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.

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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Some of the things I like about my new computer are:

1.  The word processor is much easier to access.

2.  The old computer weighed 20 pounds, but my new one weighs only 2.8 pounds.  The TV/monitor weighs only 7 pounds, making a total of 9.8 pounds, less than half the weight of the old one.

3.  The old computer used about 50 watts of power, but the new one uses about 5 watts.  The TV/monitor uses 18 watts, bringing the total to 23 watts.  Less than half of my old computer.

I'm sure there will be other things I like better.

Joan, I don't have a touchscreen on my Mac Mini.  They made it for people like me that don't have much money.  For $449, there is no screen, keyboard, or mouse.  My old iMac is too old to be used as a screen, so I'm using a cheap TV/monitor that I bought for another purpose that didn't work-out.  I'm using the same kind of wireless mouse and keyboard that I used on my old iMac.  I have two sets because I kept one in the car when I accessed the net at the library.  The keyboards have no pad.

Beautiful heirloom, Ian! A pity Kipling didn't write about character building for women. Beautiful embroidery! By Grandma?

Joan, the local job center is trying to organize another 'practical' period for me at a local company. I don't know if that will lead to anything but I refuse worry about such minor things as work.

Nice site, Joan! I started teaching a fortnight ago, and most of the students I knew already. They are all interesting in their own way, but it depends what you want to see..
