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.

The picture and text were on my Facebook page. I don't know what to make of it.

Per my handy online Bing Translator:
A mutant fish, with ears and pig face, was found in the Black River between the cities of Santa Catarina Rio Negrinho and Mafra. the fact left baffled fishermen and has arousing the curiosity of many people.According to the fisherman and teacher Josef w., this mutation is due to pesticides used in the region.The case will be investigated, so that the fish was sent to exam ictiopatológico in Sao Paulo.
Scary to think what harm and other horrors we are causing.

I had no idea Sentient Biped had cancer and was having surgery!  How did I miss that?!  He's a great guy!  I certainly will be thinking of him and waiting to hear that all went well!!!  Thank you for the information Joan!

I like knowing that I am responsible for my meaning and purpose. I don't need to seek for direction from some external energy, the energy resides within.

Have you ever heard of the "butterfly effect" in quantum physics? It states the flapping of its winging in the jungle of the Amazon, has small effects that can accumulate into much larger effect. By using fractal geometry, the principles can be demonstrated. I know, it sounds outrageous, but quantum physics is outrageous; just listen to physicists talk about it. It does not fall under Newton's laws of motion; it has its own laws. 

If anyone is interested in learning more:

Don't let the geometry get in your way, just follow the visuals and feel the meaning. 

Our current climate change can be defined as having a human-made change in our atmosphere that may be small, but has an effect that is unpredictable and unstable.

Good morning friends. I suspect we had our last frost last night! That is more of a hope than reality, however we have a week of above freezing temperatures according to long-rang forecasting.

I know it will not come as a surprise to those of you who have known me for a while, I did a thorough review of literature on breast cancer after my positive diagnoses two weeks ago and ran across this film that has a promising story to tell. Women and men, please watch.

TED: Deborah Rhodes: A tool that finds 3x more breast tumors, and w...

She tells of how painful mammography is; I say, was! It was as though being squeezed by clouds, no discomfort, absolutely no pain. Even the biopsy was without pain for me.

I have no concerns about long term outcomes of this next procedure tomorrow. There is 99% expectation of full recovery. 

Now, on to more serious concerns, Sentient Biped should be in surgery this morning for removal of abdominal cancer. Our positive thoughts go with him.

Chris, we're all waiting very impatiently for Spring!!  It's been so cold here as well.

The Kaffir Lily is beautiful.  Do you grow it indoors or outside? 

I have a Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) as a houseplant.  My original plant was beautiful and had about a 16" radius.  During the summer I would keep it outside in a partially shaded area.  During the fall, the cooler nights outside would help it bloom for December after bringing it indoors before the freezing temperatures.  The flowers were just magnificent.  A couple of years ago, some kind of critter kept gnawing at it and destroying the leaves.  I don't know if it was a squirrel or a cat doing the damage.  It was never the same since and ended up dying.  I'm now nursing a new cutting from my mother's plant that she gave to me.  It's very small, about 3" in radius.  I'm looking forward to the time when it's big enough to bloom.
