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 Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

Questions......

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

A help sign that works better is a sign that you change every day as long as you need no help. Could be flags or cards in the window, e.g. card 2 on even days and card 1 on odd days. Now you only need a neighbour who'll check the sign every day....

I'd love to send you a cellphone, Felaine, but I have no idea if a European cellphone works over there.

I can't imagine being out on a surf board in that weather. Well, the fact is, I wouldn't be on the board in 75 degrees in Hawaii. I don't get a big thrill out of adrenaline charges. 

Thanks Carl. I hope I am not too pedantic. I love life, and I want to know what is going on. 

Good health, dear friend. Take care.

Yes, Joan, on Halloween we had very strong winds and big waves that crashed ashore.  It's been all over the national news which is rather ridiculous because that kind of weather event is commonplace here.  I don't know why the media is making such a huge deal about it.  The lakefront bike and jogging path has been closed and parts of Lake Shore Drive is flooded with water but is still open to traffic.  This is nothing out of the ordinary, as it happens several times a year, be it with rain or snow.  We've always had days like this. 

P.S.  I don't see you as a negative person either, Joan.  Quite the opposite.  In fact you are an inspiration to me.

Wow, those are monstrous waves. You folks must be getting smashed! How are you holding up?

Ian, you are a genius! This is splendid. Worthy of a post on Facebooks. Do you want me to attribute it to you or do you want to be anonymous? I fell in love with Denmark when I was there. Now, I know where I want to retire from retirement.

And this is before a bit gets cut off.

Nice one, Felaine.

I never imagined you as wanting to take the ticket out. Howl with laughter, yes: spit and scratch, yes, but not that. Hope the dark clouds get blown away.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 1, 2014 at 9:59pm

Felaine, thanks for the link. I hate to be such a bother and really appreciate that you are willing to help when I am out of the loop as far as links are concerned.
