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

Thanks FA....that was most enjoyable. Am a long time music lover & have a huge variety in my collection. Used to play sax myself, but was not talented enough to go anywhere with it.

Grinning Cat, thanks for the computer instructions. I like your clue on making passwords.

The Flying Atheist, I am impressed! I see you easily, thanks for clueing us to where you are in the orchestra. Did you play when you were in school? How did you pick the sax? Do you play other instruments?

Thanks G Cat.  I thought I knew all about passwords, but didn't know about the memorable phrase idea.  Sounds like a good way to generate a password that I can remember.

You never know what you'll stumble upon when surfing the internet.  I just found two videos of the community band in which I play saxophone.  These were recorded two years ago.  I thought I'd share a little bit of what I do in my free time.  I'm third row on the right, fourth person in.  I hope you enjoy.

Several people have had problems with posting pictures from webmail such as Yahoo Mail. (The picture that works for you, but not other people, is coming from your private email account.)

The solution is to download the picture to your own computer (right click and "Save picture as..." or something similar), then use that copy in your A|N post. The second button in the toolbar, "Add Image", in the group to the left of bold, italic, etc., lets you browse for a picture on your computer and upload and include it.

Oh, and it doesn't hurt to repeat this advice about passwords: words in a dictionary, including foreign-language dictionaries, are NOT good passwords. Hackers routinely use word lists to guess passwords, and they automatically add variants like "!nc0rrect".

A better tactic is to take letters from a memorable phrase, such as "The Flying Spaghetti Monster likes chocolate chip cookies with extra hot sauce", giving TFSMlcccwehs.

Cute pics booklover and Ian. I'm catching up on posts here.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Sk8eycat, you seem to have a history of not being able to post your cartoons correctly.  You're reminding me of "Uncle Don Reads the Funnies" from radio days.
