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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

OMN(erves)! A local store that does delivery only makes the best macadamia & white chocolate chip cookies.  I sometimes say to *bleep!* with my blood sugar and order some.  I eat one, and my 250-lb sister gets the rest.

Another favorite Muppet (also created by Frank Oz):

booklover, you read my mind and posted your favorites before I had a chance! Grover is awesome and who doesn't love white chocolate chip cookies with Macadamia nuts? Pepperidge Farm's Tahoe cookies are sooo good!

Grover is my favorite, and lets have white chocolate-chip with macadamia nuts? :)

I love Frank Oz, who played Cookie Monster and Miss Piggy (and Yoda), but my all-time favorite Muppet has to be:

Anyone who can fit a private ice rink (among other things...such as my book collection) into a trash can wins my heart.

I do too! Here you go Sesame Street fans!

What cookie are we having today?

Comment by booklover on May 15, 2012 at 7:11am

I LOVE Sesame Street!  My sister found a thing to put on her Facebook wall that said "I'm still kinda pissed that they never did tell us how to get to Sesame Street." LOL!
