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 myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

That praying girl makes me look into my own past, Joan. Disgusting what they do to four year olds!

And no, I can't wear high heels, but I wore sturdy boots, garanteed to make an impression.

Monday morning here: have a good week!

Every once in a while I get a craving for something greasy and salty.  FRESH-fried chicharones fill the bill nicely.  We used to buy them from street vendors who waited outside the Arena Mexico at night after the show.

There were also tamale vendors, with fresh-steamed tamales and their cries were distinctive; "Ta-mallllEEEEEES!"  We were warned not to eat them, but on a Saturday night, after doing 3 shows, they were irresistible.  As far as I know, nobody got the "touristas" from them.  (Anyone who ate a sno-cone sold inside the Arena was another matter....and those were supposed to be made from frozen purified water,)

Patricia: Fresh-fried CHICHARONES!  YUM!  (In small doses...)

Is the Smithsonian taxpayer-supported gov't property?  If it is, the USAF is out of line.  Again.

USAF band & choir 
"Let Earth receive her KING?"  Oh, really?  There's another yideo of the group playing the "Greensleeves" melody, but the choir is singing, "What Child is This?"  (Same tune)"What future human sacrifice is this," is more like it.
Sk8ey cat is haired up and hissing.

Chris:  I'm laughing that you stepped on that "pushy" woman's feet; were you wearing high heels?  (LOL!)  I would have done the same, but I don't wear heels anymore...I just look at photos of them and imagine bones going *crunch!*

Mindy and Patricia: Isn't it absurd that the buybull's imaginary boss made it possible to pass hereditary conditions on to our offspring, and then punishes us for not begging him.her/it to "cure" them? My dad's alcoholism and diabetes were two of the MANY reasons I decided not to have children at all.

I am reading my Robert Ingersoll collection again, especially the parts where he wrote/talked about Jeebus' absurd "miracles."  Imagine a "holy" man curing another man's blindness with spit.  How hygienic!

I really want to ask a minister about JC casting devils into a herd of swine (that then went berserk and drowned themselves), since the OT forbids eating or touching any pig products, where did that Middle Eastern "herd" come from?  Why was someone raising them if he couldn't sell them to anyone?

HOORAY for ham, bacon, and stuffed pork chops!

How to Shit Around the World: The Art of Staying Clean and Healthy ...

Ian, I wish I had this guide when I was traveling. It was in Hungary, I think, that we had to buy toilet paper and each piece was 4" x 4" and felt like the paper we used for learning how to write in 1st grade. We also had to tip the restroom assistant for standing in the door and selling us toilet paper.

Ian, your gentle comment of using hands in working instead of in prayer says what needs to be said and understood. 

If I remember correctly, she lived in Odder, near you. With your daughter in Copenhagen, will you travel by ferry to see her, or take the Great Belt?

I enjoyed a beautiful ferry ride from Hamburg to Copenhagen and on eastward.

Mindy, we need to find you some good posters that tell about non-believers and their children. We could knock your neighbor's socks off. 

I just found a treasure trove that you may enjoy. I am going to send one of these a day until I run out of posters.
