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

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!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

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

Is it me, or are other people having problems with no "Link" or "Photo" or the other usual things that make it easy to create a message?

Smashing pics/shares. This one I think of as "It tickles when you kiss me"

Memories:

 
From a friend who moved up to the Bay area about 20 years ago...I wish the writer of the article hadn't been so sneeringly snotty about ice shows, and I'd really like to see the entire collection of photos from the Chronicle's "morgue." Follies rehearsed and opened the new season show in SF for years; it was considered their "home."
 
Holiday did not play San Francisco, but we opened a "new" arena in Oakland from xmas 1967 through New Year's day 1968.  There must be HOI publicity pics in that collection somewhere.
 
Most of us did stay in hotels in SF, and the company provided a bus to take us across the Bay Bridge to Oakland every night.  We spent our days being tourists, including checking out Haight-Ashbury in its hippie heyday.  The art galleries were fun, but the real hippies were just depressing.  But I am glad I saw it all.
 
I would like to explain to the "journalist" who wrote this thing why so many of us were willing to work in these shows for AGVA minimum wages, stay in sleazy hotels, live out of suitcases for 10 months a year, and smile every second we were on the ice.  We loved it!

Oh, owtch!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 5, 2013 at 2:36am

It is winter in Nebraska

And the gentle breezes blow, 

70 miles per hour at 32 below! 

Oh, how I love Nebraska 

When the snow's up to your butt; 

You take a breath of winter air 

And your nose is frozen shut. 

Yes, the weather here is wonderful, 

You may think I'm a fool. 

I could never leave  Nebraska, 

Cause I'm frozen to the stool.

Oh, thanks, everybody!  I really missed you all.

I did at least one stupid thing...I forgot to take my camera, so I don't have any recent photos of Duncan, and Sue (Duncan's "mom") has a new, funny-looking pitcher ... cat-shaped, of course.  I love it, and wanted to share it with all of you.  The style sort of reminded me of Searle's cats....goofy.  But....Sue is going to the Tucson Gem and Mineral extravaganza for a couple of days in mid-February, so.....I will take my camera!

This is a photoI took of Duncan a couple of years ago...before he put on a lot of weight...he doesn't remind me of Fred Astaire anymore:

I'm puttin on my top hat...
