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.

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

Chris, I'm heartbroken watching the senseless destruction of human and cultural antiquities.  I'm a peace-loving person, but these people need to be eliminated off the face of this earth.  Their lives contain no intrinsic value, just hate, destruction and annihilation.

Nearly forgot. In Copenhagen bicycles rule. Everyone else has to keep a look-out and dodge.

A bit late but Happy Birthday Chris.

Just got back from Copenhagen where I've been visiting my daughter and her bloke. The young couple seem to be getting on well; they laugh a lot together, which is a good sign. They've got a nice flat, near the city centre but with an expanse of green to one side too. We did eating and chatting, very relaxed and pleasant. Thursday I took myself off to "Arken" and then to a Kraftwerk concert. A lovely couple of days.

I saw that on the news and couldn't watch it. Sickening. It makes me more of a misanthrope than ever.

Comment by Plinius on February 27, 2015 at 12:58am

I get so angry at IS for what they're doing in Nineveh! I know they hate people, and science, and freedom - and now they're destroying the antique monuments. Thanks to religion.

I can't speak for how Sk8eycat meant it. Only how l perceived it. I do have a very odd sense of humor.
Comment by Plinius on February 26, 2015 at 1:20pm

I hope she'll be back. I can understand her - I also felt like running away in stormy weather, but I stayed; you can't run away from such things. Or you must want the hermit-life.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 26, 2015 at 1:03pm

I miss having Sk8eycat here on a regular basis.  She pops in and out as a member and then a non-member.  I wish she'd stay, because I adore her and her musings.

I enjoy Felaine's humor, with the possible exception of that remark, if it was humor.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 26, 2015 at 12:38pm

I'm quite literal minded as well.  I took Felaine's remark as literal, and still am not sure.
