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'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

Loren, I just discovered why your link didn't work for me. I used the period (.) in the address and got:

"Not Found

The requested URL / was not found on this server."

I took the (.) off and it works fine. ... except it gives the Trailers only, not the videos. It does have a nice Blog.

Randall, I don't have TV, but am able to watch Cosmos on my computer. Last night's program didn't get onto the computer site until just a few minutes ago. I have been checking last night and all day today. It finally was posted and can found here, at least for me: 

Cosmos

This one has the first six episodes. I watched only the first five minutes and will watch the rest now. 

Here is the address in case you need it:

A really funny video, GC. Tak så mykka

By the way, yesterday's Cosmos was great.  There were several facts he mentioned that I had forgotten or never heard before.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2014 at 7:39pm

I don't have cable or satellite TV, just a roof antenna, and I get Cosmos Sundays on FOX.

Grinning Cat, that is WONDERFUL!  Thanks for sharing it! :)

And now for something completely different:

The Ministry of Silly Walks is alive and well at a pedestrian crossing in Norway:

Just finished a really good book: "Dominion" by C.J.Sansom.
The year is 1952. In 1940 the British P.M., Lord Halifax surrendered to Germany after the fall of France. A Nazi-friendly government is now in power. Churchill, Atlee, Bevan etc. have gone underground to lead the resistance. In a Midland's mental hospital is a scientist who knows a dangerous secret and who has to be got out and sent to America. All of this complicated by the Great Smog of '52. A thriller that will do things to your heart rate and blood pressure.

An imagined history, but the main theme of nationalism has become murduerously relevant again the last couple of decades

My daughter asked the guy she's been seeing about his politics, and if he's religious.  He's a Liberal, and NO, he's not religious.  More and more to like about him! :)
