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.

Saddened too by the loss of Niel Armstrong. The "space race" was a big part of my childhood in the 60s and the leading figures were my boyhood heroes. The world feels a little older and bleaker this evening.

When in doubt, ask Wiki.

Schulz often touched on religious themes in his work, including the classic television cartoon, A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965), which features the character Linus van Pelt quoting the King James Version of the Bible Luke 2:8–14 to explain "what Christmas is all about." In personal interviews Schulz mentioned that Linus represented his spiritual side.

Schulz, reared in the Lutheran faith, had been active in the Church of God as a young adult and then later taught Sunday school at a United Methodist Church. In the 1960s, Robert L. Short interpreted certain themes and conversations in Peanuts as being consistent with parts of Christian theology, and used them as illustrations during his lectures about thegospel, as he explained in his bestselling paperback book, The Gospel According to Peanuts, the first of several books he wrote on religion and Peanuts, and other popular cultureitems.

From the late 1980s, however, Schulz described himself in interviews as a "secular humanist":[44]

I do not go to church anymore... I guess you might say I've come around to secular humanism, an obligation I believe all humans have to others and the world we live in.[45]

I had the impression that Shulz was a mild Xtian. Linus Van Pelt often quotes scripture. Perhaps I'm wrong.

Idaho Spud, I think Snoopy was modeled after an actual dog Schulz had when he was a kid...I don't know if Schulz was raised in a religious family, but as an adult he was definitely a non-believer.

PS: There may be dogs on the Moon, but Neil Armstrong is gone forever, and I can't stop crying.

BRB...maybe

Hemp Bricks Are Harder Than Concrete For Homes And Buildings! 

Here is a possibility for building material. Are there any down-sides to hemp, other than being illegal to grow?

Patricia that is too cute! I am enjoying your cute kitty pic!

Thanks for a sample of your teapots, Ian. As a teacup collector, this stimulates fantasies of drinking tea every morning from a different unique pot. I had Blue Willow dinnerware once, now everything's broken but the big platter. The whimsical boat pot would be perfect for a sick day.
