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 took a brief hiatus from here, and decided to come back. I've missed you guys, and hope you are all doing well. Hard to believe that fall is around the cornerThere's not much of a fall where I live. Having said that, I love Halloween. I don't…Continue

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

Patricia, that sounds like an ordeal... I hope you and your husband won't have to clean up the rest of the mess the neighbors' tree company dropped in your yard.

Ian, have a wonderful time!

Comment by Ian Mason on September 5, 2013 at 1:09pm

Oh dear, what a day, Patricia. A good idea to enjoy some Chinese food as a pleasant end to the horrors.

I will, within the hour, be taking myself away from all this and travelling to the Med - second time this year - to immerse myself in nature, history, sunshine and food. Will not be taking a PC with me so "see" you when I get back. Be good :-D

Apple cider donuts......that sounds awesome!  Yumm. 

Mindy, I went through a period in recent years when I was experiencing occasional panic attacks.  They subsided after I was put on medication for hypertension. 

Grinning Cat, I laughed at that kale/spider joke as well.  I can't stand spiders.  I try to conserve water, but after killing a spider I have to put it in the toilet and flush it away.  No matter how much I squish to smithereens I don't want to take any chances that it may reanimate.

That sucks Patricia!  Glad your husband is okay!  Today will be better hopefully!!

Grinning Cat, love the kale joke! :)  That's how my son feels about spiders.

My son had his first panic-attack yesterday!  My sister and mom said "Great!!!  He was the ONLY one of us who we thought didn't have anxiety problems." Ugh!  Poor guy!

It's overcast here and cool.  I love it!  Today is bank/mailbox/grocery shopping day here.  My son and some friends are going to a really popular apple orchard near here that has tons of things including the most wonderful apple cider donuts.  My daughter threatened him with bodily harm if he didn't bring us some. lol.

Oh, my nerves! Neighbors!

Comment by sk8eycat on September 5, 2013 at 12:42am

Oh, Patricia!  Whatta rotten day (except for the Chinese dinner)! We have some neighbors that make me clench my teeth, but at least they're not right next door. They're on the street behind us, and they party (loudly) all weekend, and fight during the week.

Is Mr. Next Door going to clean up your yard? He should.

FA, I wish I was one of those little plastic people traveling on one of those model trains!  The whole thing looks more fantastic than Disneyland.

I still want a model train layout with Victorian era houses, towns, and trains.  With steam engines!

Comment by Plinius on September 5, 2013 at 12:08am

I'm glad you feel better Patricia! I've been busy restarting lessons after the summer holidays: it's so good when people love to see you again!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 4, 2013 at 10:11pm

Yes, that sure is a crappy day, Patricia.  I'm sorry to hear about your husband.  What an ordeal having to call an ambulance and having to go through all that hassle.  I'm glad he's OK. 

I hope, at least, the Chinese food was good.  What did you order?

Here's a video to show your husband to perk up his mood.  I think he'll appreciate this.

Here's to a better day tomorrow.

Ruth, I'm spending a *bleep-pile* of money by running the A/C and waiting for the Schwan's driver to bring me my order of frozen food (ice cream!). It's 100 deg. outside right now, and anyone who has to be out in that heat has my sympathy.

I'm also working on The Pet Press Events Calendar. The Stray Cat Alliance is throwing their annual "Stray Cat Club" gala, if anyone is interested. (Tee-hee!  It will be held at a "private Bel Air estate," and General Admission is $150....NOT my cuppa tea!)

I'm also taking breaks from the keyboard to re-read a collection of Robert G. Ingersoll's best work. Wonderful stuff!  We need an eloquent, outspoken person like him now. An outstanding orator who can really move people.
