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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Mindy, I wasn't able to watch COSMOS tonight so I'll view it on my laptop tomorrow.  In the meantime, don't tell me how it ends.  I want to be surprised just in case it turns out that God "did it."

Carl, I sent that video to my sister a few days ago. I love it!
Ian, great job running a half marathon!!! That's so cool you ran it with your daughter and her guy!
I'm sad that COSMOS is over, but it was great!

Glad you  had a good day, Mindy. I've no idea what Philppine food is like.

Sweet cat and kitten, Carl. I wonder if cats are a  more effective selling ploy than sex?

Good to hear that you're enjoying your garden and wildlife, Joan.

Sunday was a pleasant day for me: a local ½ marathon followed by eating with my daughter and her bloke. Enjoyed both very much even though my middle-aged legs are complaining now. Happy holiday weekend to all.

A cute commercial:

I like the pun Ian! Lol
Carl, I wish you could have a moo moo! How cute!
Joan, yes, the food was Philippine style! So delicious! We ate outside, and we noticed a cat staring at us from the screened window next door. As soon as I saw it, I waved and talked to it, and it immediately left, lol. I guess he or she only wanted to spy and not be noticed! Ha ha

Good Sunday mornin' to ye all! Just came in from 3 hours in the garden. A crow has found our peanut feeder emptied it right out. So, now I have crows, sparrows and chickadees. Oh! I wish a goldfinch would visit 

I signed the petition and hope it has a negative effect on the homophobes. It is past time for grown-ups to grow up.

Mindy, your trip to  Rolling Meadow sounds like great fun. Have a great meal always appeals to me. Did cook Philippine style food. 

A Philippine friend, Jose Valerico, taught me how to make Adobo. It was delicious. Red Chile Adobo Sauce.The way he taught me was to fry chicken parts and pork chops, pour the sauce over them, simmer about 20 minutes to blend flavors, then serve over rice. A very nice sweet and sour sauce .

Carl, do you now have a cat house mate?

Hello and Happy Sunday to everyone.  I like the changing cat and the artist horse, Mindy and Ian. 

There was a cat standing right outside my front window yesterday evening that was so adorable.  He/She was white with caramel brown spots.  Just like a tiny miniature cow.  I immediately thought if that was my cat, I'd call him/her "Moo Moo."
