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'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

Ian, little kids are so matter-of-fact about things. lol.

Felaine, I like all your pictures a lot!

My daughter has a group of friends (both girls and guys) coming in from the Chicago Suburbs tonight.  All sleeping in our basement.  And my daughter has to get up at 9 a.m. to work.  Fun. lol. They want to make a fire outside in our portable outdoor fireplace-thingy (technical term!), but it's COLD.  Hubby is outside mowing and chopping wood after working all day.  I got the makings for S'Mores also.

Hope you all have a good weekend my friends!~ Melinda

I love the hands up tuna pizza cat, and the not speaking to you cat is funny as well.  What do you think that cat is doing Steph?

Yes - cats would love a tuna pizza.

Comment by Lillie on May 9, 2013 at 7:58pm

I have never eaten pizza with tuna but I love anchovies.  I'll bet kitties would, too.

Comment by booklover on May 9, 2013 at 5:00pm

LOL, I love the Pizza Cat Steph. :)

I love all the posts and pictures.

It's supposed to rain today.

I'm between semesters trying to rest up for the summer.

How is everyone?

Great pictures, Felaine. Just my kind of humour too.

I can almost hear you smiling, Melinda. Sounds like a great Summer ahead.

My daughter was about 2½ when she noticed. She walked in while I was in the shower. Asked "what's that?" "Daddy's willy" "Oh. Mum says dinner". End of story.
