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.

Yes, Randall. I am a doer of crosswords. After 20+ years of working nights I've found that they're an ideal pastime as they can be laid aside and taken up so easily as work demands. I'm better at Danish crosswords than English these days too. I do attempt the cryptic in the Times Lit. Supp. every week and my record is 5 answers solved.

Skillet cornbread... delicious!  <licks whiskers>

And sometimes pies are square.

Cornbread CAN be round if it's made in a cast iron skillet!

Chris, the metric system makes so much more sense than the Imperial and U.S. systems with inches and feet and yards and miles (and fathoms and rods and furlongs and...), and ounces and pounds (of various flavors, too! as well as stones and such), and ....

Now to bring up fictional characters that are not part of any religion! J. K. Rowling wrote on pottermore.com that when Britain adopted the metric system, witches and wizards simply ignored it. They "are not averse to laborious calculations, which they can, after all, do magically, so they do not find it inconvenient to weigh in ounces, pounds and stones; measure in inches, feet and miles; or pay for goods in Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons." She refused to allow the publisher to convert measurements in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to metric, as was their standard practice; the old system is "much more picturesque, much quirkier, and therefore more appropriate to the kind of society I was describing."

Speaking of inconvenient units, how about velocity in furlongs per fortnight (1 fur/ftn is literally glacially slow: rougly 1 centimeter per minute).

I used to do them all the time, but have gotten away from them over the last while. No idea why because I always enjoyed them. I'll check that site....thanks Randall.
