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 seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

It goes like this, Ruth. I write a bit then the other writes a bit, then it's my turn to continue. We take turns.

Patricia, statistics can be fun. I read once that London would be under 3 feet of horse dung by 1990 if the trends of 1890 continued.

Dinosaurs loosing their heads by not being able to effectively dodge the moon is funny Patricia.

Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny, although measurable distance from the earth every year. If you do the math, you can calculate that 85 million years ago the moon was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 35 feet from the earth's surface. This would explain the death of the dinosaurs...the tallest ones, anyway.

My "sustainable" farmer son-in-law just received 240 baby chicks (lost three). They are so adorable! He and his 5 yr old son spend a lot of time with them attempting to bond. Seems plausible (see dog and chicks below).

From Freethought Today:

Studies show exempting churches and religious organizations from taxes in America costs taxpayers between $71 billion and $83.5 billion a year.

Can we say "rip-off," boys & girls?

My cats wrote emayl leddurrz lawg beeforr I ever heard of lol-speak.

It started years ago when my cat wouldn't quit bugging me while I was typing emails to a friend in England. It became a ritual for our cats to emayl eetch uhthurr evree day an kumplayn uhbbowt thuh hyoominz an how dum thay arr.

I didn't make that LOL...my sister found it on Cheezburger.  I rarely go there anymore; it's become too complicated and FlakeBook-y.  Since it's impossible to tell the sex of baby ducks....till they get their adult plumage, I dunno why the Akita is bitching about sandwiches.  I think the dog is a female, anyway.  I've seen those pix before with different captions.
