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 Feb 19. 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

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

   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

Oh, I LOL'd at the awful comedian with the paper bag over his head, too.

I hated The gong Show...except for Gene Gene, and one other act. I can't remember his name, but he was the switchboard operator at KCET when I worked there.  Funny as *bleep!*  He did some kind of torch song in drag, and got gonged, but he didn't care; he wanted to be gonged. He knew he was supposed to be awful.

What I hated about the show were the performers who didn't know they were awful, and the expressions on their faces when somebody hit the gong were pitiful.

Chuck Barris had a sick sense of humor; he loved to humiliate people. He produced another "game" show that featured male executives with their (female) secretaries and their wives. The object was to see which woman knew the most about the man.  It bombed.

Great dance clips.  Sorry to offend, but I just had to share this dance icon.

To change the subject, you might enjoy duck vacuuming.

River Dance is thrilling. Would love to see it live.

Some think Fred Astaire is the best dancer, which could be true. He seems flawless. However, I enjoy James Cagney better than Astaire. Cagney has a unique style that makes me smile.

However, my favorite dancer is Vera-Ellen, probably because she is so attractive. Trying my best to forget the attractiveness factor, she still seems to be as good as, or almost as good as Fred Astaire. She danced with him in two movies, The Belle of New York and Three Little Words where she seemed to keep-up with him nicely.
She also danced with Danny Kaye in White Christmas. He’s not the best dancer, but still good, and I enjoy him because his characters always seems so nice. Someone I would love to hang-out with.
Leslie Caron is another favorite, mainly due to her incredible attractiveness (for my taste). Can’t rate her dancing as she is just too attractive for me to be objective. She danced with Astaire in Daddy Long Legs.

Crop circle kitty is cute Mindy.
