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

I signed it Felaine!

PLEASE spread this around ASAP:

You know I rarely send petitions to friends, but this one is important to ME.  The people that own the land that Culver Ice Arena is on want to get rid of it, and build condos, or something equally stupid.  After 52 years, there is so much permafrost under the rink that if/when they cut off the refrigeration, they'll end up with a useless swamp.
Please read the petition, and if you are so inclined, sign it Monday before 6PM Pacific Time..
Thanks!

Thanks Chris!!!! :)
Felaine, that happens to me quite often! I'm trying to yell in my sleep, but I can't. I'm not quite asleep, and not quite awake! I hate that feeling.

I don't know if the kitten in that video was having a nightmare, or if dogs are dreaming when their paws twitch while they are asleep.

  In humans, we are paralyzed during REM sleep.  At least some of us are; I have had what are called "waking dreams" when I'm half awake, try to move or yell, and can't do anything for a minute or two till I'm fully awake.

(Had one episode where I heard something outside my bedroom window...probably an animal...my dreaming mind thought "prowlers!," and I tried to yell, just made incoherent noises...couldn't move, scared my sister half to death.  She called 911, but by the time the police and EMTs got here I was fully awake, and terribly embarrassed.)

Vibes for (((((Molly))))) and for (((((Mindy))))) who has to take the hard decisions.

I didn't even know cats could get Alzheimer's.

It's good you found a more competent vet, Chris. I hate it when you go to a vet, or a human doctor, pay, and get no help.

Comment by booklover on January 12, 2014 at 11:00am

I know Chris, it's hard to know. If she starts getting a lot worse, or we can tell she's really unhappy, we would do the kind thing and have her put to sleep. :(  We have had to put 2 cats to sleep also due to sudden and obvious medical issues.  One was only 14, but the other was 19.  It was sad, but I knew we had given them great lives with lots of love.

Comment by Plinius on January 12, 2014 at 10:55am

I had two cats with Alzheimer's. In the end they both became unhappy, their voices sounded like calls for help. They were put to sleep before their lives became too difficult - that is, I hope that we understood them well enough and did the right thing. But you're never sure.

Awww he put his head in your armpit for comfort.  Poor sick guy!  And the vet didn't do anything for him!  Your neighbor is lucky to have you for a cat-sitter!

My poor old Labrador, Molly, is REALLY showing signs of doggie Alzheimer's.  She doesn't know what to do with herself, and she literally QUAKES when the 2 youngest cats fight.  She is happy to see us though, and not in pain, so I guess she will just live like this!  She enjoys having her belly rubbed, and getting treats.  It's hard on us though to CONSTANTLY let her outside, or keep saying NO, and she either doesn't understand or is being super stubborn!

You must know that a healthy Bengal will demolish everything in sight when you do something he doesn't like. But when you go to the vet with a Bengal putting his head in your armpit for comfort, then he's really ill. So for his sake and for my neighbour's.... she loves her cats more than anything.
