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.

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

Chris, I have not seen a "blockquote" in the editor bar. In what gorums use them? 

See, I don't know what to imagine for "gorums".

Yes, Chris, there are two Chris's on this site and the avatar helps to "digstinguish" you. So do your conversations.

This has been a fun morning reading the mail with all the words that conjure up images. I especially like thinking of digging the avatar. 

Silly me, I should send you a piece I haven't corrected. Or, probably I have!

I'm curious why A/N doesn't have blockquote in the editor bar.  Other Ning forums have blockquote.  I attempted to copy and paste an editor bar from another Ning group  to show what I'm referring to but got a 4000 character limit error.

Chris, the closest I can come to "consuminderaar" is "consuming less". I looked up the conjugations and found no "aar".

I thought Ning didn't allow the same name to be used by to be used  by multiple members. I wasn't aware that there were two Chris's on this forum.  The Avatar is digstinguishing.

Carl, that's a perfect explanation !

It should be taught in churches.
Comment by Daniel W on December 25, 2016 at 10:50am

Carl, LOL.  He does have that kind of sleazy look in his eyes, doesn't he?

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the "you can call me Ray" and "skeptic on a stick" clips! Good diversions on this Christmas day (spent like any other day).
