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've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

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

Ian, that is right. Censorship is wrong.

Comment by booklover on February 17, 2014 at 7:45am

Wow, everybody has been putting great stuff up here!  Some of those images were horribly disturbing Napoleon, but so important that they were shown to the world.  I liked the woman sticking the flower into the soldier's bayonet.

Loren, that picture of the guy on the ledge makes me nervous! lol

Funny joke Patricia!

Good quote Ian.

Hope everyone has a good week.  I am going to have our taxes done this a.m., then this afternoon we go see the Orthopedic Specialist about the cyst in/on my son's knee.  Of course it makes me nervous. :(

Thanks for those 29 images, Napoleon!

Comment by Ian Mason on February 17, 2014 at 1:48am

Those 29 news images are stunning, Napoleon.

Here's something I found on FB

Joan, the boys expression says so much. To experience a sense for the first time must be hard to describe in words.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2014 at 5:28pm

Napoleon, the deaf boy, hearing for the first time, reveals a real sense of wonder. It is easy to take our senses for granted and this little boy got a real charge!

The Nothing Channel  Chill Out !

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2014 at 3:43pm

Loren, my stomach gave a flip when I saw that photo. I wonder when that particular stone is going to fall into the fiord? Not my kind of thrill seeking. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2014 at 3:41pm

Napolean, thanks for the cuddly kitties.
