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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

These made me laugh.

Oh so many old songs had drug metaphorical lyrics, even going back to Louis Armstrong's days in the 20's ("Muggles" was marijuana). Then, of course, "Puff, the Magic Dragon", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", "Out in the Desert on a Horse with no Name", etc., etc. "Puff" is still being innocently sung by children everywhere. I love it!

Some lovely memories pulled up out of the dark past, the old recordings and performers, the little screen black and white box TV, and those wonderful ice cream trucks that still come by every summer.

Interesting info about the song, Along Came Mary.  I didn't know that. 

I was a huge fan of Chuck Mangione when in high school.  That's when he was most popular. 

I'm also a big fan of Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass.  My parents had quite of few of his albums, so I grew up listening to a lot of his music.  I still listen to him regularly.  It takes me back to the era of black & white TV, Dark Shadows, Milton Bradley board games and the Good Humor truck with the manually rung bells.

I love this song because it's EXACTLY what we felt like when we did a 3-show day...

I used to have that LP!  Loved the whole thing, and played it to death.
