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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Loren, If we lose our past discussions, I would rather put up with the inconvenience. So many times I go back to read about an individual and the challenges he or she faces. 

You do a wonderful job of keeping us informed, Loren. I agree with you that many phone calls might make a point to them. Tell them we need and want dependable service is a high priority for us and we want to stay with them, IF they can be more dependable.

Kathy, A/N out, and cell phones, internet service out!!! I hate to think  what winter will be. Whether rain, lightning, snow, downed lines, or just plain old OUT, we need to prepare! Get lots of candles, books, warm blankets, warm clothes, boots, matches, food and find someone with a fireplace if you don't have one. Mine is over 100 years old and I have never put in a new liner so that I can use it.

As some of you know, Ning has said that they're committed to straighten out these problems. Personally, I think we need to keep the pressure on them, and report every time the system goes down preferably in numbers.

Certainly we could migrate to another platform, but that may be more problem than it's worth, as well as potentially losing things we don't want to lose.

On top of the problems with atheist nexus our entire system went out for over six hours yesterday. It effected everyone's cell phones and internet services for a fifty mile radius at a minimum. I haven't been able to determine how far reaching it was.

Carl - you snooze, you lose!

Ian, there actually was not a patient zero. The name itself came from a typo. And it was never traced to one single person. Different strains showed up in different areas. The fascinating part was how very old blood samples were used to disprove the original theory.

Thanks, Flying Atheist. Just got internet back. It was a lengthy, frustrating experience. To tired now to actually catch up.

A really cosy fire, Daniel. Just right for the winter.

I would have thought that the spread of HIV lay too far back to be able to identify a "patient zero." The virus wasn't even identified for many years.

The orange candidate is wierd and scarier than Stephen King.

Carl, we need adult supervision.
