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.

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

Whether you're a believer or a nonbeliever, there's something about the holiday season that just brings out the best in most people and I heard such a story this morning on the radio.

A Minnesota mother ordered an iPad for her son from Best Buy's website.  Best Buy messed up the order and sent her five iPads while only charging her for one.  Feeling honest, the mother contacted Best Buy to inform them of the error and return the four extra iPads.  Best Buy's executives were so touched by her honesty that they told her to keep the four extra iPads at no charge to her and give them to those less fortunate.

The only downside to this story is that now the son knows what he's getting from his mother for Christmas

"Join us on facebook" everywhere I look annoys me also Patricia.  I have a facebook page, but I give them the minimum personal information possible, and I'm still thinking of quitting.

"Fetch the cat" is surprising.

Steph, I love Grouch Potato Cat.  I reminds me of someone I know.  Hmmmmm, wonder who.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2012 at 9:43am

Joan, I respond to my religious family the same as you do to yours, with one exception.  I don't find any enjoyment in visiting them or having them visit me because we don't have much in common anymore and it's like walking on eggshells.  

That is, I can't just say anything I want.  I have to make sure it's not something they can connect with religion.  They probably do the same thing.  Also, I get too sad for them when they do mention going to church or I see the religious paintings on their walls.  It deepens my depression.

Tony, that's the most attractive mary I've ever seen:)

Hi, All! Sorry I haven't been to AN in days. Didn't look at email or news either. I've been putting all of my energy into a new short video. A huge learning curve for Movie Studio Platinum. Tutorials and help were inadequate, Had two false starts. *sigh* It should be done today. I missed you guys.

Had to post my LOlcat for the day.

Comment by Steph S. on December 7, 2012 at 7:19am

Joan so glad you aren't having any Facebook problems. That's good to hear. I don't mind you sharing posts on Facebook - so no worries Joan.

Napoleon thanks for the video. I like Joy Division.

Cute LOLcat Booklover. Batman cat is cute.

I am drinking coffee too.

I hope you have a good weekend everyone.

Good Morning Everyone!  I am sitting in front of our Winter Solstice Tree :) with a cup of coffee. :) 

Joan, I don't mind if you post anything I say, etc. on FB.  I have an FB page too, but just with my daughter, sister, a very few relatives and even fewer friends.  The ones I have left on there know I'm a Liberal and an Atheist, so whoever doesn't like it there is free to unfriend me.  I lost a friend a month or so ago from me posting Atheist things, but, good riddance then!  Sounds cold, but I can't care anymore.

Have a happy Friday all and a great weekend!~ Melinda

Steph, love the Grouch Potato!
