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

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

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

When this company ran out of shovel sized boxes, it got creative:

Those companies are disgusting!

Better yet, hang up without saying anything.

Never say yes.

If a telemarketer asks a question, such as "Can you hear me?"

Bertold, cute play on words.

Thanks Chris and Carl. I think both commercials used the "try it, you'll like it" phrase. Hundreds of ads pop up in daily conversations (i.e. Wendy's "Where's the beef?"). We had better not get started!

Thanks for the microwave tips. I'll look for one that contains a convection oven so I can get rid of the toaster oven to clean up some of the kitchen clutter.

I purchased a referigerator from Sears. I don't remember the brand name. I understand that there are a few referigerator manufactures in the U.S. that sell under different brand names. It only lasted about five years.

My dentist told me to brush my teeth with baking soda. He said that neutralized the acid in the mouth which decreases cavaties. It also helps with acid reflux. He also said to sleep with a sativa soft lozenge between my cheek and gum. That prevents dry mouth and bacteria eats the sativa rather than attacking the teeth. I use Salese brand. An additional benifit is no morning breath.

I thought of Speedy Alkaseltzer not long ago. Belief is just, a swallow away.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 29, 2017 at 1:48pm

My old microwave oven is Whirlpool, and has been running for many years.  Of course that's only a sample of one.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 29, 2017 at 1:45pm

Amusing add.

I tried it.  I liked it.

When I was living at home, I used lots of Alka-seltzer, because I liked the taste, and Dad was paying for them.  Now, I use Tums.  Much cheaper and works just as good or better.

Actually, I just stopped using Tums because they stopped making sugar free Tums, and my supply just ran-out.  I get acid reflux most often just before bedtime when I've brushed, flossed & etc, so I don't want to put any sugar in my mouth at that time.

I finally found some Kroger brand (Fred Meyer) sugar free replacements for Tums, and will be trying them out the next time I need them.

I have to agree with Kathy, good microwave ovens can be purchased for far less than hundreds of dollars.  The one I got a few years ago from Best Buy was right around $100.  It's large capacity with a rotating plate and high wattage.  It's General Electric brand.
