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.

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

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

Oh, Felaine, I like your story and statement that most cats have no sense of humor.  It's interesting!

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 10, 2013 at 6:35pm

Love that funny ad Felaine.

I know exactly why that cat is not speaking to anybody...he/she did some typically funny "cat thing," and got LOL'd at.

My fat black cat (long gone) used to play Ice Hockey in the kitchen; he'd come running when he heard me getting ice out of the freezer, and I'd put a cube on the floor for him to bat around.  One night the whole family came to watch the game, and Dad couldn't help himself...he laughed.  Helplessly.  The Devil immediately stopped playing, went to a corner, sat down with his back to all of us, and started washing his face.  It was like, "I don't know what you idiots are staring at; I've just been sitting here minding my own business."

Most cats have no sense of humor (but I love them anyway.)

Speaking of humor...here's an article about a funny Craig's List ad:

Read the whole thing.  KTHXBAI

I love the hands up tuna pizza cat, and the not speaking to you cat is funny as well.  What do you think that cat is doing Steph?

Yes - cats would love a tuna pizza.

Comment by Lillie on May 9, 2013 at 7:58pm

I have never eaten pizza with tuna but I love anchovies.  I'll bet kitties would, too.

Comment by Steph S. on May 9, 2013 at 11:44am

I love all the posts and pictures.

It's supposed to rain today.

I'm between semesters trying to rest up for the summer.

How is everyone?
