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

   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

Happy Memorial Day to all of you in the US.

Have you started drinking chamomile tea yet, Joan? I like creative bridges and tunnels too.

Loren, I appreciate that grumpycat can get on people’s nerves.

Sk8eycat, Tardar Sauce’s brother looks even grumpier to me, with that one tooth showing. I don’t like the narrow columns, either. You might want so send a comment to Brother Richard about it. While I  see the issue of casting off antiquated religious and politically motivated approaches toward important current issues, a whole movie of interviews isn’t something for which I’d pay.

Thanks for the I kissed a cat pic, Steph. That beagle looks so happy.

Wow, Ian. Celery tastes like dirty water to you. Too bad. Fortunately there are other foods with apigenin.

RICH SOURCES OF APIGENIN

Although it is found in many fruits, vegetables and herbs, the amount of it varies. The richest natural sources are:

  • Parsley
  • Celery
  • Other spices such as rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil and coriander
  • Chamomile
  • Cloves
  • Lemon Balm
  • Artichokes and Spinach
  • Peppermint
  • Red wine
  • Licorice


This is for you, Grinning Cat

Chris, your vacation sounds very special. I hope you have some little stories to share with us. I miss you when you are not her, welcome home!

There are several photos of the Netherlands that caught our attention and perhaps you are familiar with the sights. The design and engineering appeal to me. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 27, 2013 at 10:45am

Ian, good for you, you listen to your own body. Glad to know you have given celery a chance and know the answer, based on your body's messages.

Welcome home, Chris. Glad you had a good holiday. I'd like to hear more as you've been places I want to visit.

Sorry to disappoint you Joan but I've tried celery in many forms and in more than one country. It's like liver, kidney and most types of cheese: not for me. My taste buds and digestion say "no" and I listen.

Comment by sk8eycat on May 27, 2013 at 9:44am

I DISLIKE how narrow these columns are anymore!

Comment by sk8eycat on May 27, 2013 at 9:42am
