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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius yesterday. 24 Replies

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

Thanks Grinning Cat.  My son is SLOWLY getting better, but my daughter has been diagnosed as bi-polar. Her doctor and therapist are working together, and are in agreement.  Her depression is still bad.  She starts her new job tomorrow.  She doesn't want to, but she says she'll go.  It just kills me. :(

On another note, got all of my shopping done today.  I sent my fundie neighbors a Happy Winter Solstice card!!!!  I'm betting we don't get the annual plate of xmas cookies! lol.  It was worth it!  They are probably having the line between our properties blessed or something so our heathen ways don't get over there. LOL.

Mindy, I hope your son recovers quickly!

And Felaine, hang in there... if the US were a civilized nation, health care wouldn't be held hostage to a predatory layer of administrators and insurance shareholders. But I'm preaching to the preacher, so to speak.

Thanks, Joan, for the pointer to a "vision" of St. Nicholas based on actual knowledge and evidence (imagine that!) rather than "our heroes must be white".

What's it about?

Small city, one theater, which we never go to because my husband's eyesight won't take in the whole screen, but unlikely we'd get all movies anyway.

I saw Wicked in 2006.  I agree, Loren, it was a lot of fun and very enjoyable.  I have to laugh at one reviewers comment at the time that stated the majority of the audience was teen girls and gay men.  Yup, I was there with a guy I was dating at the time and I can confirm that statement.

Thinking of The Wizard of Oz, my wife and I just went to see Wicked at the State Theater in downtown Cleveland.  Simple review: if you have so much as the remotest chance, SEE IT!!!

The comments are as funny as the "article."

This ought to twist some KKK Krischun knickers.
