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.

Goodwill to Few Men (Betty Bowers)

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

I could not get my Thanksgiving message through either. So, a belated greeting to all my Atheist Nexus friends, with special thanks for all your ideas, comments, reflections, and looking to positive, healthy, enriching, flourishing concepts that we can move toward and hopefully inspire others to learn.

I can help you with your iPhone Melinda - I have one too.

I'm a little late.......but Happy Thanksgiving everybody!  Hope you had a great day.  I spent the day working, but was then able to enjoy the evening with my parents, sister and brother-in-law for one of Mom's exquisite traditional Thanksgiving meals with 'all the trimmings.'  I'm thankful for family, friends and for this online community.  You folks really are the best, and I appreciate everyone's unique contributions.  Today I will be feasting on some great leftovers.  It really doesn't get any better than that!

Yesterday I had nothing but trouble trying to access AN. Couldn't even send a message. It seems to work again. I missed you guys.

Welcome back, Chris. Few people want to take responsibility for technology gone wrong.

I'll be glad when Movember is over. I feel like my top lip has been invaded by a very itchy catapillar.

Glad your computer is right again.  It's disappointing to hear that about Dell.

Ian thanks for the lovely roses.

Booklover that turkey coma cat is so funny. LOL

Glad you are back Chris. Nice to see you here.

I´m back - my pc problems are over! It took almost a month and I´m not at all happy about Dell, now I know how they are when your pc is out of warrantry. They want money first and refuse all responsibility for the help given, even kept my pc for no reason two weeks longer. I`m glad I phoned a pc maintenance company - they came within a day and fixed what Dell had done wrong within an hour!

Good to be back! And now there is all the reading up to do! Have a happy weekend!
