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.

If you spend any time around YouTube and have any history of looking at atheist material (or even theist material!), you will inevitably run into: "XX Questions Atheists Can't Answer."  These are occasionally followed by: "XX Questions Atheists…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Hahaha.....I call it bull-headed stubbornness.

Patricia, good news that you are doing your exercises, faithfully. It won't be long before you will be taking that route on your scooter to town, as you shared with us some time ago. You are one brave and determined person. 

Comment by Patricia on November 14, 2017 at 6:28pm

Chris, how many times do I have to say that I AM doing my physio, I AM doing my walking, & I AM doing what the doctors have told me.....SHEESH!

Comment by Chris on November 14, 2017 at 6:20pm

I'm glad your had your staples taken  out Patricia.

Again I would urge you to follow  Mary Ann Wilsons excercise routine. My underatanding is that you have to get the implant set through through walking - as painfull as it is.

Hi Randal,

Were you attempting to do a documentary series about China?

The reason I ask is because of the following post from you.

"World view of the Chinese government running roughshod over the people in order to modernize, etc., was negative. Eminent domain is a priority over there. But, it works. The people are heavily compensated for being forced to move. New homes/apartments are built and lots of money is given to those relocated. They grumbled at first, but now seem happy with their lives much improved. Below is a photo of a 60 yr old grandmother who we "interviewed" about her life then and now.

 I think the key word was "interviewed".

Beg the question.  No wonder no one wanted to look (or even talk with) at you.

On you next trip you may want to disect grasshoppers, or locusts.

Sorry for picking on you.

Blood thinner side effects are bad & 15 mores days to finish.

Yes, I have to limit myself but the biggest thing is not to bend any more than 90 degrees for 6 months. I am doing my physio on my own.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 14, 2017 at 5:38pm

Patricia, very good news! How do you feel now? Are you going to have to pace yourself?

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 14, 2017 at 5:34pm

Yay!  Glad to hear things are going well.

Comment by Patricia on November 14, 2017 at 5:25pm

Just got back from having my staples removed & in another 10 days, I can drive my scooter! Yay!
