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.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Randall, I had to look it up. I assume you know all about it but here is what I found. 

Ménière's Disease

Is your father able to live alone? 

I don't know what "Wet and Forget" is and Googled it. What odd instructions! The internet site only says, "just spray and walk away!" Why would anyone have to read a whole lot of instructions if it is that easy and harmless? Keep us up-to-date on the outcome.

Plinus, Oh how special! This gift from your students is a real testimony to your gentle and kind and wise nature. I can't wait to see it, even as I know your time is full now. Whenever you are ready I will be watching.

What a lovely gesture.

I love that Randall.

Thanks, Ruth and Mindy, you make me blush! But I'll post that picture.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 17, 2014 at 11:56am

Plinus, please share a photo of your new roof garden plant support when you've put it in place with plants. I agree, "You're so nice!"

Comment by booklover on June 17, 2014 at 11:51am
Chris, that just shows how much people like you! That was so nice of them, and they did it because you are so nice! And you are NOT stupid in any way, shape, or form! I never see what's coming either! <3

I never see what's coming, I'm so stupid. Some weeks ago one of the people in my course phoned me and asked about my experience with a roof garden, so I told him about it, sent a picture and forgot all about it.

Today the group surprised me with a ladder-like structure to put flowerpots on, some pots with herbs and a big bunch of flowers. And very big grins! Lovely!

Check out this tag on a "Wet and Forget" container I recently bought.Shoot--it came out sideways. Anyway it says: You're wasting your time! This product is only effective if you read the instructions thoroughly. But I know you probably won't. So go ahead, do the job twice. You probably have a PHD in time wasting. Who am I to give you advice.

I think this is hilarious! Well, I DID follow directions. Now to wait to see if the product eliminates the moss and lichen from my porch roof as advertized.
