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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

Oh! Mindy! How awful. Feeling unwell just sucks. I know you have tried everything. The things we suggested didn't work or you had tried them before. So! Now that we know your reality, how can we be supportive of you in a way that helps brighten your day? If you find anything that helps, let us know so we can give it a try.

I know a few members here are from Canada, but I don't know how many, if any of you live in or around Ottawa. I don't mean to sound like a downer, but  what happened in Ottawa today is awful. And  I just want to say that I'm sending all my  love and thoughts not just to the people of Ottawa, or the Ontario Province, but to everyone in Canada today.

Ian, that's a cute little ditty.  Now time for a cup of tea.

Yes, thanks Carl.

Spud, here's the link for the cat gif.  Does this work for you?

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well, Mindy. Hope the outing and lunch cheer you up.

Carl, that space cat video is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time!

How can I get a copy of it?  I found a longer version on Youtube, but I like yours better.

Randy, I agree with Grinning Cat.  You should consider using professional piano movers.  That's precious cargo!  I have an upright piano that I promised to give my niece when her and her husband bought a house.  Well.....now they have a house.  I have other pressing issues at the moment, but eventually I need to ship that piano from Chicago to Pittsburgh. 

Mindy, I'm sorry to hear your not feeling well at this time.  I hope your visit with your daughter brightens your day!

And I hope you feel better quickly, Mindy!
