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

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

Questions......

   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

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

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

Love the mouse picture. Am gonna collect it. Thanks.

As Melinda and Steph have said, I am sorry to hear about yours and everyones family troubles. We all have them. I'm just glad you have extended family to turn to. Love. It truly DOES make the world turn. We are here also, though all we can do is offer our love and support long distance. But you always have that. Best to you and yours. Be well.

So sorry to hear about your family troubles. I think we all have family troubles of some sort. I am glad you had some support through your cancer treatments and that they were there for you.

I am like you Idaho Spud and prefer no visits at all.

And that's exactly what I get - no visits - and I am just fine with that.

Comment by Steph S. on August 22, 2012 at 6:30pm

I love the mouse picture Patricia! So cute!

Comment by Steph S. on August 22, 2012 at 6:30pm

Here's a black top hat - since we are talking about hats.

And .. it's black! : )

So, it's my kind of style.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 22, 2012 at 4:47pm

Sorry to hear about your parents Patricia, but pleased to hear about all the other good peeps in your corner.  

I also don't want any "duty" visits from my family.  They are all firm Mormons, and Morons put a lot of emphasis on duty.  So, I get the idea that their visits are mostly that, and I would rather have none.

What a wonderful group of friends' messages to awaken me to a new day!. 

Tony, your poem set a perfect tone. 

Ruth that sweet photo prepares me for my little mouse family that lives in my garden and make crunching sounds as they break open bird seeds and scamper just out of my vision. They are part of my family and your sweet photo reminds me of that fact.

This is funny - dogs and baby.

Oh and Tony that was a lovely poem you shared with us - you have real talent!
