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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

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

Thanks, Spud. This will be my 3rd. I had a Nissen Fundoplication about7 years ago to stop the reflux, and fix my hiatal hernia. They think it may have slipped. I just hope they don't find anything worse than that. Getting older sucks (body- wise I mean.)

Just re- read your post, Carl, and saw where it says your meds give you terrible side effects. Hopefully your doctors can tweak them until the effects aren't so bad. :(
Comment by booklover on August 19, 2014 at 3:26pm
Carl, I am so sorry about your diagnosis, and not being able to work! I'm glad you are able to do things to keep it under control! {{{{hug}}}
Yes, getting new school supplies is so exciting for kids!
No, my daughter's math class starts Saturday a.m. (At the local Community College down there) and her University classes start next Monday.
My husband said thank you for the birthday wishes, and he is sorry to hear about your kidney diagnosis!
Well, we will see what I'm diagnosed with tomorrow. Not really, since my follow-up appt. isn't for 3 weeks.
Take really good care of yourself!!!!!

Carl, sorry for your kidney disease!

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 19, 2014 at 3:22pm

Mindy, I've had lots of acid reflux most of my life, so when I went in for an upper-endoscopy, I thought they would find something, maybe even cancer, but they found nothing wrong.  Hope the same for you.

Happy birthday to your husband, Mindy.  Has your daughter's school started classes yet?  I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow.  

I was in Walgreen's the other day and the aisle with the school supplies was filled with excited kids picking our their notebooks, etc.  They were very cute.  When you're young, those things are so important.

On a personal note, I saw a kidney specialist yesterday and was diagnosed with stage three chronic kidney disease.  So.......I'm on some medications with terrible side effects that I'm dealing with.  My condition is under control for now and I will have to monitor myself closely for blood pressure and salt intake.  I'm actually unable to work at this time. 

Randy, I hope you enjoy the time with your grandson.  It was always fun to go to my grandmother's house and play with toys that were my father's when he was young.

How nice, Joan and Randy, that you are getting to enjoy your grandchildren! :)

Today is my husband's 48th birthday.  It's also Bill Clinton's birthday! lol.  We drove down to see our daughter and her cat (I miss her cat!!)  We only stayed half an hour, but it was enough to get my "fix." :)

Tomorrow I go to Madison for an upper-endoscopy.  Yay. lol.  I am anxious though.  I just like to know that it's just reflux, etc. and not something worse.  I am a worrier!

Oops, "He wanted..."

Comment by Randall Smith on August 19, 2014 at 7:26am

Joan, you have quite a family! I was surprised to get a phone call this morning from my near 5 yr old grandson. I wanted to spend overnight with me. I said "you bet". While rummaging through the attic the other day, I came across some toys belonging to my son. They'll be something new for my grandson (and me!) to play with.

I can't understand why nobody orders a good independent investigation into the death of Michael Brown. Of course the police won't like that, but they're there to protect and serve, not for anything else.
