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

Puns. Yeah, I know. But I just couldn't "shade' the truth, had to call it as I saw it. (Please forgive me, for I know exactly what I do).

Comment by Grinning Cat on July 25, 2012 at 5:29pm

Tony, a good pun is its own reword!

Me too Idaho Spud!

Comment by booklover on July 25, 2012 at 5:07pm

Very punny Tony! :)

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 25, 2012 at 5:07pm

Powerfully stated Tony, and I am impressed, staying within a metaphor: 'barking', 'branch' out, learn to 'leaf' their myths behind,  become 'rooted' in reason. 

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 25, 2012 at 4:27pm

Better than the manifestation in a burnt piece of toast? You decide.

 

Flowers and prayer cards are pinned to a tree with a scar that residents claim looks like Our Lady of Guadalupe, a Mexican representation of the Virgin Mary, in West New York, New Jersey July 14, 2012. Hundreds of onlookers have gathered daily around makeshift shrines at the base of the tree in the New Jersey town across the Hudson River.

I just don't see it. They're 'barking' up the wrong tree here. If they could just learn to 'branch' out, learn to 'leaf' their myths behind and become 'rooted' in reason, I think their lives would be infinitely better.

Joan, feel free to re-post anything I might say here at anytime. Permission to use my name also. I don't scare easy from these kind of people, if at all. It is very okay with me. Thank you for asking.

Grinning Cat. I understand they have given upwards of 5 million dollars to various anti-gay groups, including NOM. What dipshits, pardon me. Oh, LOVE the muppet chicken celebration. Thanks for helping me laugh, to lighten up somewhat. Made my day better! Have always loved the muppets, just glad I don't have to give them up. That would have been a real hardship!

Idaho, I don't have a Chick-Fil-A in my town either, but will not be visiting any when we travel to Dallas, as we usually do a couple times a month. If I happen to pass by one and see anyone standing outside picketing, though, I will just have to join them.

Steph, thank you as always. We will continue to point out his lies. The cold light of reason and truth will prevail.

 

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 25, 2012 at 12:13pm

Too bad I don't have Chick-fil-A in my town so I could boycott it.

Comment by Grinning Cat on July 25, 2012 at 12:01pm

Let's remember that Dan Cathy and Chick-Fil-A are facing criticism not just for one statement against marriage equality, but for a history, now out in the open, of donating millions to anti-LGBT organizations.

Also, Mr. Cathy's statements haven't merely supported a particular, exclusionary kind of marriage, they've framed LGBT people as a threat, "inviting God's judgment on our nation".

There's more at the discussion "Chick-fil-A president slams gay marriage".

On a lighter note: the Muppet chickens celebrate the end of their association (videos, less than 3 min.).

Tony, I posted photo and your comment on Facebook and attributed it to Tony. I didn't use your last name, unless it is OK with you. If so I will change my posting, or you can post on Facebook with your name. Hope that is OK.
