Latest Activity: yesterday

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 don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

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!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

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

Chris, thanks for the information you shared. I am sure your experience is valid for you. We tried several things, including drinking lots of water, making some changes to my diet. I don't know if an 80-year-old lady has any hormones left. I'll keep you informed,

Ian, as foreign a language I n'er have heard, I think  I got the punch line. I will have to listen several more times before I catch the full meaning. The poor fellow with his chin out of the water, said, " three ha'pence a foot!" Is that some kind of stubborn or not?

Thanks for the sourdough information Joan.  Hope your operation and recovery go well.

Surgeon at the operating table: 'I swear, if anyone says Thank God after this I’m putting the tumor back in.'

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 20, 2016 at 7:51am

Joan, I hope the surgery goes well and brings you relief, with full use of your hand soon!

Good luck, Joan. 

I don't know if I've posted this before but this is Noah's story as it happened in Lancashire.

I had a few years of carpal tunnel trouble, but I was told to use less salt and to wait some time until my hormones calmed down. That solved the problem - so far.

Thanks for the good wishes. I know that not all surgeries are successful. I have lost all feelings in my hands, have terrible night sessions of waking up with asleep hands and jump around the bedroom waving my arms trying to get circulation back into them. The neurological studies reveal some severely blocked whatever it is that gets stuck. I sought a second opinion, and he confirmed the diagnosis, treatment and expected to have a good outcome. I wear night braces that help a lot. I tried chiropractic with the supervision of a neurologist and still have no finger feelings. 

So, this next step makes sense to me. I'll keep you informed about the outcome. It is nothing; I asked to have mirrors set up so I can watch ... we will see. 

Comment by Plinius on August 20, 2016 at 12:27am

Good luck, Joan! I hope the operation helps - it doesn't always lessen the trouble, as far as I know.
