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

Had a terrible wind storm yesterday. Some trees really swayed low to the ground, others continued to stand. A local small community near hear lost 40+ house trailers and injuries. There were several fires, but no calls to this Fire District 8. 

Laura reported many people coming into the ER last evening and night. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 24, 2014 at 12:35pm

Doctors started inducing Laurie's baby last night because the baby is 9 pounds and healthy, Laurie's blood pressure is growing into risk levels and so they chose induction. Today was the expected birth day. 

at 10:3 AM Laurie is having strong contractions, gave up the plan for a natural childbirth, requested pain relief. Laura and Zac spent the night with her. 

I am so goosebumpy!

She is! And we could! But she can't adopt another cat for she is now also allergic to longhairs. BuT I guess she'll think of another project.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 23, 2014 at 3:42pm

Ursula sounds like such a good-hearted person!  We could use more humans like her.  Is she thinking about adopting another cat?

Comment by Plinius on July 23, 2014 at 3:14pm

Ai - my friend just phoned me that she had her last surviving cat put to sleep, so she has to get used to the life without cats. She always adopted the ugliest longhairs from the local shelter - she was allergic to shorthairs. They were really ugly, her longhairs with their crumpled faces, nose problems, eye problems and whatever a cat can get, but they became happy and healthy with Ursula. But you can also become allegic to longhairs...

We had to have our AC on for the last 2 days Randy.  This a.m. is nice and cool though, and I love having the windows open!

Comment by Randall Smith on July 23, 2014 at 7:18am

Picked up a much needed half inch of rain overnight. Except for yesterday, it's been a very cool summer. No 90's yet, and we average 18 a year. I haven't had to use my AC one time!

We do have city buses Chris, but they are few and far between. I would have to walk a long way to even get to a bus stop, and even then it would be hard to get to places I need to be. And I live in the city, not right downtown, but in the city. I wish we had better public transportation like you do!
Comment by Plinius on July 22, 2014 at 11:23pm

Is there no public transport for short distances, Mindy? I do know about Greyhound buses for long distance. Here we have a network of buses, trams and metro, so I can get almost everywhere and it's never very far to the next stop.
