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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

That Patricia is not me, that's the author Patricia McKay with the hat. The other woman is a clerk at a book store, but that's not where the signing was. The signing was in the grocery store.

Great hat, Patricia.

Well put, Loren.

I was shopping today & this author was in the grocery store signing copies of her book, so bought it as this is right up my husband’s alley for cariboo stories. Our area of BC is called the Cariboo.

Lol about Britney Spears, Ian. I also read something about her not knowing where Canada is located. My daughter has a beautiful smile, but a lot of the time it is masking her depression. I'm afraid it will just be a lifelong battle of getting her meds right, therapy, and working on it day- to - day. It's a brain- chemical thing, but society understands my son's type 1 diabetes, but not my daughter's depression issues. There is still a stigma.
Ruth, that is wonderful work you do on extremely important issues.
Well, I'm going to take a nap now!

Mindy, your young ones look fine and happy.

Just finished "The Second Coming" by John Niven. Would you believe that Jesus is in heaven jamming with Jimi? There'salso a great quote as a chapter heading. Britney Spears supporting capital punishment because that's how criminals lear their lesson for next time.

Carl, I work nights and in a shift pattern that means not working Mon. og Tues. so I could sleep all day after the Sabbath and be rested for my Wed, night shift so that was all right.

Hope nobody has burst during the U.S,'s big eating day.
