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.

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

I don't know Melinda. Could very well be. Also could be staged. It's from a "foodie" site, Slice of Life. They post photos that are staged. Some more examples;

and this;

another one;

all these are beautiful still life type photos, so they are staged. Just makes me wonder if the gourds/melons are also.

Whatever, it is beautiful. I like it!

So cool Tony!  Hydroponics? 

Comment by Tony Carroll on November 11, 2012 at 9:21am

A gourd/squash/melon arbor. My question, how did they do that? Get them to grow that way?

Comment by booklover on November 11, 2012 at 8:13am

Ian, that is so sick and horrible, but look at the KKK.  They are sick and horrible. Ugh.

Nice nighttime pic Steph.  I love the cuddly bunnies Joan.

Have a good Sunday everyone.  It's supposed to be high-winds here today.  My husband is lamenting about all the leaves blowing into our yard again. lol

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 11, 2012 at 2:13am

Ian, what a horrid thing to happen to that man! How cruel. Jeez from where do they, KKK, think in those terms? It is just beyond my understanding. Well, we know the Radical Right is way off base, but I had no idea that far off. 
Steph, a nice scene for going off to bed.
Patricia, those bears look so warm and cuddly, even as I know better. 

Well, it is bedtime and I have had a wonderful day. The snow is so pretty and today we had blue skies. Bitterly cold and very beautiful. 

Night, Night.

That's horrible, Ian. But it seems smashing someone's spine is not a handy way to make him change heart again.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 11, 2012 at 12:51am

A change of heart can be a dangerous thing. One Wizard of the KKK saw the error of his ways after many conversations with a Danish photographer and started preaching peace, love and understanding. He still does, but from a wheelchair. His former "brothers" smashed his spine.

Thanks for the posts everyone.

Comment by Steph S. on November 11, 2012 at 12:14am

That's real cute Patricia!

Sweet dreams my wonderful friends.

Thanks for the link Joan.

When I was high school, 60+ years ago, we had Knight's Diner, a refurbished railroad car, with the best hamburgers in town for $1.25. We couldn't afford to go often, but once in a while we splurged and enjoyed the nice fat, juicy, well endowed hamburger. 
Frank's Diner is in the same location and makes the very best fried cod in town!  Nice and greasy, loaded with batter that turns into a crisp coat when deep fried. Couple of times a year, maybe, and it is well worth the splurge. 

Years ago the infrequent visits were because of money, now it is because of high fat, carbohydrates, and salt. 

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Thanks for the link Joan!  Yes, the government should include everyone or get out of the game.  On a different note, I still do not understand why churches are not taxed.  I know separation of church and state, but then why do churches have so much to do with government functions such as elections?  Churches should either get out of government or pay taxes.
