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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Hope you get over the flu soon Pat. Hope everyone is doing good here.

Sorry to hear that, Pat.  Hopefully it won't last too long.  And take Mindy's advice......she's a good mom, so you should listen to her.

Well Melinda, you got the shot, and I got the flu.

So today someone ruined my funny post, and Ivtotally lowered myself to speaking to this person like a juvenile. I don't know what came over me, but I was furious! It had been fun, and then someone ruined it, and I reacted badly.
How was everyone else's day? Lol. Oh! And I finally got a flu shot! :)

HA Carl!  Bad pun or not, it was funny!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 2:42pm

Ian, I guess we can say that you'll be less shifty this year.

Augh....I know that's a really bad pun.  :)

Comment by booklover on January 14, 2014 at 2:33pm

lol about the dog pic and caption Ian!  And 3 extra shifts off per year is okay! :)

That's a funny dog meme, Ian.  Very cute!
