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.

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

Steph, cute picture!  I'd like duckling-friends! :)

Ruth, cool about the cat tree!

Carl, corn in the chilli sounds good to me!  I have never made chilli.  That is my husbands job.  I don't know how it started, but since he enjoys it, I told him it will always be his job.  Just a way for me to get out of a few nights of cooking. lol.

Just peeking in to see who's here.  Hello Steph.  I'm having a good week.  Hope you are as well.

Sk8eycat, how was your afternoon out at the symphony?  I hope you got some good laughs from Elayne Boosler.  

Ruth, thanks for telling us about your cats.  I always enjoy hearing all the stories here about everyone's cats.  Since I don't have any, I live vicariously through all your tales.

Melinda, homemade chilli..........Mmmmmmmm.  I always put corn in my chili but many people think that's odd.  What's the opinion here with this group?  (Despite what is said, I will continue to put corn in my chili.)  lol

That sounds wonderful Ruth. How is everyone?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 7, 2013 at 9:56pm

Thanks for the senior performance, Patricia. That was fun.

Sk8eycat, Dee Gordon’s expression is priceless.

Napoleon, I don’t get what’s special about the barking dogs.

I had trouble downloading the three tenors video, Tony.

Booklover, that LOL’s so cute, I had to pass it on.

At our house, Grinning Cat upgraded our cat tree with two new shelves, like steps connecting the levels, on Saturday. Mira immediately took ownership of the largest new shelf, and every day she spends hours on it. Her delight is so entertaining. Trissa can’t be lured to explore them, even with treats.

Booklover that is so cute!!

sounds like you had a very nice day

Comment by booklover on October 7, 2013 at 7:18pm

Hi Friends. Nothing much happening here.  My husband got the day off, so we went out for breakfast, and he made chilli for dinner.  We all got to sit at the table and eat together, so I loved that of course.  My daughter's cat is still mainly living in her room.  We let her mingle, then she runs back.  Our youngest cat, Dora, who is 4, is SO jealous that she's not the 'baby' anymore.  The older animals could care less that there is a new little cat here.  She seems to be starting to understand that our 10-year old Lab, Molly, is NOT going to hurt her.  Have a good week peeps!
