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

The house is so empty when our pets aren't home! I hope she gets better soon, Randall!

When my one year old dog (Molly) suddenly became lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink, I took her to the vet yesterday. She had a very high temperature. I though food poisoning from a carcass of some sort. They say "infection". She stayed overnight. I'm to pick her up this morning. Gone for a day and I miss her!

"We wish you a happy birthday,
A joyous and celebrated birthday,
To you, dear Carl,
We wish you a long, long life!"

(sung as a round, to William Shield's tune that's also used for the Girl Scout song "Whene'er You Make a Promise", and for Christine Lavin's "A Christmas / Kwanzaa / Solstice / Chanukah / Ramadan / Boxing Day Song")

Carl, in cricket parlance that's "a half-century, not out". Well batted, sir.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 5, 2014 at 3:43pm

Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone!

Long ago Loren recommended this TV series and I was able to find it on the internet. This commentary strikes a bell not often played on commercial TV. Enjoy! ... that isn't the right word, well, anyway, thanks Lore. Are there any new programs of that quality on the air/internet?
