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 am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Felaine, that's really cool. Great skating and choreography. What a little gem from the past! How wonderful it must for you to see that. Thanks so much for sharing.

That's an impressive performance, Felaine even in its blurry state.

Thanks all for "making my day"! I'm still chuckling.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 5, 2014 at 11:50pm

Nice one, Patricia but I have met some people who make it seem effortless.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 5, 2014 at 6:55pm

Good quote, Patricia.

My 7th Grade English teacher had a permanent sign above the blackboard: "Alright" is NOT all right!  I've never forgotten that, but I see "alright" everywhere now.

About the Cialis and Viagra comm'ls...they make me angry because most insurance plans have no problem with paying doctors prescribe them, but still won't cover contraceptives for women.

I wonder if the religious bigots at Hobby Lobby and other "xian" companies who are fighting against their employees having insured access to birth control have objections to their insurance companies paying for those medications....

Spay and neuter your kids!

You people are cracking me up today! ;)
I still remember how my 4th grade teacher told us to remember the difference between desert and dessert. You might want 2 desserts, yum, but you wouldn't want 2 deserts! Also, if someone leaves the military without permission, to desert is pronounced like sweets, but spelled like the sandy version. No wonder they say English is a hard language to learn!
Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 5, 2014 at 10:59am

Oh, goodness me!!  LOL   Yes, the man was wandering through the desert, not the dessert.  Thanks for pointing that out. 

Comment by Plinius on June 5, 2014 at 10:47am

Now that we talk about spelling you give us another wonderful image, FA! The man with the car door wandering through after dinner sweets - plodding in the pudding? Climbing up a chunk of pineapple? I should photoshop images like that!
