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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Didja all notice that Mike Newdow joined A/N? He's the famous atheist that has been trying to have the "In God We Trust" removed from our currency. He's also fought many other battles on behalf of atheism. Google him for more information.

I've always liked gaga. But that is the stupidest name ever. She and Bennett are great together.

Loved the Ella, Joan! Oscar Peterson on piano. I saw bassist Ray Brown at Indianapolis' Jazz Kitchen about 16 years ago. My kind of jazz.                                                                              Ian, we watched the Bennett/Gaga show here in the states, too. I heard they were together again in Copenhagens' Tivoli Gardens sometime this year. (I was there 46 years ago!) The Lady surprised me--no Ella, but good.

Thanks for the video, Joan, I enjoyed it very much! It's such marvelous engineering! No honour for me though, I just happen to be someone who was born in this neighbourhood.

I grew up nor far from the Maastunnel (1942): two lanes for cars and a separate tunnel for pedestrians and cyclists. Like all children I screamed in the tunnel to enjoy the echo and I tried to guess where the lowest point was.

Bertold. Splendid. That is a keeper. 

Comment by Ian Mason on January 25, 2015 at 2:59pm

Signed and shared, Patricia.

Bertold, a great groaner there.

You haven't lost your humour, Carl, you jester.

Love Ella, Joan.

There is still class in mainstream entertainment. On New Years eve Danish TV showed a concert with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. It was great. Tony Bennett had to lean on the piano for most of the evening but was in great voice and Lady Gaga showed that she could sing standards with style.

Ooh! I've always wanted a dunce cap!

Bertold

(I've got to confess. I did chuckle).

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 25, 2015 at 2:33pm

Oh, boy, Bertold.  To the corner for you!!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 25, 2015 at 2:24pm

It's a little known fact that, in addition to his many historical conquests, Alexander the Great invented a unique means of enabling his soldiers to know the time. It was a swatch of cloth worn around their wrists and soaked in certain chemicals that changed colors when sunlight hit it at different angles. It was known as . . . Alexanders rag time band.
