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've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Carl, The Big Bang Theory makes me laugh out loud quite often, something that rarely happens with other shows.  The first season was especially hilarious.  Knee-slappers one after another the whole 20 minutes.

I hope that helps you, Patricia!
Carl, we had a LOT of rain, but not much lightening, no wind, etc. Just pouring rain. I had to drive home down a different neighborhood road because all the cars on the road I usually take had water covering their tires. And it muggy too.

It's been raining a lot here as well.  That is, a lot for Pocatello.  One inch in the last 2 days, and another the 2 weeks before that.

Ordinarily, I like rain, but it's also been cool for the last 2 weeks, and my watermelon don't respond well to cool weather.  I've got some big ones, but if this keeps up, they won't ripen.

Thanks for the great offer, Patricia.  Sounds like a good deal to me.  Hope your PC connectivity issues clear up quickly. 

Spud, that's a funny Big Bang Theory clip.  I really like that show a lot. 

Mindy, the deluge of rain just finished up here in Chicago.  Wow!  What a rainstorm!  Very intense with lots of lightening.  The lights in my apartment flickered on and off several times.  I was worried about loosing my power, but all is well in the end.

Sure thing, Spud! Patricia, you sure have a lot to deal with! It's good to be able to have a sense of humor about it! Maybe we could get a super deal on a bunch of full-body transplants! I would also request my new body have no stretch-marks! Ha ha

I'm with sheldon.  It looks like I'm going to miss "when man will be able to transfer his consciousness into a machine and achieve immortality." by "that much."

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 2:07pm

Patricia, I want a new body transplant too!  I'd even be willing to pay full price.

I was going to ask if someone knew where you were, as I hadn't heard from you in a week.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 2:04pm

Mindy, if you find a place to buy a new digestive system, let me know! :)

Comment by booklover on August 23, 2014 at 1:35pm
Never thought of a body transplant, Patricia! Lol. I'd settle for a whole new digestive system! :)
