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 didn't notice that nobody thanked god.  Thanks Carl.

A very good and swift outcome for that stolen infant.  I'm glad to read in the story and to see in the videos that nobody was thanking any higher power for the positive outcome.  The actions of people  and some luck made that happy outcome possible.  It's refreshing to see the mother acknowledge the real reasons she got her baby back. 

"We had a lot of luck, but thanks to you ! I would like to thank the thousands of police officers, investigators across Quebec who have demonstrated great compassion and went to work immediately to find my baby. They have done an effective job alert and launched very quickly. Yesterday was a victory for us, but also for you. your work has been exeptional and we 're lucky to have such an effective system to help us in this situation .... THANK YOU! Thank you reporters have transmitted the news. I would also like to thank the staff and management of the St. Mary Hospital for your support .

"Thank you to these people, thank you to the security guards who acted quickly and found a picture with the help of the police. Photo saved our daughter ! In less than an hour, the picture was everywhere .... You were thousands of people shared the photo of the woman on the social networks and relentlessly . Know that this is what has saved our little Victoria. Each click , each share has made ​​the difference. Four wonderful people , we had the chance to meet , have identified the woman through Facebook. This is the only reason why Victoria is in my arms right now. Thank you all Quebecers who have bothered to do more .... check the area , parking , red cars .... We felt a great supports from the population. This victory is yours to you all !"

I read that Patricia!  FB was good for something! lol.  But seriously how scary that someone could walk right into a hospital and right out with someone's newborn!

Thanks Ian.

If it's silver it will have some kind of hallmark.

http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver__Menu.html

There are, of course, British and European marks as well or just plain "Sterling" or "925".

Silver plate isn't marked like that but as EPNS or EPBM if it's marked at all.

Hope that helps.

Does anyone know how to tell if something is silver or silver plated without taking it to the shop? I seem to remember that a magnet isn't supposed to stick to silver but will to silver plate. Am I wrong again?
It's a nice old fruit bowl that dates from 1929. Apparently it's a presentation bowl because it's engraved with the dates April 10th 1907-April 10th 1932. Thanks all.

Cute pun Ian, lol.

Have a relaxing Sunday everyone. :)

A pun to add a little fun to your day:

Hmm, That should have been a link to the mosaic museum. I think it leads to all the state museums in Istanbul so keep on searching. I did go round the Topkapi palace. Yes, a lot is beautiful but I also went round the harem which still has the atmosphere of the prison it was, a kind of human battery-chicken shed.
