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

Yes Tony, that's what what I thought too. I was born in a closed reli community, and I still remember the shock and the wonder of discovering different people - so I wish the young man the same.

They both look delicious, but not on my diet. As a diabetic I avoid potatoes and sausage. Ah, memory lane. At least If can remember what such food tastes like.

Bubble & squeak

I make it with left over roast beef, potatoes and any vegetables I used with the roast. Cabbage goes well with this.

Mindy, wonderful story of your son' expression of affection. Is he as expressive when not under the influence of anesthesia?
Yes, Banger is a sausage and Mash is mashed potatoes.

Tony, outstanding film, "The role of democracy". Brian Cox is our newest Carl Sagan. I just get goose bumps when I watch or read anything by Cox. Thanks.

I think a banger is a sausage?

sk8eycat, what's a "banger"?

Joan, I went to the Diabetes group and saw a like on my discussion. So I pressed it, thinking it would tell me who liked it. The like jumped, momentarily from 1 to 2, then reverted to -1. I appreciate your interest. Guess I'll never know what happened.

Tony, Brian Cox's video was great. However, I don't agree that today's society is entirely based on science and the technology arising from it. Our society has loads of superstition, hatred, structural inefficiency and insanity built into how it works. We have a long way to go before we have a science-based society, in fact most people can't even imagine one.

My son had his wisdom-teeth out early this a.m..  Very funny coming out of the anesthesia.  The pretty blonde nurse came into the room, and Cole held his arms out for a hug, and told her "I LOVE You!" lol.  Bought him pudding, ice cream, apple sauce, etc.  So I am babysitting today.  Very peaceful.  Just us and the animals relaxing together in the living room. :)
