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.

A Prayer for Our Nation (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia on Tuesday. 1 Reply

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 11. 30 Replies

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Eating Our Own: How You Can Save the Movement (David Smalley | The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Daniel W Aug 27. 11 Replies

While I've been peripherally aware of him for a while, David Smalley has not spent much time in the center of my focus when it came to scoping out atheist material on YouTube or elsewhere ... at least up until now.  His talk – Eating Our Own – came…Continue

I wear a wristwatch when I'm out. When you're a "bus-stop cowboy" you need to know the time. I use digitals because the ordinary clockwork breaks down when I wear it.

I can't find Learners Coffee Shack, Randall. Can you help? You talked about other groups before and I couldn't find them either.

And I wear a wristwatch, outside the house. I really need it when teaching. I've got a cellphone, but I hardly ever use it - I don't feel comfortable with the radiation. I know it's not much radiation, but I became really careful from the day my friend got breast cancer from a beeper she pinned on her clothes.

Randy, I think you're right about wristwatches.  Myself, I never wore one because my skin hated it.  I carried a small digital watch without the straps in my pocket until I got a cellphone.

I noticed it was friday the 13, and I say big frigggin deal!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 13, 2015 at 7:43am

For those of you that remain in this group, I'm changing the subject. 

First, not only is today Friday the 13th, but  we'll have another in March! Talk about a double whammy, that is, for those that are superstitious.

Second, does anybody wear wristwatches anymore? I seldom see them. I guess people use their phones, etc. Glad I don't have stock in Timex, etc.

One more thing: Learners Coffee Shack group is open for business. I'm usually a one person member. No disagreements there!

This nastiness has no place here. Agree to disagree and leave it at that. This is, after all, an online forum and no-one gets hurt. To quote Jefferson on belief: "it neither breaks my leg or robs my purse". Cool heads, please.

Wrong time of the month, Mindy?

HAPPY DARWIN'S DAY

From the slime of the sea to the stars, we have consciousness of this very small part of time.

The kid is just pretending to crank up the dog's tail. The dog isn't being harmed.
