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.

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

Joan, I have a Mac laptop that I don't know how to use...my brain just freezes up when I turn it on.  I've been using My Crow Soft desktops for 13 years, and I truly would like to get all this wired-up equipment off my desk, and just have three wires connected to the laptop instead of 23.  Do you have any suggestions for learning a new language?  Mac icons and terms make me feel like I'm trying to translate Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Did it work?

Comment by sk8eycat on January 25, 2014 at 2:47am

Ooops!  Yahoo mail strikes again.  I'll try the advice from Grinning Cat (and thanks for the instructions!)

The dreaded "X" Sk8ey.

So sly I can't open it, Sk8eycat.

An e-Friend just sent me this (look carefully, it's sly.  Heh!):

Sounds good Patricia.

Will do dinner Canadian style Idaho, if your tour brings you across the border.

This seems to be the year for replacements. I had to replace mine as well this year. I recommend Apple products. My son, daughter, son-in-law and I have all switched to Macs because they are so dependable. They each are in the computer business, Craig works with a large company that provides services to the military and banks, Laura and Larry each have their own computer businesses. The old ones go to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Refurbished ones can be purchased for a lower price and that is how I got started. I had mine for 5 years before it gave out. Laura cautioned me to be sure to get one that can still take updates.
