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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

It all helps Felaine, lets hope it continues for awhile.

Oh, wow!  It's raining!  Softly....barely.   More of a light drizzle.  But it seems to be soaking in, not running into the storm drains and out to sea.

I'm hoping this continues long enough to fill the reservoirs, and add a nice thick layer of snow to the mountains.  We desperately need it ALL!

Amazing skill with that ball, Patricia.

Greetings all. I made scones a few days ago, to take to friends as treats. (and keep some for me too) ^_^

First time I've ever made them, I followed a recipe from Food Network's Alton Brown. I learned what 'cut in butter' means. lol I never knew that. Make sure your butter is cold, and I used a mixer on low but probably would work even better with a pastry maker. But, I don't own one of those.

Here's the recipe:

Double the recipe if you want more than a dozen.

We have had many red/orange cats over the years.  I wanted to name the one we had before Pumpkin "Lowell" after Percival Lowell.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percival_Lowell

Then I realized he would have to be neutered, and I named him Lyle instead, so that he could say his own name.  Turned out he DID say "lowell" when there was an intact tomcat prowling outside.

You're right, they are called Plinius here. The Elder loved science, the Younger loved books, and the Youngest could purr.
