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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Sorry you woke up to snow, Melinda.  Enough to shovel?  Wow!  There's not a single flake on the ground here.  I'm also looking forward to more Spring-like weather.  I always feel more energized in the Spring.....and also in the Fall when the cooler days kick in.  I think Fall is my favorite time of year.  Not too hot and not too cold.....and beautiful changing colors.  For me personally, I enjoy the mysterious expectation in the air as the days become shorter and the nights longer and darker as I ready myself with comfort food and the warmth of cocooning indoors.  A few thousand years ago I think I would have made a GREAT Pagan.  I love celebrating the distinct seasons......and Vivaldi's Four Seasons is absolutely one of my favorite musical compositions.  It's very musically poetic.

Thanks Flying A, it got my toes tapping.  That's a unique musical number.

Good morning, Friends.  I'm just finishing up the final cup of my morning java.  Yumm.  In case your daily jolt of caffeine hasn't kicked in properly, here's a little something to help pep you up.

And usually at the end of the movie as well.

Same thing happens to me, Idaho.  I have my stereo speakers hooked up to my DVD player for movie watching.  When the lion roars, it sends me through the ceiling.  And of course the MGM lion roars twice as well.

Nice one, Loren.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 25, 2013 at 10:08am

MGM studio lion cat reminds me of something that MGM does that makes me hate them.  On all of my newer MGM DVDs, they make the lion roar much much much louder than the sound in the movie.  If I forget to turn the sound down before it roars, it shatters my nerves and makes me jump.  Hate the a-holes that do that.

Patricia, love your poster about being proud rather than ashamed.
