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

Yesterday, January 2.  Views of my street taken from the front of my building after the first wave of snow.  More snow was added later in the day.

Nahhhh.  They never showed up, OR maybe they got run off by the other spectators .

People who haven't bought grandstand tickets start claiming places along the parade route the night before.  Traditionally, they camp out and party all night, and I don't think they'd tolerate any grim puritans spoiling the fun for very long.

Local press people show up the night before, too...including TV crews.  If there had been any fundies there, they would have been anxious to get their faces on camera for their 15 seconds of fame.

Maybe the float ran over them!

Various knuckle-draggers predicted that there would be boycotts of the parade and public demonstrations against that float...neither happened. 

(I wonder where the Westboro Gang was Wednesday morning...ttee-hee!)

I slept through the parade, but I wish I'd seen this float and heard the applause!

Beautiful cats, Chris, and such interesting patterns. I wonder if there are DNA tests going on to track the evolution of feline families? 

Comment by Plinius on January 3, 2014 at 12:48am

Journey is a beauty! As far as I know, she has a tabby-pattern that has a strong relation to wildcats.
