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

Those are Sushi cats. They are dressed up like Sushi. : )

Funny huh Ian?

Yes, no one should feed the church Flying Atheist. It is a waste of money to give money to the church.

I hope you have a lovely day, Joan.

Great sign, Carl.

Thank you for your kind comments, Steph and Chris.

Steph, what are those cats tied to? It looks like fossilised bubble-wrap!

This morning shines with blue skies and warmer temperatures. It is 55∘ F now and the next few days predicted to be warmer. 

My Granddaughter, her partner and their combined five children will be here this afternoon; It promises to be an outstanding day. 

Have a great day, everyone, with lots of laughter.

Joan I am glad you had your procedure done and you felt no pain.

Ian congrats on overcoming addiction.

Joan, I'm glad you had no pain with your procedure, and I really hope chemo has no bad side-effects for you!  Taking naps is a good thing!  I take a nap a couple of times a week with a dog at my feet and a cat on me! :)

Congrats, Ian! And many more happy days to follow, I hope!
