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.

attacking ideas (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 1 Reply

Attacking ideas is a considerable portion of what we as atheists do.  Why attack ideas?  Ideas earn attack when they don't serve people, not just us but those who adopt said ideas, mistakenly thinking that they have value when they don't.  Our…Continue

Me and my partner at the time on top of the Eiffel Tower in 1998.

I thought I'd share this photo.  I shot this in 1998 in Holland.  There was a beautiful cat perched on a wooden crate in such a picturesque setting. 

(Chis....this was in Zaandam, outside Amsterdam at the Zaanse Schans historic village.)

Hi Frank.  Welcome to the site.  I see you are retired military but are still on the bridge of a ship.  Are you now piloting ships in the private sector? 

Mindy, you have the right attitude and are also talking the correct path regarding you daughter.  She needs to focus on herself right now and I wish her the best.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 9, 2014 at 9:30am

Mindy, thinking of you, your mom.

Good news Randy.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 9, 2014 at 7:49am

Just to say it's been 8 days since I picked up my new dog, Dot. She seems to have adjusted to "country" life fine. At least she hasn't run away since I've unfenced her. I think she's become attached to me now. So far, so good.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 9, 2014 at 7:42am

Mindy, no, that does not sound cruel.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 9, 2014 at 7:41am

Patricia, I like your new avatar.  Do you have a large one I could save?

Comment by Frank Gibson on August 9, 2014 at 4:12am
Makes me miss my cat.

Sitting on the bridge of my ship with a watch partner that just oozes Jesus. I feel like he's eating my brain.
