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

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!

Here's an oldie but goodie. Many of you may have seen this before but the spirit moved me to post this.

Ian, I wasn't even thinking of the apostrophe.  I meant the second time I said Depps, and I meant Depp.  Great.  Now I sound even dumber! lol.

It's always a good thing to laugh Carl! :)

Comment by Ian Mason on July 16, 2013 at 2:00pm

Such confusion! It's called an apostrophe and shows, among other things, possession: as in Depp's.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 16, 2013 at 12:31pm

You are making me LOL, Mindy.  lol

Comment by booklover on July 16, 2013 at 12:07pm
OMG! Lol! DEPP! Damn auto- correct!
Comment by booklover on July 16, 2013 at 12:06pm
Oops, meant to say Depps, not Depps.
Comment by booklover on July 16, 2013 at 12:05pm
Glad you enjoyed the movie Ian. :) There was a flap over Johnny Depps part. People thought the part should have gone to an actual Native American actor. Then Johnny Depps came out with something about how he is like 1/32 Native American. I don't think that's what they meant! My own kids are 1/32 Blackfoot Indian. Also German, French, Swiss, Austrian, Scottish (sp?), English, Irish, and Russian!

Great groaners.

Been to see the "Lone Ranger" film. Read afterwards that it got hammered by the critics but I thought it was a pleasant couple of hours' light entertainment. One sharp comment in it: "What are you going to buy with all this silver?" "A country".
