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.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Wow - those are beautiful flower Spud and Tony. WOW

Comment by booklover on May 20, 2013 at 7:09pm
Spud and Tony, absolutely gorgeous flowers! Love the cat pics Steph and Carl. I had a nice, uneventful day. That poor city of Moore, Oklahoma! So heartbreaking watching parents trying to find their children. How can there possibly be any climate-change deniers out there with all this extreme weather?!!! Goodnight to Joan and to Team Joan, us!!!! We need a more creative name for Joan's team! Anyone think of a good one?~Mindy

When we lived at Ft. Hood, the roadsides turned so many wonderful colors. This was just after Lady Bird started her campaign for roadside flowers. She scolded a highway worker who mowed the flowers before seeds set, and I am sure that mistake was never made again. She had a way of getting things done. And I am very glad she did the highway program. thanks Tony
