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.

Oh Steph! I love this cat, "Two fancy feasts ..." By the way, did I mention that a very handsome siamese cat started visiting several times a day make the rounds. Two families with cats that used to visit moved away this winter and I thought my birds would have some peace. However, this stately gentleman is a good mouser, I've seen him twice with mice, and I assume he will be clever with the birds. I will string some netting around the bird feeding area.

Thanks for posting your Doe pictures in the Wildlife group as well  Patricia. They are beautiful.

Oh Loren - thanks - I have actually seen that video. But I don't mind watching it over again. It is interesting.

Patricia I love the Pope cartoon and that Pisscopalian joke one too.

Very funny.

Patricia, how close do you live to the wild?

Comment by sk8eycat on March 14, 2013 at 3:46pm

Patricia, I love everything about that sheep-herding video, from watching the border collies work to the name of the group that put it all together...The BAAAA-STUDS.

Delightful!  Thanks for the reminder.

Extreme sheep herding:  Didn't believe it at first, but it looks like they accomplished it by taking a lot of time herding and filming, then increasing the video speed.
