Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

Sorry about your kids farm Randy.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 24, 2014 at 7:32am

We received 5.5" of rain the other morning--on top of an inch the day before. My poor kids lost a major portion of their organic farm vegetables, either by drowning or completely washed away. Devastating.

I took my grandson to the annual "Summers End Festival" in my small town (Rossville) of 1700. Parade (mostly old tractors), car show and booths, and famous Lions Club ice cream. We had fun. And no rain. Fireworks lit up the sky as a closer to the day.

I enjoyed reading the comments from you all the past 24 hours. And I'm a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory!

Ian, back in the 70's I had a tuxedo T-shirt.  Now THAT was classy!

This year is moving along rather quickly.  I was in Walgreen's Saturday night and all the Halloween candy was out and on display already!

This really has been a marvelous summer weather-wise.  Much cooler and less humid than normal.  Perfect summer days.  Of course I think we deserved a nice summer after the extraordinarily cold and bitter winter we experienced.  Now I'm seeing news articles predicting the coming winter will be more of the same bitter cold.

Joan, I'm curious what your zucchini dinner consisted of.  Zucchini can be so adaptable for a wide variety of culinary uses.

Thanks Chris, this was the prettiest day I think I have ever spent. I was in the garden by 10 AM, delayed because of answering mail, and I staid out there until 6: 30 PM. Came in and made a wonderful zucchini dinner. Just a beautiful 77 degrees with another cool day tomorrow.

I'll join you!  >^.^<  Have a lovely day, all of you!

The hugs feel so good!

Comment by Ian Mason on August 24, 2014 at 12:55am

Lovely hugs :-)

My brother had a T-shirt when his children were younger, saying:

Bank of Dad

CLOSED.
