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

Thank you Ian Mason. It is an honour to have my sketch compared to Duchamp.

Wow, Tony.  That's a cool video!  Thanks for posting.  I enjoyed it as well.

Thanks, Tony. That's a really good version of the song.

Napoleon, it's true. Your Duchampesque video doesn't move.

In the final math course I took before the University of Florida gave me a final piece of paper, the professor one day opined that "even mathematics is founded on faith."

I enjoyed his sense of humor. He announced one day that even flies have been known to do derivations. He was referring the tiny dots we were seeing over terms in some equations. He'd chosen a text that in footnotes remarked that "For people who must live life the hard way, ...." I understood his words about faith as referring to my faith in my ability to solve math problems. Though I sometimes threw pencils at the door, my faith helped me keep at some problems long enough to find their solutions. I don't recall inventing any solutions.
