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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Exactly Chris.  FB limits what you can put though.  If you put certain things, it just won't accept it.  Another reason to not have Facebook! lol.

Atheism is not a religion. When asked for my religion or religious affiliation, I always answer NONE.

Comment by booklover on January 27, 2014 at 8:40am

Yes, Facebook lists Atheism as a religion.  One friend of mine said she didn't want to put Atheism as a religion, so as her religion, she said Science.

Grinning Cat, love the bald young lady and agree with your ? of Facebook listing atheist as "religious affiliation"! 

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 26, 2014 at 11:44pm

Joseph, I hope the "right" people pay attention to the anti-religious songs you sneak into your playlists! Let us know how it goes....

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 26, 2014 at 11:43pm

And yes, I saw Eats, Shoots and Leaves in a bookstore, and enjoyed browsing through it.

Facebook lists being atheist as a "religious affiliation"?

Joseph, good luck.

I hate posting on here from my phone, because auto-correct incorrectly changes things! So many typos that I didn't do!

Let us know how your FB experiment goes Joseph! I have gone back and forth on whether to stay I FB so many times! I like to get free samples I the mail, and now you need to "like" them on FB in order to get many of them. But I àlso "like" lots of pages that I get some good material from to post on here.
How many friends do you keep? I don't even keep 20 because I can't handle the religious crap. There still is some, but I also post very anti- right wing and anti- religious stuff. Once in a while one of my liberal or Atheist friends will "like" it.~Mindy
