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

   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

I've changed service providers several times. Direct is the best provider. Both user friendly and better quality signal. With fewer outages. I catch them on a fixed price deal.
Dish tried to sale me a monthly warranty on the equipment they lease to me. I always thought leased equipment was covered by the company you lease from.

Very good Kathy.  It appears to me those providers charge way too much. 

Also, what a good dog you have.

Daniel, regarding the Nativity scenes, ordinarily I'd say something like: "Put 'em back where you found 'em," but in this case, it's a bell you just can't un-ring!  OY!!!

Anyone else see this video from Montreal?  Ah, the joys of Winter!

The nativity scenes and menorah are a lot of fun.

Good for you, Kathy. It pays to be stubborn when dealing with companies.

Comment by Plinius on December 6, 2016 at 8:55am

I love the nativity scenes, Daniel!

Comment by k.h. ky on December 6, 2016 at 8:27am
I refused their warranty too. Lol
Comment by Randall Smith on December 6, 2016 at 8:07am

Well, I have to say, it's quite an improvement of picture quality and size  with 48" HD television! I'm ashamed I waited this long. I thought the flat screens distorted shapes, making people look fat. Plus, I thought new TVs cost over $1000. Wrong on all counts. I also purchased from DISH a surge protector and warranty so I don't have to mess with what Kathy went through.

I let my Boston terrier out earlier this evening and when I let her back in there were two eggs, unbroken, laying in front of the door ! I picked them up and, told her good girl. About thirty minutes later she made another trip outside and layed another, unbroken egg, in front of the door. I bragged on her and gave her a treat. Another trip out and another egg, this time broken but still in the shell, in front of the door! I can't wait to see what she does tomorrow. During the summer, when the hens were running free, they slacked off laying. Or so I thought. I wonder how many she broke bringing them to the house. If any. I found two outside the coop a few weeks ago, unbroken, and just thought my youngest gdaughter had dropped them. Sweet E is the most gentle dog. If she finds anything, unusual like a baby raccoon or turtle, alive outside she comes for me and takes me where it is. She sits and barks. Once. Boston's are the sweetest dogs I've ever had. I have to remove the squeakers from their toy's or they won't play with them. They don't like the sound of anything in distress.
