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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Chris, we have light winds but nothing bothersome for most. I get to stay inside and don't have to repair telephone wires or make roof repairs. 

Yes, Vancouver, B.C. had some winds and they appear to be moving north. 

I see the wind map intensifies over your areas today. I look forward to your description. 

From 1959 to 1961 I was Joan, the Kenai Weather Eye at Wildwood Station, Alaska. Very often, people would notify me to step outside and broadcast the weather forecast. I would be more accurate if I did so.

Thanks, Chris!

Good for you, Loren!

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 30, 2015 at 10:11am

Loren, I agree with Randy.  I'm envious as well.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 30, 2015 at 9:36am

Dan's a neat fella, Randall, utterly approachable, no pretense, no BS, just a regular guy ... who plays a MEAN piano!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 30, 2015 at 8:05am

Loren, that's great. Nothing like finding a "soulmate". I'm envious.

Looks like we're going to have a warmup--finally! Maybe I can get some golf and gardening in before I go on my "vacation" to Europe.

I see you have almost no wind, but there's a big curl near Vancouver Island. Am I right?

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 4:00am

That the usual pattern here, our weather comes from Iceland and/or the Azores (the islands under the big curl on the Atlantic). Storm tomorrow, I just read - 9 or 10 Beaufort.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 30, 2015 at 3:53am

It is interesting how that two wind patterns came together, one from the north, the other from the south. I could imagine some high winds and tides.  

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 2:00am

It's about 6 or 7 bft here, that means the wind whistles, growls and pushes against the windows. Flags are slowly unravelling at the edges and the seagulls make a game of sailing without moving a wing. But it's not an unusually strong wind for this area, unusual is over 9 bft.
