We are a group of skeptics, atheists, agnostics and the nonreligious cognizant of the pitfalls of groupthink or any in-group/out-group labels and behaviors. As skeptics we attempt to prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly apply the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion. Join us for casual discussions and events with other like-minded people. All memberships will be reviewed at six month intervals. If you have not attended any events in that period you membership may be terminated. However, you can rejoin at any point thereafter if you do find future attendance will be possible.
Are you interested in meeting other couples who choose to eat whole food plant-based meals? We enjoy our nutritious foods - we feel good and would like to share restaurants, monthly potlucks and get-togethers with other positive, like-minded couples. We lean towards meals with minimal SOS - which is salt, oil and sugar. We are located in Southwest Florida on the Gulf Coast.
Our club is for small dogs who love to meet, mingle and have fun. We were formed in 2007 and our gatherings usually have a theme or activity. They are a great way to get to know other small dog owners and have a good time with our little canines. Be prepared to have some fun.
Do you love small dogs? Do you love books? Do you love coffee, tea and lively discussion? Then join us for some fun! Each month we will get together at Leashes End senior pet sanctuary to discuss interesting books about dogs.

You are subject to removal from this group without a recognizable photo. - RSVP REQUIRED. You must RSVP for events in which you will participate. No walk-ups or "crashers".

But, check the event listing or with the event host if there is a question. If you bring a guest (+1), you are responsible for your guest. Please stay with your guest over the hike. - NO SHOWS. If you are unable to attend an event for which you have an "RSVP", change it to "No - Not Attending", as soon as possible. Otherwise, you will be marked "NO SHOW".
