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

Joan, glad you got a good deal on a MacBook.  As for price, I always thought Macs were only slightly more expensive than Windows computers.  Is that what you meant?

My iMac is 7 years old and doesn't do some things anymore, so I'm trying to save $400......No, $600 for a Mac mini.  Comes without a monitor, keyboard, or mouse, but I already have those.  I thought I remember the Mac mini was $400 a few months ago,  but just now I looked-it-up and ouch!

My mini-van is old, but keeping it running is way less expensive than buying a new vehicle, especially because I can repair a lot of it's problems myself.  I hate banged knuckles and grease under my fingernails, but it beats the horrible prices others charge to repair vehicles.

Spud, I know, Macs are really expensive; over time they save money and frustration. Some years ago, my computer tutor found me a reconditioned MacBook for $400.00 when the going price was $1,000.

My son-in-law converted their businesses to Mac several years ago and just this week, the Pend Oreille Co Fire District #8 bought their first Mac and Laura transferred all the files over to the District's computer.

Hope you can afford a new car before 40 years. Kind of hard to drive a Mac around town.

Good one Joan.  I agree with what both Gates and Ford said.

That's why I switched from Windows to Apple 7 years ago, and why I haven't been able to afford a new car for 40 years.
