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

Questions......

   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

Patricia, that's a classic song.  I have it programmed into one of my Pandora radio stations.  Playful, sophisticated and sexy.  Great cocktail music.

Or "Old age ain't for sissies."

But I AM a sissy, so how the *bleep!* did I get here?

Ruth, thanks for proving that learning is fun!!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 2, 2013 at 7:30pm

That's really funny, booklover. But birds can't "hold it". No rectum.

Patricia, thanks for the "start America in safe mode" link. Thanks for Lucy's tale. Like your mom, I like lap cats. But a young cat sounds great for a depressed daughter. She'll demand attention and give affection.

Mindy, I love the comic with the birds.  I'm glad The Great Cat Shuffle Of Rockford is making everyone happy.  Sounds like all those cats have wonderful homes and families. 

Wonder Woman traveled in an invisible plane?  Seriously?  I didn't know that.  I was a big fan of the TV show Shazam.  They traveled  around in a Winnebago.  LOL   

Patrica, yes, it sure would be nice to start over fresh with certain aspects of our government.  With the current shenanigans going on in Washington, I can't help but imagine how shocked our founding fathers would be if they could see today how bastardized their process of government has become.  I really hate and despise the Tea Party politicians.  When they were only candidates running for office in 2010, they implicitly stated that, if elected, they would "shut down the government."  Well.....they got elected and now have shut down the government.  As far as I'm concerned, they should be rounded up, thrown in jail as anarchists and put on trial for treason.  (End of rant.)

I hope everyone has a great October.  This is one of my favorite months.

Yes Patricia - I don't need to worry about any special permissions or anything to land - so having an invisible plane rocks!!

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2013 at 6:22pm

Yeah I know what you mean ... this year seems to have flown by. Where did it go??

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2013 at 4:37pm

Congrats on your new kitty sk8eycat. How wonderful for you.

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2013 at 4:36pm

Hi Carl - just saw that post - nope I was not in Chicago- but I have an invisible plane like Melinda said. It makes traveling much easier.
