Latest Activity: yesterday

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 Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

Questions......

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Great pictures, Felaine. Just my kind of humour too.

I can almost hear you smiling, Melinda. Sounds like a great Summer ahead.

My daughter was about 2½ when she noticed. She walked in while I was in the shower. Asked "what's that?" "Daddy's willy" "Oh. Mum says dinner". End of story.

And Michael Bedard:

"Sitting Duck"

My fave, "Low Frog Along the Coast."

Now I have a print job I need to finish before I crash for the night.

DO look up Moskowitz and Bedard; one thing their gallery sites neglect to mention is that almost all of their works are visual puns... as in "Low Frog..."  I love that kind of stuff.

Buenas Snowshoes!

Hi, guys. Sorry I haven't been around lately, but I've been having another case of the glooms; not only do I have a terminally ill kitteh, but we've had house repair problems...last week we had to have major surgery on the drain system, and once that mess was cleaned up, the refrigerator/freezer quit.  Everything is fixed now, but I'm out about halff my meager savings.  so I have been spending computer time looking at some of my favorite contemporary artists to cheer me up.  I'll be posting a few samples so you can see why I love them. 

First, Stewart Moskowitz: Moskowitz - ENDANGERED SPECIES

Stewart Moskowitz - THE CORPORATION Penguins

Moskowitz - AQUARIUM - Vintage Art Print

I have prints of the last two; bought more than 20 years ago. The Penguin pyramid is titled "The Corporation"...appropriate, eh?

A box o' cats.  What more could you ask for? 

Good evening, Everyone.

Melinda, you sound like one very happy camper.  Sounds like you're going to have a great summer.

I like the spa kitty Steph, and the box full of kitties is great Melinda.

Great Lennon Quote, Ian. Love the LOL too. The cat's expression is priceless.

Booklover, your cat in the wall gave me a chuckle.

Thanks everyone for sharing. It's been long day and my brain is saying, "Good night". The rest of me better rush to bed ASAP.

Hugs.
