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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Felaine, I copied your earthquake map to my computer, scanned back until I got the entire Earth, and sent it back to you. It is quite remarkable to see all those swarms around the Pacific Rim.

That's funny, Napoleon.  The understated British aggression.

Looks like the whole Pacific Plate is squirming around

DO NOT WANT

How did you get those quake marker dots and plate boundaries on Google Earth?  I tried and my screen froze.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 10, 2014 at 2:08am

Whole Earth plate tectonics. 

Red dots are today's quakes. 

yellow dotes are this past week's quakes.

I hope you're all right Sk8eycat!

And yes Carl, we were glued to the screen when the old Cosmos was broadcast, and we saw it again on DVD. I'll miss Carl Sagan when I see the new series..

Here is a closeup of the Eureka area:


Comment by sk8eycat on March 10, 2014 at 1:44am

There  were a couple of small quakes near Eureka some hours  before the big one hit offshore.  Seismologists said for years the there were no such things as "pre-quakes."  WRONG!

What scares me is that the southern end of the San Andreas has been "locked" for much too long...it makes a "dog-leg" about 50 miles north of us. I DO NOT WANT to be here when that lets go...as it will some day.

WHAT?!? 6.9 on teh Richter Scale? DO NOT WANT!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 10, 2014 at 1:39am

If my Google Earth is correct, the quakes occurred off the northern coast of CA near Eureka. There was a whole swarm of them along that fault line.
