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.

Finding Your Roots

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

I love that you threw in a side of atheism to go with that anti-republican entree, Mindy. It sounds like your sister REALLY needs to get out more!

Comment by booklover on November 5, 2014 at 7:03pm
Crap! I just accidentally deleted my whole reply!
It said that I love your list, Carl, ha ha!
I put that if you voted RepubliCON, unless you're wealthy, and don't care about women's rights, LGTB rights, etc., then you fucked yourself. Then I added if you ONLY voted republican so you don't have to help poor people, then your IQ is probably your shoe size (Prince.)
When my sister messaged me about unfriending me, I maturely added that also there is NO invisible sky-daddy, and she knows it. She was raised better than that.
And know you all know what a bitch I can be. :)

@ booklover, wow...your sister unfriended you over politics? lol Well, you spoke your mind, so be it...

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 5, 2014 at 6:44pm

Mindy, I would love to know what horrible things you said about republicans that would make your sister un-friend you.  lol

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 6:36pm

LOL @ CLAWS.

I didn't end up voting. I went there, the line was wayyy too long, and I had dinner plans with a friend. I swung back after dinner, and the polls were closed. lol

I don't know what it is, but this daylight savings time makes me sleepier so much earlier at night. It looks like midnight outside, when it's only 7:30pm lol Anyone else have a struggle with this? :=D

Comment by booklover on November 5, 2014 at 6:33pm
Awwww, that's so cute! Lol.
Charlie the kitten is running all over the house, and the other cats just stare at her like she's nuts! It's so funny!

To the Democrats

Comment by booklover on November 5, 2014 at 6:25pm
I put my Very Strong opinion about the republicans winning on Facebook, and my SISTER unfriended me! WOW!!! I don't have time for that shit. My liberal friends "liked" it, and the republican ones ignored it. My page, my opinion, and I'm not getting off Facebook, OR keeping my mouth shut.

Grinning....I got that email from CREDO earlier today, and one about Women's Rights from UltraViolet.  I signed both of them.
