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'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

Wow, Patricia--what a great photo, taken at just the right moment! Priceless!
No comment on computers or cats. As Ian says, I'm phlegmatic about either.

Joan, keep on writing, even if it is only for just the fun of it. I'm sorta addicted to A/N, too.
Sk8, nice to have you back. I, too, love your wit and insight.

>Bertpld, what IS it about Mac fans?

Earlier on Apple was ingenious about inserting itself into schools, and their software for music and artistic pursuits was superior. PC's were regarded more as "business machines" and MACs were for the more creative. And, while I have to say there are few entities on earth more fun to despise than Microsoft, I'd still rather run a Windows machine any day. I've worked with a lot of tech support people, and some have strong preferences while others are "ambidextrous" with both Apple and PC. I also hate the f-ing iPhone compared to the 'Droid. Apple is so anal about customers having to keep things the way they think they should be.

Congrats, Patricia!

Mindy make sure you use Feliway or whatever it's called with you. I mean the feromones in a spray that tells a cat he's home and all is right. It made a world of difference when we moved brother-in-law's scared cat.And I'm glad Dale is improving!

Comment by sk8eycat on October 12, 2014 at 11:00pm

Oh, been there, done THAT!  We had 2 cats once who were totally devoted to each other, and a 3rd kitty just showed up one day, announced that she owned me, and moved in.  The first 2 never wanted anything to do with her, and she wanted to be an Only Cat. She finally got her wish, but it took years.  Se was a very "talky" tortie, so I named her Noisy.

I still miss her...she was very cuddly.  With me, only.

Thanks,Felaine! We decided to rescue a kitten. Our youngest cat won't accept another adult cat. She HATES my daughters cat. A kitten would be less threatening to her I hope. She's a brat cat, and I love her to death! Lol

Bertpld, what IS it about Mac fans?  They are passionate about all Apple products.  Though "my" tech man isn't thrilled with them...he said about the only real advantage is that most malware us designed to attack Microsoft systems, and that is changing rapidly.

Comment by sk8eycat on October 12, 2014 at 9:49pm

Mindy, I forgot to say I'm happy to hear Dale is improving. It's so distressing when they can; tell anyone what's wrong...where it hurts, or if it hurts.

I highly recommend watching Jackson Galaxy, either on Animal Planet, or his short videos on YouTube.  He really understands "CatSpeak."
