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

It is, and the more basic I eat the better I feel. For the rest of the day: lots of veg and a little salmon, with a few nuts to snack.

How do you feel, Joan?

Chris, your breakfast sounds delicious.

I have never heard of these plants either. It seems they do not taste good, however, the reports say they are very nutritious

Good morning! Thanks for the superfruit list, Joan. The only one I don't know is the noni. Just had breakfast: a blender full of fruit, a handful of seeds and some almond milk; a treat!

Steph, those sweet cats make me feel all warm inside.

Loren, sounds good ... however there are so many bleating sheep with the power of law making, marriage definitions and school board decisions, I think a good loud resistance is in order.

Melinda, according to one source, the outside flesh is also edible. I don't know, I have never eaten one. But they certainly appear to be healthy.
