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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius on Saturday. 24 Replies

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

"You vile cynic, sk8ey! "

Oh! That's the sweetest thing anybody's said to me in a long time! Srsly. Thank you.

PS: I meant to say "sanctimonious" instead of "self-righteous," but my mind went blank.  I am getting old.  Ergh.

I also thought of using another word (rhymes with "trick") instead of "twit," but I didn't know if Cheezburger would censor it.  (Wonder if he is turning tricks when he's not talking to his imaginary friend. Wouldn't surprise me a bit.)

PS: ANY medical practice that allows or encourages their employees to proselytize on the job ought to have some kind of warning sign by the door, or prominently posted in the waiting room.

Sheesh!

First I hooted with laughter, then I felt the patient's utter humiliation.  What a mental picture!

I had to read all the comments posted after that, and even the krispies thought it was completely out of line, offensive/invasive.

A friend of mine, who is a believer but not pushy about it, told me that her ophthalmologist asked her to pray with him just before he performed cataract surgery on her.  She found it comforting, but if any medical professional said something like that to me, I'd have been up off the gurney, and out of there so fast...no matter how I was (un)clothed or drugged up.  If he/she needs supernatural help to do his/her job, I want somebody else.

My orthopaedic surgeon fell down laughing when I complained about the "scarecrow" on the wall of my hospital room a couple of years ago. The only hospital in this town anymore is Catholic, refuses to do any kind of abortions or counsel women re: contraception, and accepts federal money (Medicare).

Hypocrites.
