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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius on Saturday. 24 Replies

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

Thanks, Grinning!

I'm both annoyed at and mystified by drivers who loudly share their music with the entire neighborhood. If it's disturbingly loud to people driving or walking in the same block, it's got to be deafening to the driver (and anyone else in the car)! How can they hear anything going on around them?

Mindy, I hope for the best for Dale!

Comment by booklover on September 29, 2014 at 8:44am

Chris, I agree about the music.  It makes me really mad when someone in the neighborhood has music coming out of their garage while they're cleaning it, etc.  I don't like all music, and I like to read outside.  Also in stores or restaurants where they have music playing, and it's especially loud. I hate sad songs.  It actually makes me want to leave the store. And I'm talking grocery store!  Why would they play that?  Wouldn't more upbeat music make people want to shop more?

Dale is going to the vet today.  He was drinking, but not eating.  Still very alert, but too skinny.  I can hear his stomach noises.  Poor guy!  I'll let you know after tomorrow when they do the ultrasound/x-rays.

Have fun Randall!

Strange how people force other people to "enjoy" their music and noise - I wish they kept the lot to themselves with earphones and soundproof walls.

How's Dale, Mindy?

Comment by Randall Smith on September 29, 2014 at 7:37am

Chris, I'm glad the weekend is over also. I get tired of listening to loud motorcycles roar down the highway (half mile away). Cyclists were out in full force, and the wind blew noise my way, disrupting my peace and quiet.

Loren, we get gorgeous sunsets around here, too. Dust from harvesting this time of year enhances the colors.

I'm spending the day with my five year old grandson, visiting people and places, eating out, and highlighted with us riding a golf cart while I play 9 holes. (I usually walk 18.) Hope he enjoys it all. Next year, I'll get him started on golf.

Beautiful picture, Loren. I'm so glad the weekend is over. There was a local festival - it means there was loud music from Friday till Sunday into the nights, drunken singing mobs,etc. We did a lot of odd jobs for our two wards, and today I can start on my own work. But it's quiet now! :-D

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 28, 2014 at 11:07am

Loren, we've had some beautiful Indian Summer sunsets here lately as well.

My wife and I went to her high school reunion last night, and in the process of that event, I managed to catch this:

Comment by booklover on September 26, 2014 at 1:49pm
Yes, she did a thourough exam and took lots of blood. I'm waiting for a call back.
Comment by sk8eycat on September 26, 2014 at 12:05pm

Mindy, call the vet NOW!  (If you haven't already.)  Did she check his mouth, teeth, and throat when you took him in for the exam earlier this week? 

This is sounding seriouser and seriouser.....
