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.

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

I just flew with a pilot at my company who showed pictures to me that he took from the cockpit when he was flying into LAX on the same day of the shuttle landing.  They were lucky enough on their approach to be landing at the same time on parallel runways.  And what a treat for a plane full of passengers as well.  Wish I could have seen that.

Hi!  I'm up to my eyes in Pet Press work today and tomorrow, but I HAD to show you-all this photo.  (Please click the link to read the article and following comments.  SOME people actually know something about photography and telephoto lenses!  Amazing!)

Shuttle Endeavour passes the Hollywood sign.

Hi, Stlcharliebrown.  Welcome to the site.  I'm not sure about t/a.  Can you provide the context in which it was used?

Comment by Stlcharliebrown on September 26, 2012 at 2:01pm
I'm new here and I have a question. Someone was talking in a post and used the abbreviation a/n for athiest nexus, they also used the abbreviation t/a. What does it mean it was in reference to another site.

Good morning Tony Carroll, John Denver is always a goo way to start out a rainy day. John Denver was the first concert I ever went to at age 8. It was too loud and we had to leave. LOL

Different and still Mozart! Thanks for the video Ian!

This site, full of beautiful photos, funny animal shots, great stories, lovely music, refreshes my spirit. I'm off to bed with a light heart and happy thoughts. Good night all.

Hey Steph. Yes, I do, but this song really gets to me for some reason. I've never been to the high country, but I can see it in my minds eye when I hear The Eagle and the Hawk.

 "Goll darn it Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a $20 whore".

One of my favorite movies of all time, Napoleon. Thanks.
