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 used to do them all the time, but have gotten away from them over the last while. No idea why because I always enjoyed them. I'll check that site....thanks Randall.

You want to convert meters to feet?  Leave it to Google.

Meters to inches?  Yeah, the G entity can do that, too.

PS: My sister bought 2 (small 5") "no sugar added" pies for today...one apple,and one cherry.  Vons/Safeway is actually having a "Pi Day" sale!  I'm always amazed when Marketing people actually do something clever instead of the same-old same-old.

I LOVE crossword puzzles!  When I worked a few years in an advertising office in downtown Los Angeles, there was always a mad rush when our copy of the Sunday NY Times arrived.  We Xeroxed the crossword, and then everybody spent their lunch hour doing the puzzle.  I have found several sites that offer free printable puzzles, but I've never found the Sunday NY Times one. Anyroad, it requires larger paper than my printer can use (IF you want to be able to  read the clues.)  But it's always been the best, and hardest, puzzle published in the US.

British-style Cryptic Crosswords can fry your brain, but they're fun...even if you only get a few words right.

But shrinking starts early! I know, because I wanted to be tall and I kept track of my height.

I was 1.62 m. when I was 18, but only five years later I was back below 1.60 m. Now at 60 I'm 1.57 m.

And now how to convert that to inches... 61 inches, but I can't find the feet.

I know Carl, I'm going to be 47 next month and it seems to soon to start shrinking.  My husband has shrunk a couple of inches due to the physicality (sp?) of his job.  It has been REALLY rough on his body, except probably very good for his heart.

My son, who is just over 5' 11", and who is a jokester, tells people it is his "goal" in life to be 6 feet tall. ;)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 14, 2014 at 9:40am
Mindy, I think I've shrunk in height also. For years and years, ever since 8th grade, my height was measured at exactly 6 feet. Several years ago I had a work-related physical and they measured me at 5'10". I was really surprised. Then my own doctor confirmed that measurement as well. It seems very strange, since I'm only approaching my 50th birthday this year.

Love hearing cat stories!  Your cats are beautiful Patricia.  My Mom used to have a Tortoise Shell cat named Florence (after Florence Nightengale, because she stayed ON my sister for an entire week when my sister was sick.)

Sorry Randall, I wish I could do crosswords, but I'm not good at them.

Happy Pi Day Grinning. LOL Pie Rat.  Cute!

My sister and her daughter are going to a concert in Chicago tonight, then driving to my mom's to sleep instead of back to Green Bay.  My mom is taking us all out for brunch tomorrow.  I'm happy to see my sister and niece! :)  My niece is 14 and just reached 5'9".  I used to be the tallest woman in the family.  My sister and my daughter are both 5'4 1/2".  The nurse just told me I shrunk to 5' 71/4".  How did I get on this subject? lol.

Have a Happy Friday everyone. :)

I'm sorry, Randall, but changing the subject away from cats is not acceptable. But we'll make an exception for you this one time since you offered some good advice about crossword puzzles.
