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.

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

Oh, je vous remercie! Je vais devoir marquer cette site.

I avoir un ami qui sait russe, il était un "espion" armée qui écoutait sur ​​leurs émissions de radio pendant la Guerre Froide.

J'aime jouer avec les langues, mais je ne suis couramment l'anglais. Honteux, n'est-ce pas?

Whoopie!  This is so much FUN!  Now, if there was only some way to translate Feline...they do have a large vocabulary of vocalizations...and body language, too.

Announcement!  My Little Baby Boy...aka Pumpkin...just turned 15 years old some time this week.  I don't know the exact date, but when I was working part time at the Cat Hotel, one of our regular clients brought in two feral female cats in January 1999. Each had a litter of kittens whose eyes were just starting to open; Pumpkin was the only orange one,and I wanted him.  BUT at that time I had 3 cats and two of them hated the third one.  But for the past 2 1/2 years (and for the rest of his lively life) he's mine!  All mine!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY BOY!

That's terrific that you all liked 30 Cat's who master the Art of Sleep-Fu. For Sk8eycat I recommend Google Translate which is superior to Babelfish and includes very good voices to learn pronunciation.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 6, 2014 at 11:35pm

Thanks for the link, Napoleon. I can still be amazed at the positions cats can get into.

Good one, Ruth. That put a smile on my face too.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 6, 2014 at 8:25pm

The sleep-fu cats are great, Napoleon. Thanks.

This gave me chuckle. Hope you like it too.

Lucy the Brat.....like my Kiri the Brat.....they'd make a good pair!!

I love kitty tummies!!!!

Comment by sk8eycat on January 6, 2014 at 7:38pm

Oh, Napoléon, Merci de signaler cette URL de Panda. Je veux caresser tous ces chats magnifiques.
PS: I don't remember most of the French language I learned in school...I cheat... use Babelfish to translate for me. But I love those kitties, anyway.  I wanted to pet their silky tummies....

Thank you!

Napoleon, those cats are ADORABLE!!! Thanks for posting them!
Comment by booklover on January 6, 2014 at 7:00pm
Patricia, we found out the culprit is my daughter's cat Lucy! It had never happened before we got her, and she was caught with paper towels again! I think she would try and blame Dora though! That's the cat that's jealous of her! Lol
