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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

I haven't been able to log on to AN for the last day so a slightly belated Happy New Year to all.

Your kitchen is something special, Daniel and I'm sure you're proud of it.

That's a lovely view, Joan. Are you enjoying it in a comfy chair with a hot drink?

1.3 million cable tv viewers were without their telly on new year's eve, incluing me. I don't care but there must be many who are angry at missing the queen's annual speach and the yearly showing of 'Dinner for One.'

I have a proposal: Let's eliminate the word "happy" in "Happy New Year" and substitute it with a more appropriate adjective. Happy belongs to birthdays, a one day event.

Unless I have access to a computer, I'll be away for the next two weeks--Mexico Beach, Florida! See you all when I return--and I will return!

A very Happy New Year to my dear friends of Atheist Nexus. 

Jared snow plowing around the fire pit where our Yule logs will burn tonight; Dominic watching.

Yes... Happy new year!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 31, 2016 at 3:30pm

Happy new year everyone. We're getting a touch of snow, and going to neighbors for cedar plank salmon.

Daniel, your kitchen can be featured in any of the leading magazines on design and kitchens. It looks like a comfortable kitchen in which to do our bread, pies and produce from your garden. Lights under the cabinets offer significant advantages. I envy you the garbage pull-out. Clearly, you put a lot of thought into the design. 

I'm happy to learn iron infusion gave you more energy, especially facing the task such as yours.

You do damned fine work, Daniel.  I wish I were that skilled.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 31, 2016 at 10:32am

Nice looking kitchen 2.0 Daniel.  

No, I'm not French.  Most of my ancestors lived in Wales, some in England, I think some in Ireland, and some in Sweden or Switzerland.  I forget which.

There must be a  a group of web sites that define last names.  I looked a number of years ago and didn't find any.  There are many  that attempt to define first names.

Daniel W the kitchen  is looking good. What kind of flooring did you install?

The hardwood floors in my house need to be refinished. Some of the boards are stained, warped and need to be replaced. To do this I should probably rent a storage container to put furniture and other household items in.  I'm thinking of having a contractor do the work because I don't have experience with power floor sanders. Moving everything around the house isn't something I can do by myself either. I've refinished floors in other places, but they only required taking the wax off and  scuffing with a pole sander. prior to nail settings (bla bla bla) and revarnishing.
