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

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

And I won't be confident of Pennsyltucky's vote until it's over... the very blue Philadelphia area is far from a snapshot of the state average!

[sigh] You guys keep underestimating Cleveland, don't you?

We FILLED downtown Cleveland to celebrate the Cavs' victory, and they're the newcomers here.  Anyone who wants to make such assumptions about The Best Location In the Nation has NO IDEA about us.

Speaking of incredible sights, this also happened in Chicago:

Cubs World Series celebration ranks as 7th largest gathering in human history

Loren, I don't believe this would have happened in Cleveland.

Chris, I don't know what else to say about the NASA photo you posted, but it is really F'n cool. I love when natural phenomena play tricks on our eyes and minds without using artificial manipulation.

And now, a little something to lighten your day:

Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the fandango?!?

Joan, I saw the same story about the Siberian snowballs yesterday on BBC. Their article has a little more explanation of how they are formed. According to the article this has also occurred in Finland and also right here on Lake Michigan just last year. I seem to recall reading about it in the local news.

I'm not getting notified either, Carl.  You might Report an Issue on it.  Think I will, too.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 7, 2016 at 9:44am

Is anyone here experiencing problems with notifications from A|N?

I'm not getting notified when someone posts in a group I belong to or in a discussion I participate.

I checked my overall email settings here on A|N and all are the same as they've been for years.

Chris, that is an opportunistic photograph if ever I saw one.  Thanks for posting!

Joan ... that's just ... WEIRD!
