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

This one seems a bit creepy, like the middle one shouldn't be able to change rotation like that. from Cheezburger.comContinue

That's funny, Napoleon.  The understated British aggression.

Cosmos was great last night!  I couldn't help wondering if our fundie neighbors were watching it.  No way.  They went to the creationist museum a few years back, where they show kids riding on little dinosaurs.

Have a good week friends!

Looks like the whole Pacific Plate is squirming around

DO NOT WANT

How did you get those quake marker dots and plate boundaries on Google Earth?  I tried and my screen froze.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 10, 2014 at 2:08am

Whole Earth plate tectonics. 

Red dots are today's quakes. 

yellow dotes are this past week's quakes. 

Comment by Plinius on March 10, 2014 at 2:06am

I hope you're all right Sk8eycat!

And yes Carl, we were glued to the screen when the old Cosmos was broadcast, and we saw it again on DVD. I'll miss Carl Sagan when I see the new series..

Here is a closeup of the Eureka area:


Comment by sk8eycat on March 10, 2014 at 1:44am

There  were a couple of small quakes near Eureka some hours  before the big one hit offshore.  Seismologists said for years the there were no such things as "pre-quakes."  WRONG!

What scares me is that the southern end of the San Andreas has been "locked" for much too long...it makes a "dog-leg" about 50 miles north of us. I DO NOT WANT to be here when that lets go...as it will some day.

WHAT?!? 6.9 on teh Richter Scale? DO NOT WANT!
