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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

TFA, I can also recommend Susan Jocoby, Bart Ehrman, Oliver Sacks, and Steven Pinker. I put the others on my reading list. Thanks so much.

Sentient Biped, thinking of you. Found a naturalistic garden you might enjoy:

Sentient Biped, thinking of you and hoping things go well.

There's something obviously fishy about that porcine/piscine. Excellent Photoshop skills though.

Interesting videos Ruth. I didn't know that the "butterfly effect" started as a jokey aside that the moron media took seriously and turned into a headline. I agree with Krauss, that we make our own meaning in life.

Hey Ruth! Miss seeing you on here. I hope you are doing OK.

I'm enjoying all the videos and pictures that have been posted.

Yes, Grumpy Cat is famous. He's even on TV with Anderson Cooper!

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.
