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 wish your husband well, Patricia. Nice to have family available upon arrival.

My husband is on the 8+ hour Greyhound bus trip to Kelowna for his cardiologist visit. I hope he's ok as his lungs tend to fill if he doesn't get enough walking around time on the short stops.

The cardiologist came here every year to see his heart patients but so many didn't bother showing up for their appointments that I guess he thought it was a waste of a plane trip to get here for them.

Our daughter is in West Kelowna so he won't be completely alone when he gets there.

If anyone wants to join me for dinner, I'll cook!

A collection of "English as she is well spocken" (sp?) signs had one, "We serve tea in a bag like mother."

That's my kind of liberal.
Comment by Loren Miller on September 8, 2014 at 11:34am

Glad to help, Joan!  Please go to the JIBO website and have a look for yourself.  They apparently aren't out YET, but I have to believe they have the winter holidays in their sights.

I'm intrigued as well, but don't really have the money to spend right at this moment.

Loren, that photo shows a use of "liberal" that's new to me.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 8, 2014 at 10:16am

Jibo actually exists? It acts like intelligence lives within a machine. I can see all kinds of uses that would facilitate my #1concern, family violence. If episodes could be recorded, perhaps both the abuser and abused would see the idiocy of dominator and victim; perhaps others would believe how bad a situation is; perhaps a professional could unwind the triggers and demonstrate ways to make healthy changes. 

Now, as to fun! Oh boy! I could get all the photos I want and from the events I want to record. l could show you that flock of goldfinch without startling them away by my movement. 

Where did you find this Lore? Wherever, I want to subscribe.

Loren, there's a humanoid robot built by Honda, called ASIMO...for Asimov?  Cute, but I'd like one that can be pre-programmmed to clean litter boxes, dust, vacuum, test and correct the pool water, and do all the other household jobs that I hate.

This is my kind of thinking, don't mess around with nice words, it just encourages them to keep trying. I'm sharing 

And I was able to open both photos.
