Respecting religious differences in emotionally charged conversations?

I'm an atheist. I don't wear this fact on my sleeve. Most of the time, I actively avoid religion as a conversational topic. There are some conversations, however, where you can't duck the topic, because you're providing support to someone who has experienced a personal tragedy, such as the death of a loved one, and in the course of that conversation, they will invoke their religious beliefs. The question I am posing is: how can I provide emotional support and maintain proper boundaries while respecting their beliefs and my own as well?

Where is a good small city with decent weather for happening couple?

We are looking for a small city without cold winters that has a large body of water - no inland towns for us- and is vibrant, cultured and intelligent. We have lived in LA, NY and Miami and are now in Durham, Nc - finding it too woodsy and land locked and way to hot in the summer here. We both work and are in our early sixties.

Blanking your blank

I'm compiling a list of "life goals" that are framed in a specific way. Examples of what I'm looking for include:
  1. "Shooting your age" (in golf, shooting a score lower than your age)
  2. "Kicking your height" (As made "famous" by Karl Pilkington.)
  3. Any others? I'd really like to keep them in the format of "Blanking your blank".
Thank you.

Action & Procrastination

Not sure how to say this, but I think that I am procrastinating on things even when I seem to be busy doing other things. I need to get to a point in my life where I am taking consistent action rather than thinking about doing things. [more inside]

Requested video cannot be displayed in your region

In the last few days I've received this message when trying to watch local content on CBC or Radio Canada: "The requested video cannot be displayed in your region". Perplexed because I am actually in Canada. Has my IP address been compromised? Is there a somewhat easy not too techy fix out there.

Florid Victorian "Curb your dog" sign in Lynton, Devon?

Back in 1996, Heather and I visited our friend Jason in Bourne End, northwest of London, and spent a few days in Lynton, in Devon. There was a funicular from Lynton to Lynmouth, and we used to take the train from Lynton down into town and wander around in search of scrumpy. As we got off the railway, at the mouth of the Lyn, we found ourselves on the west bank of the Lyn, and IIRC there was a building right about there with the best ever Victorian-latinate-lingo "please curb your dog" sign I've ever seen.

What is the origin of the word 'Your' (as in 'Your Majesty' 'Your Honor', etc)

PersonalPronounFilter: What's the origin of the word "Your" in "Your Honor," "Your Majesty," and "Your Excellency" (among many others)? Why not "My Majesty" or "The Majesty?" Isn't the Queen supposed to be the source of my majesty? She sure as hell doesn't get any additional majesty from me.
