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.

Now I know where new nuns come from.Thanks, Patricia.

Like the cats, Steph. Perhaps there are some who think claws solve problems, a sort of NCA.

Finally a clear explanation of sin, heaven, etc.

If you are Catholic, you will laugh out loud.

If you are not Catholic, you will laugh even louder!

TFA, you've touched a pleasure-nerve. Radio! Not having a TV, that was our entertainment. Sunday afternoons, just after dinner, was comedy hour. The greats of the 50s repeated: "The Goon Show" and "Hancock's Half Hour" are the ones I remember most. Then the current crop of the 60s with "Round the Horne" and "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again" being the most memorable. "The Navy Lark" ran from 1959 until 1975, changing style with the years. For those who don't know it, the Goon Show was a revolution in radio and comedy. The Monty Python team have often said "no Goons - no Python" so it inspired a generation.

The most serendipidous discovery I made when I first got a PC 5 years ago was BBC Radio 4 Extra, where they are all repeated. The best of them haven't aged at all and I usually have a weekly session of loud, neighbour-disturbing laughter. Such joy!

Flying A, get an electric toothbrush.  The biggest problem with teeth is gums and the electric toothbrush is the best for gums.  Use it for about six months prior to going to the dentist to get everything healthy again.  This might save you some gum treatment.

The Flying Atheist, skipping regular dental cleaning doesn't make you a bad person, it only raises your risk of mortality. There are lists of the most critical things you can do to avoid dying prematurely, like hire someone else to climb a ladder to clean your gutters (so you don't fall off). Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is right near the top of the list. Bacteria you never notice in your gumline can "get loose" and infect your heart. BTW, I did not see that walking stick till the third time I looked.

Yes, sk8eycat, the horrors of metal on metal joints has been newsworthy for months.

Ian, that Satanic Leaf Gecko will inspire a horror movie. Those red eyes and sharp features *shudder*.

Steph, I would not want to wake up with that cat staring in my face. I'd leap out of bed screaming and hit the wall or something.

Nice to hear from you. Hugs
