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.

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

While web surfing the other day, I surprisingly stumbled upon a Facebook page that had two photos of me from my college days.  I thought I'd share them with you.  The first photo was taken in May of 1983.  My 19th birthday would be two months later.  The second photo was taken in February 1985.  I'm second from the left.

OMNERRRVZ!  I love punz!  Whoopie!

That Guard Cat looks like a Spotted Bengal.....If I could afford another Fur-friend, I'd like a Maine Coon...or a Ragdoll. Or an Egyptian Mau.  There are several people in Cairo and Alexandria who rescue feral Maus from the streets, get them healthy and people-friendly, and then adopt them out all over the world. This is just one org: http://www.emaurescue.org/

I can't believe that these cats, who used to be worshiped by the ancient Egyptians, are now neglected, abandoned, poisoned, etc. by the current population of a land that used to have one of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world.  (During the time of Cleopatra, and earlier, it was a capital offense to harm one of these cats....even accidentally.)

Oh, I also love the "We All Live Without God" painting, too.  I've always wanted to change it so that a large ORNJ kitty is sniffing Adam's finger. Or maybe with Adam holding out a fish to the cat. The old man with the beard in the original painting doesn't do anything for me, but I doubt the Vatican would appreciate any alterations...

Pity.

A plethora of puns.

That is a good one Ian.

Comment by Patricia on January 19, 2014 at 2:08am

True, saving that one Ian.

A fun video, Felaine.

I wouldn't argue with that cat, Steph.
