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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

got away with what you said? Did your father expect the tar and feathers treatment?

The other day, me, my wife and our parents went out to eat at a new restaurant. The conversation turned to politics and religion. My mother said that I shouldn't hate Christians. I said that I had no problem with Christians BUT their silly notions of a god and jesus, I detest!! I didn't realize that I had been a little too loud and everyone in the restaurant stopped eating and looked at me!! Quick to recover, I said, Why am I getting so upset when god and jesus do not exist!!! Everyone went back to eating AND no one contradicted what I said!!!!! When we were back on the road, my father turned to me and said, "I can't believe you got away with what you said, Impressive"!!!

I like that he is disgraced publicly too! :)  Gross though! lol

That guy is "preacher" Robert Tilton.  His Wikipedia entry even has a whole paragraph about how the "Farting Preacher" videos got started.

I just love when people like him (a major con artist) are disgraced publicly.

Yes, Mindy, those sounds were added.  Pardon my crude humor, but I just laugh hysterically at that video.

They're waiting for the last trump. I've read that Taoist munks don't eat vegetables and beans. They believe that each person has an allotted amount of air in a lifetime and that farting therefore shortens the span.

Those sounds were added in, right?! Eeew!
