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.

Ever decide that you wanted to read the whole bible, cover to cover, only to realize half-way through Deuteronomy that the darn thing is industrial-strength BORING?!?  Well, never fear!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, has done the Cliff's…Continue

punishing doubt (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Oct 17. 2 Replies

If you are associated with religion and especially a fundamentalist religion, doubt is intolerable.  Certainty, however it may be achieved or imposed, becomes a necessary element, especially considering the utter dearth of any form of evidence or…Continue

A moment to relax and see the Earth from space; some how this comforts me.

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Qiana-Maieev Oct 16. 3 Replies

All the squabbles and struggles that I have do not compare with those of some others on this great planet. There are no boundary lines, no political arguments, no up or no down. What is, is. For right now, the scenes offer tranquility. Just the…Continue

Chris,  LOVE the dance! Thank you.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 10, 2012 at 4:56pm

Thanks for the dance Chris.  I didn't expect much when I started watching, but the more I watched, the more I enjoyed it.  Dancing with the seal brought a big smile.

I added it to my favorites, and watching it a second time brought  tears of happiness.

Dollar store cream rinse cat is funny.  

However, I must say I buy lots of things from the $1 store and most are well-worth-it.  Just a few months ago I found some meat-loaf microwave dinners that taste very good.

That is great, Chris! Brightened up my day no end :-)

Dear Flying Atheist, Bob Hope/aka Burbank Airport is a damn sight closer!  Like maybe a 10 minute drive, depending on traffic.  LAX is miles and miles away.

Uhhh...were you planning on travelling by conventional aircraft, or do you fly under your own power? (Just asking.)  ;>D

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 9, 2012 at 8:53pm

A nice spicy Bloody Mary with a big ole jumbo green olive and accompanied by stuffed jalapenos......Yummmmmm.  Sk8eycat, I'll be on the first morning flight to LAX!!

Melinda, I'm with you. I only go on facebook to see pics from family. I only have 8 friends, and they are all family, except 2 from AN. You can look me up if you want. You, I would accept. But don't feel obligated in any way.

Oh, and if the wine and bloody mary's don't work, it's on to mojitos! lol.
