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've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

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

Happy 4th everyone. My daughter and her friend went to a party and my son went to see the fireworks with friends. My husband and I were our usual exciting selves, and watched a bad made for t.v. movie with the dogs and cats, lol. My sister is coming tomorrow from Green Bay with her kids, so I'm looking forward to seeing them. Oh, and they are bringing their ridiculously cute puppy named Summer. :) Ian, that comic is sad because its true. :(

Yes, climate change is a reality and this must be what the arctic is beginning to look like.

Ian, we really do need leaders who aren't playing games!

And thanks, Carl and Ruth, for the holiday wallpaper and for Garfield enjoying the Fourth.

I think this is the quote Felaine tried to post:

A virgin birth I can believe, but finding three wise men?

Great squirrel, Ruth. A European red squirrel, I think.

Another grey day in Denmark. The news says that this year's strawberry crop is severly affected. Makes me wonder how many non-commercial species are also damaged.
