies?

[Hi, so happy to be here! Love the dining room school! Start my education!]

I know of the Wallers and a few others in Central Florida, but do yall know about people closer to the Georgia border? Without the grid (and thus air conditioning), how do they (and desert fundies) survive?

Thank you! (Bravest thing I've done all day, and thanks, TestAdmin for the double dog dare!)

The Morton and Sanders clans (see blog list) are Vision Forum fundies who live in rural Georgia and Alabama respectively. The Sanders run a farm in Alabama, and Noah Sanders just wrote a book about Christian farming.

Yay, I knew someone would take the dare :) Now that you've started posting you have to continue (it's a rule!) ;)

I was going to give you a gold star, but I didn't have one, so I give you a dancing ferret instead :dance:

Most of the fundies that we talk about don't live off the grid (probably because we talk about those who blog, etc, so the ones off the grid we just don't know about). So I would assume that they have AC (most houses in the south do, even slightly older ones)

I believe that the Kellers (Anna Duggar's family) live in northern Florida, but I'm not sure exactly where.

Once, on a family vacation, we stopped in Lake City, Florida, which is near the Georgia border. It was late, so we just checked in and went to bed. We needed breakfast and went to this mom and pop place across the street from the motel. All over the walls were posters about being Christian and loving Jesus or scripture (it's been over 10 years, so I don't remember exactly, but they were definitely Christian). The gift shop attached sold weapons (probably ammunition, too), including, IIRC, brass knuckles. The posters involved more Jesus, but with the clear message that Jesus wants us to be armed to the teeth. It really gave us the creeps.

I was literally just thinking about this. I grew up in south Florida and was involved in 4h. Every summer we had state conventions and there was usually a pretty large contingent of really strange, socially awkward kids. We eventually figured out that they were home schooled and very religious, and all from the northern part of the state. So, yeah, they do exist. I don't remember any of their names, but in the 15 years since I've been involved with all that it wouldn't surprise me if some were trying to make names for themselves by blogging.

Your topic made me think...has anyone ever made a fundie map? It would be a cool way to follow one's "locals"...

I mentioned something like this in the snark forum a while back, but I do not think anything became of it. I think it would be fun to follow local fundies and fundie churches.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
