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.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

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

My, now retired Gastroenterologist in Madidon, WI started me taking Align. It was invented by a friend of his from the Mayo Clinic he said, and is very different than others on the market. He said his friend, the Dr., is from Ireland. That's what he told me anyway! :)

Joan....."Yule gift"......I love hearing that phrase.

Chris, one of my sons, Craig, and my daughter and her husband are in the computer business. They host through myior.com, laura does some web design, and Larry used to repair computers. 

They all very much dislike Microsoft and all its products. PCs failed regardless of which brand. They found they had the fewest calls to repair Apple products and they all now use MacBook Pro, as do I. My first MacBook cost me $400 and was a refurbished one. It lasted me five years and mechanical things began to malfunction, slow keys, slow downloads. So Laura and Larry gave me a new MacBook Pro for this past Yule gift. I think it was about $1,000.

Patricia has a Mac product and she may have some ideas for you to think about.

Any other Mac users out there?

Some months ago there was a discussion about probiotics and several of you named a brand. Can you remind me what it was?

I like that song very much Ian, thanks for posting! It's good to hear a normal sound from those years, instead of the patriotic bs.

And there the dying coffee-grinder starts again, five minutes after I started the pc. I bought it some four years ago in the hope that it would solve my pc problems - it turned out to be a monday-morning-thing. Four years of idiotic failures, unsolvable strange stagnations, a thousand blue screens and other malfunctions. Repair people could never find what's wrong, but put in a lot of new parts, all without succes. So I'll check the post and turn the thing off - I can't stand the noise.
