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.

Finding Your Roots

Started by Randall Smith. Last reply by Patricia on Wednesday. 4 Replies

I've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

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

Thanks Randy and Joan.:) I love Mastiffs Randy! Give your Molly a hug from me. ~ Mindy
Comment by Joan Denoo on June 12, 2014 at 7:51am

Mindy, very sad news about Molly. I am so sorry. 

Patricia, I love the name, Purr-Dee! Sorry to learn of her decline.

On the other end of the life-cycle, Randall, your Molly grows into adulthood chasing butterflies. The circle of birth, development, decline and death occurs throughout time bringing joy and sorrow. My thoughts are with each of you today.

Mindy, reading about your Molly makes me want to love my Molly more. She's a one year old mastiff (mostly). Loves to chase butterflies. Sure am sorry about your dog and your sadness.

Comment by booklover on June 12, 2014 at 5:32am

Thanks Chris. :)  She's been spoiled rotten since the day she was born, so we know she's had the best life a dog could have.  We're doing our best to make every day count now, but I know one day very soon it won't be in her best interest to keep her here.  I don't want her to suffer.  She does have some pretty good times during the day.  It's a fine line to walk.  I don't want to be selfish or see her suffer. :*(

Poor Molly! I hope you can give her some good times while saying good-bye.

Yes, we knew she wasn't herself, but had no clue she had cancer until today.
I'm sorry about your Purr-Dee.
Comment by booklover on June 11, 2014 at 6:06pm
Thanks Patricia, it's hard, but I think I accepted it a few months ago. She hasn't been herself since before xmas.
Comment by booklover on June 11, 2014 at 4:46pm
The mobile vet just left, and our dog Molly has jaw cancer, and has lost 12 lbs.:(. She hasn't been herself for 6 months. Just going to keep her as comfortable as possible until she has more bad than good times. This is the first dog we have ever had, and it will be our last. She's a Black Lab, and Labs are such sweethearts. <3

Lol, we must have been posting at the same time! :)

Comment by booklover on June 11, 2014 at 11:14am

I could ask them Joan, but it's been 33 years since they lived in that house.  It's considered a bad area of town now.  Still I could drive by and see if they still have the flowers in their backyard.  I will think about that!

The thing that didn't come through was just a picture of the "trinity."  The Father shows Carl Sagan, The Son shows Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and The Spirit of Science shows Bill Nye!  A much better trinity! :)
