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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

I plan on being an old lady with a house full of cats! :)

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on July 18, 2013 at 2:03pm

Thanks for the update on the cats house, Lillie. I often fantasize about adding cat ramps to our main floor, with holes punched into wasted wall space for nests. But our house is large enough for two cats, so there's no excuse. I like ramps and stairs covered with material that gives them a secure foothold more than the smooth slippery-looking painted surfaces though.

Some people use carpeting.

But I've seen an open weave matting used too, which seems as if it would give a better purchase. I don't like this method of separated shelves because as cats age they have more difficulty successfully jumping. An elderly cat can fall when trying to jump up on  a chair from the floor. This would be far worse.

As you can tell, I've spent lots of time thinking about making over my house. Perhaps if I become a lonely cat lady in my later years I'll do it.

Joseph, that's cool you said what you did, and even cooler that no one tried to call you on it!

Joan, your chemo support-team looks awesome!  We are here for you too!  Here's a hug from me as well {{{{{{{}}}}}}}}.

Ruth I know what you mean about the heat.  My husband works outside, and he lifts heavy things all day.  He just looks horrible when he gets home.  I feel really bad for him.  He says there is a big difference doing this job at 26 than at 46.  My son and I are helping a friends mom move today! Ugh!!!!  At least the daughter, whose house she is moving from, has a pool we can all jump into! I can't imagine life without air-conditioning either.  SO many people don't have it though!

Patricia, I'm sorry you haven't heard from anyone about your friend. :(

Steph has been SO busy with school she hasn't had time to be on here, and she really misses it!

Carl, thanks for the hug.

Thanks for sharing your story about leaving in the middle of a sermon, Joan, and the lovely picture of you and your support team.

The farting preacher video is too juvenile for me to enjoy.

Thanks for the restaurant story Joseph.

It was 96° here and my car air conditioner can't cope. Too hot for me today. I can't even imagine living without air conditioning as so many people do. We have three more days of heat wave coming.

No FA......nothing more than the note saying she was under a doctor's care. None of the kids have ever answered any of my messages, & her sister isn't very diligent either. Her son is not listed in the phone book with a land line so I can't call that little town he lives in. Just a matter of waiting for someone to decide I should be told something I guess.

BTW, where is sk8eycat?  She hasn't meowed around here in a while.  

Patricia, did you ever get a health update/status for your relative?   

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 17, 2013 at 9:10pm

Big hug to you, Joan.

Chemo day Support Team at Gordy's for lunch. The only food I can keep inside me for a day or two after chemo.
