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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Here is the view from my kitchen window. See the window screen? lol. That's our dog, Molly. 

The Olympics start today.  I am nervous about it because of all the threats.  I just hope everything goes okay and everyone has a good time.  It's just such an important time I think, because the world gets together for something good.

Today will be boring for my daughter and me.  It snowed last night, so my son took my car to work.  He has a Mustang, and it doesn't do well in snow or on ice.   We are just cleaning the house today, reading, and getting online.

Running around like mad, still working on brother-in-law's problems, doing my own jobs and chores etc.etc. From today my days are three hours longer; I hired a cat-nanny who visits b-i-l's scaredy cat every day, so the cat can stay in her own house and I save the three hours a cat visit costs me. The nanny comes not too soon, I really need to get my own life back!

Where IS everybody?

Comment by sk8eycat on February 2, 2014 at 1:47pm

Oh!  Groundhog Day....I forgot.  Feels like winter has just begun where I am, Clear, cold, and windy ...57 deg. right now.  Not impressive compared to the ice storms than have been blowing through the rest of the country, but it's enough for me at the moment, and we need rain!

@Idaho - S'funny. Lyle did NOT say his name much.  When I first got him I thought about naming him after Percival Lowell, because he was a reddish orange color.  And when I had him neutered I figured he'd never develop a deep tomcat voice, so I changed it to Lyle.  BUT it turned out he could say "Lowell."  A LOT!  But I still liked the name Lyle for him, so it stuck.

I had read about a fictional cat named "Lyle" in a children's book about a pet boarding place called "Howla-Day Inn." (Or something like that.) That's also the title of the book.

Happy Punxsutawney Phil day y'all.

Fun fact:  During Prohibition, Punxsutawney Phil threatened that, if he was not allowed to drink, there would be 60 weeks of winter.

Felaine, did Lyle say his name much?

Comment by booklover on February 2, 2014 at 8:47am

Thanks for the hug Carl!

Joan, I don't know how you missed your post about the things you can do with an Art Degree!  Thank you!  I am going to show it to my daughter!

Felaine, great video!
