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 Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

And now for something completely different:

The Ministry of Silly Walks is alive and well at a pedestrian crossing in Norway:

Just finished a really good book: "Dominion" by C.J.Sansom.
The year is 1952. In 1940 the British P.M., Lord Halifax surrendered to Germany after the fall of France. A Nazi-friendly government is now in power. Churchill, Atlee, Bevan etc. have gone underground to lead the resistance. In a Midland's mental hospital is a scientist who knows a dangerous secret and who has to be got out and sent to America. All of this complicated by the Great Smog of '52. A thriller that will do things to your heart rate and blood pressure.

An imagined history, but the main theme of nationalism has become murduerously relevant again the last couple of decades

My daughter asked the guy she's been seeing about his politics, and if he's religious.  He's a Liberal, and NO, he's not religious.  More and more to like about him! :)

only available in the US..... I'll wait.

Cosmos is on Fox on Sundays and the National Geographic channel on Mondays, but you can also catch it on CosmosonTV.com.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 14, 2014 at 7:48am

I keep missing Cosmos! Is it on a "cable" channel? I'm limited there, if so. I have the extreme basic package.

Great poster, Mindy. Stealing. Glad to hear that your daughter is getting out and enjoying life. One of the best natural medicines is social activity.

Have to wait for a Cosmos rerun - was too tired to stay up and watch it.

Comment by booklover on April 13, 2014 at 9:50pm
It was humid and warm the last couple of days here in Northern Illinois Ruth. Now it's raining, and possible snow tomorrow a.m.. Who knows what clothes we will need each day!
COSMOS was excellent as per usual tonight.
Exactly Felaine! They can believe what they want, but we have NO obligation to respect any insane beliefs.
