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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Grinning Cat, I like your interpretation!

Debra Stevenson, what drew you to Mormonism in the first place? Your description of some of their beliefs is quite revolting!

booklover, as usua, outstanding photos.

THE LIBRARY IS NOW SELLING FREE COFFEE FOR $1

I like a friend's explanation: "The coffee is free, the $1 is a tax to defray the cost of replacing books that have had coffee spilled on them.......... :) "

Comment by Megan S. M. on April 24, 2013 at 11:08am

Well one of the definitions of free is

12a : not literal or exact em>free translation>
b : not restricted by or conforming to conventional forms em>free skating>
So maybe they are selling coffee that isn't exactly coffee :p

booklover, you have the cutest cat pictures

Comment by Megan S. M. on April 24, 2013 at 11:00am

Actually there are plenty of mormons that drink coffee, they just lie about it to their leaders. After all, the LDS are the perfect examples of hypocrites lol

lol Ruth.  They need to look up the definition of free in the dictionary. Steph, that "he's making that face again" is great! lol

SELLING Free Coffee?!? Bloody hell!

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 24, 2013 at 7:47am

Thanks Steph.  Got a good laugh out of "making that face again".

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 24, 2013 at 7:44am

$1 for FREE coffee?  That's a bargain!  Most businesses make you pay far more than that to get something "FREE".
