Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Very curious - a Betty Bowers video with NO Betty Bowers!  Yahweh IS here, though, and he's gotten all 21st century with his own cell phone!!!  Can't help but notice that he's a bit selective with just WHO he wants to talk to.  Meh ... got to keep…Continue

Mindy, love your cats watching TV of cat confronting mouse. I really like your comment to unfriend if he begins to spout religious crap. I had a similar experience, except the sister of a relative turned out to be more confident of her non-religion than anyone I know, aside from us, of course. 

Ian, happy to learn of your "nice" visit to England. I hope you found situations under manageable conditions there. You write in a happy tone, as well as having fun while there.

Hi Ian!  Glad to see you posting!  You and Carl are making me crave sweets!  Glad you and Ruth each only have one more antibiotic to take Joan!

So my sister's friend, who is 42, asked to be my friend on Facebook, because we both tease my sister about being a Packers fan (We are Bears fans!)  Anyway, when I told my sister he asked to be my friend, she said he'll probably unfriend me when he sees the Atheist things I post.  WHAT?  I HOPE she is not saying that she thinks I shouldn't post MY un-beliefs!  This was messaged to me, so I couldn't hear her tone.  Anyway, I told her maybe I'll unfriend him if he posts a bunch of religious crap. :)

Thankfully, only one more antibiotic to take ... then back to building normal. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 5, 2013 at 3:10pm

Good to hear from you also, Ruth.  Love the cat gif.  Hope you have a fast recovery. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 5, 2013 at 2:52pm

Sorry for my absence. Only one more antibiotic to take, then my bowels will get back to “normal” for someone with IBS.

It was nice to learn more about your husband, Patricia. Belated congrats.

Love the hugs and kiss LOLcats, booklover and Steph.

Ian, good to hear from you.  We were a bit worried about your absence in light of the recent storm that passed over Northern Europe.  Glad you're well.  Sounds like you had a nice visit.  My mother makes the most delicious ginger cake that she serves with homemade lemon sauce.

Patricia, I was just thinking about Sk8eycat yesterday.  I'm missing her also. 

Comment by Patricia on November 5, 2013 at 1:20pm

Thanks Ian, were worried about you after hearing of the storms in Europe.

Now Sk8ey is on my mind...............

Hello all. Just checking in. Have been in England for a week visiting family. Very nice indeed. Am a couple of pounds wider now. My sister-in-law bakes a great ginger cake. Been to the theatre in London too; Brecht's "The resistable rise of Arturo Ui". Very funny but also scary. Great production that I can recommend.

Hope you are all well.

Carl, a very special way to start my morning, with friends on Hang with Friends, and this sprightly music with Ethel Merman and Judy Garland.
