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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Happy Anniversary Patricia!!!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 1, 2012 at 5:28pm

Patricia, avoiding the drunks and hookers is probably one of the reasons you're able to celebrate 46 years together.  Congratulations!!

Comment by Ian Mason on July 1, 2012 at 3:40pm

Agreed, James. Empty vessels make the most noise.

Indeed, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Patricia. Have a great day and spoil yourselves.

Happy Anniversary, Patricia!

Ian, Ian, don't get me started on another pet peeve.  The more loudly they proclaim their Christeranity the more likely they don't know what it means or suspect they might not really believe it at all.  Like little girls, beliefs are supposed to be seen, not heard, by which I mean actions speak louder than words.

Pretty picture Steph!  We saw good fireworks @ the trap-shooting (clay discs, not animals!) club that my husband belongs to.  We had a nice time and we were all together!  I love that my almost 18 year-old and my 20 year old like to be with us! :)  Have a wonderful 4th!

Happy 4th of July US members.

Have a great week to the non US members not celebrating 4th of July.

Anyone doing anything fun?

I'm getting irritated: "Tea Party, "Tebow".... sounds too much like my favorite beverage. 

Guess I'll have to go back to Coca Cola.  Does anybody else remember Imogene Coca?
