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

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

Carl, your photos of San Antonio bring back lovely memories. 

Comment by Plinius on September 15, 2014 at 2:13am

That's quite another view of Texas, Carl!

If anyone here has the chance to watch the documentary "The Fabulous Ice Age" that Sk8eycat and I have been discussing, you really should.  It's well made and was very enjoyable to watch.  It has lots of interesting tid-bits, stories and colorful film footage of a truly lost icon of Americana entertainment.

Felaine, I had forgotten about crickets! When we lived in Texas we used a snow shovel to get to the car during certain times of the year. When we stepped on a pile of crickets there was an eerie crunch, crunch, crunch. The crows loved the dead feast.

I don't wish to insult our good friends here from Texas, but the only redeeming quality I enjoy about Texas is sipping margarita's along the Riverwalk in San Antonio.  It's a beautiful setting with some great restaurants.

sk8eycatMatthew 6:5-15 makes sense to me.

Felaine, I enjoyed reading of the artificial ice. I had no idea it existed. It seems the problem of skates getting "dirty" and essentially been solved, but I wonder if the surface allows those incredible spins, jumps and maneuvers that ice water allows? The article did say the artificial ice performed 90% as well as ice. Is that good enough. The hot feet is interesting. Are the falls any different that falls on ice? Other than not being cold?

Today, I saw a woman walking a cat on a leash. Now, that is an idea and perhaps a way to meet nice young men.

Augggggh!  I have played Dallas, Amarillo, Lubbock, Austin, and Port Arthur TX...aside from the general attitude of the 2nd Amendment defenders, the place was too humid for me!  (We played a brand new arena in Dallas; as soon as the doors were opened, thousands of crickets invaded the place.  I think they liked the coolth.)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 14, 2014 at 10:19pm

Don't feel bad about starting out as a Republican, Felaine.  After I graduated from college I considered moving to Texas!  That notion to me today is laughably appalling.
