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

Yes, being a loner has it's perks that's for sure, not to mention a LOT LESS stressful in not dealing with these lots!

I bought a new walker from amazon, delivered today......IT'S PURPLE!

Aaaaarrrgggh! So that jerk friend of my sister's who friended me on FB made a comment about how it's sad when someone resorts to name- calling when they don't agree with someone else's "opinion." What he was referring to was me calling a politician who is going to be speaking at an anti- gay rally, and yes, I referred to him as a SOB. Then I told my sister's friend that being a bigot was not just an opinion, it's WRONG to be a bigot. This guy is dumb. I unfriended him. What pisses me off is that my sister then defended him (and she is strongly for equal rights for all) because she said he was raised that way, etc. I told her that was no excuse. Then she said she didn't want to hear about it. Whatever! This is why I need to be a hermit. Thanks for listening to my rant, my open-minded, sensible, extremely intelligent, and caring friends! So glad to have AN to come to and know there are people in the world like all of you! Otherwise I might lose my mind!

Ruth, I love the British beer bottle blowers! Nice sound and rhythm 

Patricia, how dreadful! I can't even imagine having to deal with steel wool textured hair ... I have a hard enough time with what feels like horse hairs. The family teases me because it is growing out at different lengths and this hedgehog continues to be my best avatar representation.

Cute video, Ruth. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 6, 2013 at 6:53pm

Wow, I never heard of chemo turning hair into steel wool texture, Patricia.

Here's a well tuned beer bottle performance to cheer up everyone.

Comment by booklover on November 6, 2013 at 5:33pm

Glad you liked my posts Joan!  Also happy your hair is growing in!

Comment by Patricia on November 6, 2013 at 2:27pm

It's about time equal rights started to become EQUAL RIGHTS for everyone.....except criminals.....they tossed theirs.

My hair grew in very tightly curled & matted, which caused terrible headaches I still had to cut it back & wear wigs for 3 years after chemo before it finally softened up enough to do something with. I couldn't even get a wire dog brush through it & the texture was like steel wool.

Great news on Illinois! Marriage equality will only begin in June, since advancing the date would have required 70 votes in the state House (it passed with 61).

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 6, 2013 at 12:02pm

Joan, you mention your hair is coming back as it was originally:  straight, not curly.  Is it common for hair to become curly after radiation?  I'm lucky that I've never had a close friend/relative go through this experience, so I'm a little naive on the details.  

I'm glad to hear that you've managed so well through all of this.
