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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

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

Ha ha Carl, no one friend-requests me anymore because I have friended and unfriended everyone so much.  Not kidding!  It's like an OCD thing!  I'm friendly, someone pisses me off, I unfriend everyone or leave Facebook.  Seriously.  People on Facebook think I'm disturbed.  LOL.  I will stay strong this time though Carl and not friend anyone again! ha ha

Mindy, it sounds like Facebook will be a better experience for you as long as you stick to your stated goals.  I imagine there will be pressure on you to accept friendship requests from family and acquaintances, but now you know from experience not to open that can of worms again.  Good luck.  Be strong, my friend, and may the force of refusal be with you, my child.

Okay, so talking with Joan about Facebook, and my sister saying she missed me on Facebook, made me get back on Facebook. BUT... I am only friends with a very few people who I won't argue with, and I play online instant-win games a lot and was missing-out on a lot of them that require Facebook, and, like Joan said, she liked the info. that comes to her through it.  So I'm going to use it less as a social network, and more as a "get funny pictures and jokes, win prizes, and occasionally talk to a select few people page."  ;)  Also, I'm going to try and only check it once a day.

I'm using delta & theta brain wave cd music for sleep, & they are helping quite nicely for most nights.

Ruth, great handshakes.

This is a hoot!

Joan, I would never have known that the brain has so much to do when you listen and dance to music!  Seem like my brain is lit up a good portion of the day!

Ian......4 a.m.?!  What are you doing out so late?!  It's Tuesday......a school night! 

Sounds like you had a very fun evening.

What age do pensioner benefits begin in Denmark?  I'm 49 years old, but in 8 short months I'll be 50 and technically eligible to become a member of AARP (the American Association of Retired Persons) and to start receiving "senior citizen" discounts and special offers.  Of course, AARP is not our government run retirement/benefits program.  We have "Social Security" for that purpose.  And for me personally, due to economics, I'll probably have to wait until my early 70's to begin collecting those benefits.  

It's all very depressing.........

Glad you are home, safe and sound. Go ahead and take those pensioners tickets. What the heck, play it for all you can get.
