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.

So I've been thinking about this some lately, and I wanted to see what your thoughts were:I read a novel last fall that was making the rounds of Atheist blogs and what not called "Christian Nation", which is part alternative history and part…Continue

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

Happy Halloween my friends!

About to leave to start my day.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Ah, "Plotting Face" is getting ready for the "Trick-or-Treat" crowd.

I wish I could get a photo of Hairy Jerry's expression when he's looking directly into my eyes, but it's physically impossible.  He only does it when we're touching noses.  I can't tell if he's trying to "telepath" something to me, or if he just wants me to lick his face...which I won't do! I love him, but that's just a bit too much.

Love that creationist kitty that was doing "scientific research" - very funny.

Booklover that LOL is awesome.

Joan great picture of the cat and lizard.

I stay away from Fakebook - scary stuff there.

Joan, I love the kitten and the lizard, too.  That's such a typical "cat thing"...trying to get up the courage to swat something.  I've seen my older cat do that once or twice at the younger (but not by much) one when they chase each other around the house.

Ahah!  I had to laugh at this...people posting faked photos that were supposed to be of yesterday's storm...THAT'S why I call it "FakeBook."  Too many people who don't bother to fact-check anything before they post it or email it:

Ps: I love "I love you, couch." 

I think Hairy Jerry loves my glasses; he licks the lenses when I fall asleep with them on...then I wake up with my "vision" all blurry. Just what I need first thing in the morning - cleaning dried cat spit off my glasses. (Maybe it's a good thing that I don't wear contact lenses.)
