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

I wonder if the gorillas had been around people much.  They seemed really tame and at ease.  The guy with the camera must have been frozen in time which was probably the best thing to do when they were all around him.

Thanks for the tip Carl! ;)

Yes, Melinda, it's too bad we can't meet at 30,000 feet.  That would have been fun.  Remember:  Always put your own mask on first, then help children or others near you.  :)

It is snowing again!

Thanks Carl!  It would have been fun to meet you on the plane though! :)  I love the cartoon.  Very cute.~ Melinda

Ian, I am sorry you didn't have Carol Burnett in Denmark! Her slapstick humor just outrageously funny. Everything she did was gross exaggeration of real life; kind of like Charlie Chaplin.

I love the jigging cat, Steph. Oh to have such energy!

We had three days of snow last week, but up to 50s this week and not below freezing. Hoe your temps modify too, Melinda. Your puppy feeding bowl looks sweet. 

That handsome squirrel in snow compels me to want to let him in ... big mistake ... my neighbor had a squirrel in her home and it was a disaster, perhaps caused by the dog and cat trying to catch it. You sent a great photo Carl. 

Your cat with fish cocktail and without have great expressions. 

Patricia, I didn't realize Carol Burnett's show was 11 years! Her humor is priceless and timeless.

The best comedy show ever as far as I'm concerned. She had her show on tv for 11 years!

Comment by Ian Mason on March 5, 2013 at 2:04pm

Just got round to watching the videos. I don't know who Carol Burnett is but it looks like she and the others had a lot of fun making the programmes.
