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.

TFA, that's the one.

I want to let off a bit of steam :-(

Have recently been in England to visit my Mum, who's now in a care home. We, the family, were originally told that the home would be organising her dementia assesment. Now they say that isn't the case and that it's our responsibilty and trying to get a local doctor interested is an uphill struggle.

On top of that, I thought that I had signed all the paperwork for joint power of attorney with my brother. Now I've got a message saying that the solicitor "forgot" half of it and the rest will have to be done by registered, international post, which costs a lot of money.

Came back to Denmark to a repaired computer that has started playing up again within a few days.

Ever get the feeling that you're surounded by highly-educated, overpaid idiots?

Thanks for the space for a little rant.

Goooood morning, Everybody. 

Ian, I also have a T-shirt with "I have a personal relationship with reality" on it.  It's from 'The Thinking Atheist.'  Does anyone listen to his (Seth Andrews) podcast?  He's really does a great job.  

Melinda, I LOVE the 'he-did-it' pic.  I LOL'd.

Felaine, Patricia, and Joan, great stuff!  Is anyone watching the Superbowl? I just want to see if there are any clever commercials! Our daughter drives back to her University this afternoon. I'll feel better when she calls and says she's back at her apartment safe & sound!~ Melinda

Melinda, it sounds like you're having a great time. Enjoy the warmth :-)

Yes, great billboard. I've got the T-shirt.

"7 Hours ago"...cartoon (drawing doesn't matter) 

"When a woman says 'What?' it's not because she didn't hear you.  She's giving you a chance to change what you said."

****************

"1 hour ago" 4-panel cartoon of 2 elderly cheerleaders (again, the drawings really don't matter)

"What do we want?"
"Better memory!"
"When do we want it?"
"Want what?"

sk8eycat 1 hour ago. Your video or photo didn't come through. Anyone else having problems with this one?
