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 on Saturday. 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

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

No treatment so far, Quiana. What worries me most is that I'll slowly get deaf, and I had planned to go on teaching for years. But in time we'll see what hearing aids can do.

They are all excellent!

GC. Loved the 25 reasons. I hesitated to click it because I've always loathed the man. Glad I did.
Comment by Loren Miller on September 16, 2016 at 9:58am

GC, your sites on vaccines & autism and ministers forced to marry gay couples are PREMIUM!  Thanks for putting those up!

Comment by Plinius on September 16, 2016 at 9:46am

A present but from whom? Sinterklaas? Anyway, I've got Ménière - a present I can't refuse. It explains a lot about dizziness, deafness, etc. Dank u, Sinterklaas!

Loren, that site "25 Logical Reasons to Vote for Donald Trump" actually makes a lot of sense. I will be sure to go out and vote on November 8!

(If you use a script blocker like NoScript, you'll need to allow 25logicalreasonstovotefordonaldtrump.com and createjs.com.)

With similar concise, authoritative information that doesn't pander to Big Pharma or liberal media lies, there's "How Do Vaccines Cause Autism?" (scroll down for a link to peer-reviewed research) and "Number of Ministers Forced to Marry Same-Sex Couples" (click on underlined numbers for details).

Thanks, good people. These bursts of running around probably show how easily amused I am.

Trump: I wish the whole thing was a bad TV show I could turn off. The problem is that the incumbent of the White House affects my life too.

Ian, you never cease to amaze me.  Congrats on your marathon run..

Loren, your link works fine for me.  Very funny.

Cute dog and cat pictures.

I was wondering if a dog or cat could be trained to leave the house when the smoke detector comes on.  I imagine part of the drill would need to include humans propping open the door upon leaving the house. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 13, 2016 at 10:27am

Wow, I got behind here rather quickly.  Lots of posts.

Qiana and Joan, luckily I've never been in an emergency landing or have had to evacuate an airplane. In fact, most flight attendants will work their entire career and not have to go through that experience.  None the less, it's the single most situation that we are heavily trained to be proficient.  Once a year all flight attendants must return to training headquarters to be evaluated and re-certified to perform evacuation functions.  Step by step movements and vocal commands are in place to save precious time and must be followed and executed correctly.

The link still works for me, Idaho ... though the result isn't quite what one might expect!  Anyone else?
