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

Idaho Spud, I have 3 and I will ALWAYS have cats.  They just make me smile.  I should include my 10-year old black Lab, whom I love dearly, but I am definitely a cat-person.  I guess I should include my husband and 18- and 20-year old 'children' (when they are home!) also?! lol~ Melinda

Booklover, I don't have any cats, but I love the feel-good "Home is where my cats are" cartoon.

Way to go Mayor Menino!

Comment by booklover on July 26, 2012 at 8:00am

That is wonderful. A public-figure who ACTUALLY stands for what is right and lets the country know it!  Awesome.

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 26, 2012 at 7:14am

Some politicians are willing to not only say it, but put it in writing! Way to go Mayor Menino!

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 26, 2012 at 3:29am

Thanks, Ian. I'm a firm believer in the K.I.S.S. principal, but when I get upset, I kinda go synonymous (don't even know if that'a a word, but you get my drift) on their asses. Confuses the hell outta them, and helps me to really get something off my chest.

Nicely put, Tony. If you're going to let rip, use a broad vocabulary.
