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 Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat on Monday. 24 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

grooming minds (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Aug 10. 20 Replies

There are likely very few among those who frequent Atheist Nexus who would argue against the idea that indoctrinating children with religion is at minimum less than moral or ethical and more likely considered child abuse. Personally, I have aligned…Continue

Why is it that I love the aroma of coffee brewing (makes me hungry...for breakfast), and enjoy coffee ice cream and frozen yogurt, but I don't like coffee as a drink...not even the chilled, sweet, creamy stuff?

I love tea, all sorts, and I grit my teeth (or say something rude) when certain hyper-conservatives refer to themselves as the Tea Party.  I call them the Pee Tarts.  And I hope they fail so badly this November that they just fade away...or implode.

You guys should be a member of the "Useless Without Coffee" group here on the site. I'm a member and I have a discussion on different coffee roasts and the flavors they yield. Dark Roast and Expresso are my favorites. But I love all types of coffee.

I am looking for a place to buy different brands in sample sizes, any ideas guys? I haven't yet met a coffee I didn't like!

Sounds like a great cup of coffee Write4U I will have to try that. I love trying new coffee.

Warning: It will make you crave sweets!

Hey Tammy I haven't tried Macadamia Nut Creme but now I think I will. Sounds delicious.

LOL my mom has started to have that problem with coffee and switched up to mixing it half and half they seem to think she was getting too much caffeine so she drinks decaf tea and mixes her coffee, seems to be working a little better.

As for the Kona coffees Ohhh Mai... Steph have you tried the Macadamia Nut Creme? So fabulous!

Some people have a dangerous blood/alcohol level, I have a high strung blood/coffee level!

I am too Tammy! I have all kinds of different roasts and different types of coffee flavors. I had a Hawaiian dark chocolate and macadamian nut coffee yesterday after dinner.
Comment by Tammy S on June 1, 2012 at 11:15am

I'm one of those any kind, all day long coffee drinker. I rarely find a blend I don't like.

Comment by Steph S. on June 1, 2012 at 10:30am
Hey Tammy! Cool another coffee drinker. I had dark roast this morning.
