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 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

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

Diet After Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

I'm sure you have all this information, and probably a lot more. I had a friend with GERD and this is the information source he used.

Melina, is neuropathy of the digestive-system like neuropathy caused by diabetes? I read just a little via my medical newsletters. Here is one that is brief, but may offer information. If you want more, I will gladly pull out some of my old materials. 

Diabetic neuropathy
I am so sorry to learn of your difficulty and relieved that you have a physician who recognizes the symptoms and has given you some relief. 

Now, the next trick, how to flourish, given you have a health problem. It sounds like your family gives you good emotional support. 

Please keep us posted on how you are doing, anything new you learn, and even turn to us to rant.

That cat in the video is so smart to use a fork to eat - how awesome. I really enjoyed that video Patricia.

Comment by Steph S. on September 18, 2012 at 5:27pm

I can see them better now in the picture Patricia - thanks for posting your bird pictures.

I love that Lolcat Melinda. Glad to hear you are feeling better after going to the doctor.

Patricia thanks so much for the video! It's great

Melinda, I'm glad to hear you're doing better.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 18, 2012 at 3:24pm

Melinda, glad you doctor's run went well, and hope that your adjustment to your meds works for you. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 18, 2012 at 3:22pm

Patricia, what a delightful video of kitty eating with a fork. I don't know if this will work, but this cat and its human photographer have remarkable videos here as well. Let me know if you can't see them.
