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.

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

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

Just got home from visiting my daughter in TN. We had a great five days together. I went to her flying lesson on Monday and the instructor was nice enough to let me go up with them. She is getting very good but the little dips reminded me that I wasn't in a 747 and needless to say I got a little queasy. But I brought home some bread from a little German bakery in Clarksville and was pleasantly surprised when I got home to discover that my neighbor had brought over some raspberry jam from her recent vacation! Hope everyone has a great week!

Reminds me of the Paps of Anu in Ireland. Ancient monuments honoring feminine energy. The rock monument you can see on the right represents the "pap" and there is one on each hill. These were cone in the time of Gaelic Ireland

A British artist changed a hill into a breast cancer awareness monument, it's beautiful!

Watch Jonah, a boy of  three or four, play drums like a pro.

Funny LOL, Mindy.

Patricia, I have glasses with dark purple frames.  You have to really look at them to see they're purple.  They are plastic frames.  The side of the frames that face my face are blue.  Sounds wild, but they're not!

I know....but I'd like to have some like that just to say I have them...hahahahaha.....Dame Edna anyone?????

Those are so much more sensible. I was being frivolous, Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on June 21, 2013 at 8:15pm

See....purple frames....

Chris, I'd never heard of this possibly constructive aspect of dementia. It sounds as if the environment is key.

Love the Lumbar-Ghini, Patricia! And your hat too. I agree with Joan on the whimsy. She has plenty too. Purple eyeglasses, I can't imagine.

Joan, I was enjoying the car song until "the engine blasts" knocked me off my chair (so to speak).
