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

Glad you liked the black cat.  I thought we'd all appreciate the non-superstition. :)

No superstition! lol

Felaine!  I'm glad you're okay!  When my kids were a baby and a toddler I fell down the basement stairs and landed on my head.  I crawled back up (the left side of my body didn't work for a minute!), and I was bleeding all over from my scalp.  My daugher looked at me crying, went an got a kleenex, took out her pacifier and said "here you go", and promptly went right back to the t.v.!  At the hospital they shaved a patch and stitched it.  My hair is still thin there all these years later. 

Speaking of squirrels, if anyone in the house even says that word, our Lab, Molly, runs right to the front window to check and "grrrrr" at them. lol.

Happy July 1st my friends!~ Mindy

Take care Sk8eycat, I hope you're well soon!

TFA, yes indeed. A lovely canopy of tress surrounds my home and one can watch them moving from tree to tree, without catching a glimpse of them. Then, all of a sudden, they burst into my yard and start their attempts to the bird feed. I have a special place for squirrels to eat, but they prefer the bird food site.

Joan, aren't squirrels fun to watch?  Especially when in pairs or small groups.  They can be so playful as they chase each other around.

Steph, that temperature would leave me wilted like day old lettuce left on a cupboard. Hope you have an air conditioner and/or a fan. I heard an announcement to start drinking lots of water. I drink 32 oz. a day minimum to keep my organs cleared out from all the chemo. I have a four hour chemo on Tuesday this week, so I will be able to sit under the fan as our temperatures begin to rise outside. Yesterday was supposed to start the heat spell that everyone else seems to be having, however, it was a cold, rainy, windy day. The cold chased me in.

Notched Tail Squirrel  joined No Tail Squirrel today and they tried to get on the bird feeder together. Quite a comedy.
