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.

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

Chris, perhaps it's time for an upgrade.

Comment by Plinius on July 19, 2013 at 10:07am

You've outdone yourself, booklover: 131 times the same message in Outlook! I cannot guess why or how. But this pc does more things I don't understand, like starting words in the middle of a sentence with a capital letter - German made perhaps.

Poor Sheldon - one of the small news items was just that: the cat was found dead in the three-seater a month after he disappeared. Probably in a household of people without noses.

I'm glad you found everything out Patricia!  Your friend SHOULD be annoyed with her kids!  They were thoughtless.  You are a good friend to her.

Comment by Ian Mason on July 19, 2013 at 1:25am

That's good to hear, Patricia.

Nice to see the team and the shiny dome, Joan.

Comment by Plinius on July 19, 2013 at 12:35am

I'm glad you and your friend are all right, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on July 18, 2013 at 10:28pm

Isabel is annoyed, & doesn't understand why none of her other kids answered any of my messages, but what's done is done.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 18, 2013 at 10:15pm

That's great news, Patricia.  I'm glad all turned out well and that you now know that you weren't intentionally left out of the loop or ignored.  I'm sure you're breathing a big sigh of relief. 

Comment by Patricia on July 18, 2013 at 10:07pm

I also have lots of 'dots' between words in my address, so it made it hard to guess.

Comment by Patricia on July 18, 2013 at 10:05pm

Isabel is ok & her sister exaggerated the doctor's care thing. She saw a doctor right away to get her medical stuff in place & to get her disability badge.

She wondered why I hadn't emailed her until she discovered she'd left out a couple of letters in her son's email address so everything I sent wasn't getting there. She had also printed out everyone else's email addresses before she left England but in the packing, the ink blurred so she couldn't make out most of them. She emailed me 4 times but of course I didn't get any of them with her not able to read her list & was guessing.

Isabel finally gave up & phoned here today, but I was out so she spoke to my husband about what all went on. They had a lot of delay due to extreme weather in Calgary & backed up planes, customs, etc. Her poor kitty was caged for over 20 hours waiting to get though everything, but he's ok now apparently.

I'm just glad this is finally over!!! Thanks, to all for putting up with me.
