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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

I've been voting by mail for more than 15 years.  I got tired of  my polling place being moved all over, trying to find a place to park, and shrieking kids whose parents don't sem to be able to teach them manners.

In Oregon and Washington, everybody votes by mail, and they have a much higher "turnout" percentage than the rest of the states.  It also saves cities, counties, and states a large amount of money.

I think it's time.

Ruth I tried to add you on Twitter so I could follow you - but you aren't showing up.

The sign is great Tony!!  Grinning Cat, I love the quote.  When there is a question on forms asking for your sex, I am always tempted to put "no thanks!" lol ( I know, old joke!)

I voted early, but in-person.

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 6, 2012 at 9:15am

Great sign, Tony! Back when forms asked for "Race:" I thought "Human" was the best answer.

(Who was it who said, "Labels make useful servants but terrible masters"? They can be a starting point for describing yourself and learning about others, but shouldn't box you in.)

I'll be going to vote (just across the street) soon. Yes, the experience of voting in person is one of our valued rituals.

Love the cat, Melinda. Just got up, heading out in a couple to my polling place. Hear they expect a big turnout. Thought about voting early, but I kinda like going through the experience of voting in person. Here's a little something for ya'll. Peace. See ya later.

Lillie: The poop charges an ocelot more for his fantasy business than McDonalds does for fries....

Loren: I'll check out thoseSF  groups tomorrow.  I'm currently rereading Mercedes Lackey's "The Last Herald Mage" series.  There's a lot of good stuff in there, but I still think Vanyel is a Drama Queen.

In the meantime, I need to crash.  G'Nite, all!

The Vatican and Macs combined! Now that WOULD be a plan for world domination!
