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.

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Nice music and videos. Those horses look like tortoises compared with the hare.

Fun speed painting. Reminds me of something I saw regularly in my childhood. Here's the only sample I can find:

Nice music, y'all!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 16, 2014 at 6:26pm

Patricia, I was thinking about you when I saw this video.  It's kind of fun. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 16, 2014 at 3:44pm

Yes, amazing speed painting!

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 16, 2014 at 3:07pm

That speed painter is tricky.

Good morning everyone! Another beautiful day with nice working temperatures. The beds slowly become readied for winter. Today, I am concentrating on the west garden. The garden has past its summer peak and an autumn one quickly approaches. I spend every minute I can out there.

Ian, I looked up "Time Team" and it looks like exactly the kind of subject I enjoy watching. I have save as many as I could find and will watch them after I come in from the garden. 

So, it is off to the garden and I won't be back in until the cold chases me in. Remember when it was the heat that drove me in? 

I hope each one of you has a very special day, full of beautiful sights, delightful sounds, aromatic smells, delicious tastes in the company of very special family and friends and that ever refreshing time of solitude. 

Take good care of yourselves, Daniel and Carl. I am thinking of each of you, knowing you are turning your enforced idleness into a time of healing. That is work, too.

That's an interesting response to putting tape on cats, but I wouldn't do it.  I agree with Chris.  It seems a little mean to me.

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 16, 2014 at 12:19am

I hope they didn't put anything stickier than Post-It tape on those cats!

Comment by Plinius on September 15, 2014 at 11:44pm

That's no way to treat cats! Not funny to me and not strange either; the cats behave naturally. The commercial talks about sensitive cats, but doesn't show how they like it when they remove the tape!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 15, 2014 at 7:31pm

I'm not quite sure what to make of this commercial.  It's both funny and really strange.
