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 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

This one seems a bit creepy, like the middle one shouldn't be able to change rotation like that. from Cheezburger.comContinue

Not spooky in real life....just endlessly fascinating.

Yeah, I kinda got that impression from watching "Northern Exposure."  Spooky.

What I really want to do is take the long train ride to Churchill, and see both the Lights AND the bears.  Totally beyond my budget, but I can still dream...

We have seen them & they are spectacular.....and noisy!

Gah!  The history is amazing, but I think the entire Middle East is the last place on Earth I'd want to be.  I want to see the Canadian Rockies, and Alaska...because I've been fascinated by the Northern Lights since I was a small child.  I wanna see them with my own naked eyeballs.

Wow!  Great photos and interesting history, Ian, always makes for a rewarding holiday.

That is Masada, king Herod's desert palace and fortress. Site of the mass suicide of the last Jews to hold out against the Romans during the uprising of 66-70 CE. 350 metres high but the "snake path" is a steep and winding (hence the name) 2 km. Hard bloody work and I hadn't allowed for the weather. Even though it was only the 2nd of April the sun was like a hammer. I brushed off flakes of skin for days afterwards. Worth it though.

That looked like a small hill until I enlarged it and spotted the tiny people.

Nice to hear from you, Randy and Carl. Thanks for the travel suggestions. So many places, so little time and money. History, culture and nature are my 3 big things and the Americas have them in abundance so I will have to go west soon before "time's winged chariot" takes my strength and stamina. I love walking but will have to accept that, in about 10 years time I won't be able to do what I can do now. This was my most recent climb (can't remember if I've posted this before)
