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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

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've been having the same problem as Randall.

It's been a nice weekend. A friend who needed to talk came over and we did some eating and chatting then watched "Father Ted" on DVD. It's amazing that Irish TV could get away with that kind of satire 20 years ago.

Randall, I'm having the same problems. Tried to send Joan an email last night and at some point it just evaporated into the unknown.
These problems have become persistent and frustrating as hell
Comment by Randall Smith on October 30, 2016 at 7:38am

As what is happening at this very moment, A/N seems to come and go. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Very aggravating and frustrating. I'll make a comment, hit "Add Comment", and nothing happens. Later, I notice that my comment was sent, unbeknownst to me. I did write to Ning this morning to express my anger. We'll see what happens.

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. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 29, 2016 at 3:56pm

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.

Affected.

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!

Comment by kathy: ky on October 28, 2016 at 12:15am
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.
