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.

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia yesterday. 1 Reply

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

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 11. 30 Replies

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Eating Our Own: How You Can Save the Movement (David Smalley | The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Daniel W Aug 27. 11 Replies

While I've been peripherally aware of him for a while, David Smalley has not spent much time in the center of my focus when it came to scoping out atheist material on YouTube or elsewhere ... at least up until now.  His talk – Eating Our Own – came…Continue

In the spirit of the day:

My granddaughter has a chihuahua/pomeranian mix and he acts as though he is lord of all he surveys. They live in the forest in NE WA state and he isn't afraid of anything. One night he didn't come home and they found him the next morning at the door, all bloody and badly chewed up. A trip to the vet, some stitches, no broken bones, but returned with a big part of his body shaved, wearing one of those cones. Oh! how he hated that thing. He is fully recovered, still out looking for wildlife and seems to believe he conquered his enemy. Spaz and Dominic, the black Lab, play as though they were equals. Every once in a while, when Spaz gets too rough, Dominic will put his paw on Spaz and hold him down unable to move, until Spaz calms down. 

I would hate to see a pack of chihuahuas taking on a town.

There's danger everywhere. Be careful you don't trip.

I wondered why no one had posted anything here for several days, and sure enough, I was unsubscribed. 

I wish they would put the unsubscribe at the end of the email where it’s more difficult to hit by mistake, or better yet, leave it out of the email entirely.  So now I’m reading 11 pages.

Plinius, it sounds like you have nice students responding to a nice teacher.  

Mindy, I like your Huxley post about the deepest sin against the mind.

Patricial, nice No religious solicitation sign.

I love that dog video. So clever. 

Ian, looks like Aran Island sweaters! Even the ponies need warm sweaters there.
