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.

Thanks for the bread recipe Patricia. It sounds yummy. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 28, 2013 at 4:15pm

Thanks Patricia, I'm going to try that bread.  Do you know what the vinegar does?

Comment by Patricia on March 28, 2013 at 3:52pm

Not that interested in sweets Sk8ey so can take them or leave them. If I do eat ice cream though, it cannot be on top of a meal.

Joan, I'd be glad to list my bread ingredients....it's my own & I don't pay much attention to measuring except for the 4 cups of water.

I get 3 loaves out of this.....

4 cups water

tsp sea salt

1/3 cup olive oil

very rounded tbsp honey

tsp cider vinegar

2 tsp yeast

1 cup fresh ground flax seed

1/2 cup bran

whole wheat flour

-------

Knead enough flour until dough is flexible without sticking. Let rise an hour or so, then shape into loaves & bake 350°F. for 40 minutes, or desired doneness.

LOL cake.  Reminds me of Alice In Wonderland.  Wonder if it tastes as good as it looks.  Probably really doesn't matter.

Patricia and Melinda, there ARE fat-free ice creams and frozen yogurts on the market, and most of them rate from "Acceptable" to "WAAA-HOOO!!!" Schwan's makes the best (smooooth!), IMO, and they deliver.  Dryer's makes low fat/sugar free ice cream in fabulous flavors, and Ben & Jerry's has been developing some good low-fat products for several years now.

I just wish somebody would make CRANBERRY!  Sherbet, sorbet, ice...I don't care.  I've emailed B&J's and the local ice cream masters (Baskin Robbins), and I haven't even received a polite (or rude) reply. 

The late Jeff Smith put a great recipe for Cranberry Ice in The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American, but I lack an important ingredient...a Donvier machine.

(Cranberry swirled with tangerine or orange would be lovely, too.)

Drooooool

Patricia, do you have a bread recipe you are willing to share?
Comment by Joan Denoo on March 28, 2013 at 1:41pm

My son has trouble with pork and poultry. Causes bloating for him. 

Comment by Patricia on March 28, 2013 at 1:34pm

EWWWWW......looking at all that sweet stuff makes my teeth ache......& they are false!!!!

After hearing the US news for years & reading the posts here, I am sooooooo glad to have our healthcare system!!!!! 

Ice cream is touchy for me as the fat content is too high. The only way I'm able to eat it is on an empty stomach & sometimes it'll still give me bloat. Starchy foods are also bloating for me, beef in very small portions is tolerable, pork, poultry, & seafood are ok, but garlic or red salmon are complete no-no's.

Sentient Biped, I'm glad to read that you're back and on the mend!

Hey all... Back on my feet now. The surgeon took a chunk of stomach, a big tumor and a thin slice of liver. I am up walking around now.hiccups hurt like hell, Ow! Back to the routine soon. Thanks for the well wishes it matters a lot!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 28, 2013 at 12:14pm
Ruth, such a playful cake; I bet the baker/decorator laughs a lot through the day, and makes everything a bit more fun.
sk8... Poor cat who does all the work. I used to feel that way; now I do what I want to do and let the rest go ... what will it matter 50 years from now. Except taxes, grocery shopping, a wee bit of laundry and washing a dish or two. Life gets better after 70 years.
