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.

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

k.h.....write or e-mail the Freedom From Religion Foundation, giving the town, state, and dates when this has happened.  It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!  No two ways about it.

FFRF will sic their legal department on the school board, for starters, and if the board balks, they will start talking about lawsuits.  (And ask them to keep your granddaughter's name confidential...they WILL, and so will most courts, if it gets that far.)  They have had great success in keeping god swill out of the public schools, WHEN someone complains.

There's a new principle at my gdaughters elementary school. Every time there's an assembly he always says 'we're blessed'.. This irks me no end. I've thought about making an appointment with him to discuss this. Anyone have any ideas, suggestions, anything?

How about a group hug for/from ALL of us....to celebrate the Solstice?????  

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 20, 2014 at 9:19am

Chris, I love your idea of a group hug for Carl. 

As we approach the shortest day of the year, I offer a sight and sound of winter.

I recommend a group hug for Carl - according to scientias.nl hugs boost the defense against infections. And it works both ways!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 20, 2014 at 7:37am

Being a Beach Boys fan, I, too, am shocked that I've never heard the song before. I predate Carl, however, and grew up with The Hi-Lo's and The Four Freshmen--jazzier.

Great posters!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 20, 2014 at 1:31am

Joan, I would gladly accept a hug from you anytime and I would reciprocate in kind. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 20, 2014 at 1:25am

Carl/the Flying Atheist one, you are almost the age of my three children, but may I have a turn at giving you a hug? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 20, 2014 at 1:21am

Carl/the Flying Atheist one, thanks for the great songs by the Beach Boys

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 20, 2014 at 1:17am

Ian, love your research cartoon! It is a keeper. Especially for me, the old researcher.
