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

This is too much of a most delicious irony for me to ignore.

First, most of us know Catholicism has a problem with sex, and especially with women.

Second, a post by Joan told us Terrence Meaden's words of a visit to about Stonehenge: "I just happened to be there at the right time of day because only when the light is right can you see it properly. During the summer months it is only obvious for about a hour each day around 1400."

Third, get that each day around 1400 hours. That's 2:00 pm.

Fourth, in San Francisco on a sunny February day at 2:00 pm, this survivor of twelve years in Catholic schools is near the foot of Starr King Drive, a few feet away from the Unitarian Church, looking up the hill at the huge Catholic St. Mary's Cathedral, and if you've ever seen the building you know its top is not the usual steeple.

Fifth, on the street before me is a shadow of the Cathedral. It looks exactly like the profile of the chest of an exceptionally well-endowed woman.

Thirty years earlier in English classes in Catholic schools I hear of irony. At last I understand it.

I agree that that is ridiculous Ian.  She is 21 now though, and she will have to choose to appeal that decision and find out how to do it, or do an UNpaid internship.  So many ridiculous things in life!

I think the face looks like "grumpy cat". Perhaps it stowed away on the Tardis and became a deity to my ancestors.

Can't expect logic and consistency from Believers, Felaine.

Lilie and Joan: I too experience technology and machinery as malign. As far as computers go, what can we expect from devices assembled by people working 15 hours a day on a shitty assembly-line in China? The problem might be with the mouse, Joan especially if it's a lap-top.

Melinda, that is unjust treatment of your daughter. Is there no way of appealing that decision? "Doesn't count because it's paid" is ridiculous.

These computers are mean.  I think they are out to get us.

My computer did it again, duplicates. So ... I shall "Add Comment" once and check back later if it arrived on the Comment Wall. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 22, 2013 at 4:37pm

That doesn't look any more like a carving of a face than the Man on Mars photo did.

I sympathize with you struggling with your computer, Joan.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 22, 2013 at 4:30pm
Sorry for the duplicates. My computer won't "Add Comment, so I re-post ... and get duplicates. Now my computer won't delete one. I really am trying to figure out what the problem is.
I have plenty of room in memory,
I emptied my cache,
I turned the computer off and let it rest for a while,
I deleted some files that I no longer want,

Any other suggestions. The poor old lady needs a rest, perhaps. She is so slow, I can go to the kitchen for a cup and return and she tries to send or receive.

I see the face Joan.  So many interesting things to learn.

funny LOL Cat Steph~ :)

Thanks Ian, she seemed more "up" today.  She had a good interview for a paid writing job at school for next year.  I SO hope she gets it!  My husband has an idea for an internship she could do this summer.  Get this.  She got HERSELF a PAID internship at a small newspaper here last summer. She's a Journalism Major. They didn't want an intern, she ASKED, and when they met her, loved her and agreed to it.  She went back to school last Fall and told her adviser.  Her adviser then told her it DIDN'T COUNT because it was paid!!! Aaarggh! Here she thought she was killing 2 birds with one stone.  Life.  Ya gotta laugh...
