Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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.

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 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

   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

Thanks for sharing pics and details of your family’s visit, Randall. If you haven’t taken sublingual B-12 to help fight your cold, I recommend it.

Sk8eycat, I agree with you about cell phone rudeness. Too bad an individual in a group cant’ just react that way. If you were alone with the offender, yes. Otherwise you’d have to overtly get the others to go along.

LOL, Joan. Cute comment on facebook unfriending.

I agree that storage is still a big problem for solar power at home, Joan. I was surprised that the system we bought and returned just had two lead acid batteries. Our house is flimsy, and I was shocked at how heavy the two solar panels were. Our roof might not have handled them with snow. I researched light weight solar panels, but that technology doesn’t seem mature enough yet. BTW, I made a mistake in not insuring the solar panel shipment, assuming that Fed Ex would handle glass carefully. Then the Fed Ex Ground guy who picked them up said they just stack boxes on top of each other in their trucks. So I might be out thousands. Will know in a week, I guess.

Charlie Girl is looking mature in that picture.

Smart politicians are always being ridiculed. It's the bully state of mind. I remember when Adlai Stevenson was berated for being too egg-headed. And Eisenhower was no dummie. And look how Pres. Obama is treated.

Mindy, thanks much for that great Asimov quote.

I just posted an important statement made by Chris Martinson that will help understand why the spread continues to grow between incomes of rich and poor.

Haven't had the machine on for a couple of days so now catching up.

I really hope all goes well, Carl.

Lovely family get-together, Randall.

Ruth, solar panels are popular as far north as Denmark and for the last few years there's even been a tax allowance for installing them.

One for you, Carl:

Special VI Morphing :-)

An excellent example of nice people morphing into wretched ones, right before our eyes. 

This treat was from my friend, Ed.
