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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Conga-rats, Ruth.  Many thanks for creating such a comfy place to hang out.

I'd like to offer you a cuppa tea, but I don't think there's any way to do it electronically. 

I'm trying a new one tonight; Darjeeling Wood Smoke, nice and delicate (doesn't knock your sox off like other "smoky" teas do), and you can get two infusions out of 1 cup worth of leaves. (I like loose teas when I'm not feeling lazy, so I have several kinds of infusers and DIY tea bags. It's turned into a hobby.)

Bill Gates didn't write it, Charles Sykes did.  It's just an internet urban legend.

The only thing I can't figure out is why all the "Ns" are backward! Didn't he learn THAT in school????? :-)

Sometimes, there is just no arguing with this guy.
