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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Something I picked up on FB.

I want to take just a moment to celebrate rants! They are the food that feeds ideas, that gives energy to concepts, that provides thought to events happening as we write and speak. 

I want to give a hat-tip to Ruth for her very insightful, precise, concrete experiences of reality. Even more importantly, she offers material upon which to chew; ideas that are out of the mainstream of thought, she offers options to complex concepts! 

Ruth, A hat-tip to excellence, not perfection, but stupendous, considerate, impressive, extraordinary, talented, amazing things you do: 

By the way, what is a peep? 

Oh! according to Wiktions, "Shortened from people, with simplified spelling, + -s to emphasize the plurality of the word".

Felaine, my daughter doesn't want to be a mother either.  She says if she changes her mind, she will only adopt.  She doesn't want to bring a child into this world, or pass on her anxiety/depression.  She is VERY happy to just have cats!!! :)

I am celebrating the fact that I am NOT a mother, never wanted to be one once I found out I couldn't have kittens, and made sure that I did not become an "accidental mother." 

Now, I want to go to Texas and geld Rick Perry.

Sounds like a plan, Mindy! For all mothers, daughters of mothers, and mothers to be, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Carl, math is my weakest subject also! Unfortunately I passed this on to my kids! They are so smart, but just getting through a college-level math course is a trying experience. I have always wanted to be good at math, but no matter how hard I studied, got tutored, etc., it just doesn't click for me.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! I am sitting here waiting for the cable guy to fix our internet. This means I didn't have to go out for breakfast with my mother- in- law. Lol, yay! I am taking my wonderful mom out for lunch though, and I am not doing a single bit of housework or cooking today. I fully intend on doling out all the jobs to my kids and husband! I'm going to be online and read all day while having drinks and snacks brought to me.:)

Cobgratulations with your talented granddaughter, k.h.

Congrats k.h.ky!

Ruth, I haven't commented on Pat Condell - The curse of progressive feminism. I note your comment which seems reactionary, particularly, as you say, you watched less than half the video. Anyway, you missed the good bit at the end when he is bound and flagellated by a black mistress wearing a appendage.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on May 11, 2014 at 12:16am

BTW, I should add that I'm doubly impressed.  Math has always been my weakest subject.
