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'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

'Tis the season, gang:

Comment by sk8eycat on Wednesday

Carl:  All I want to do is {{{{{HUG}}}}} you!  Would a fat black (very soft) kitty help?

Ian: The phrase that used to make me grit my teeth is/was "top doctors say..." or "top experts..."   I always think of a pyramid of people with some doofus balancing on the apex. 

Stewart Moskowitz - THE CORPORATION Penguins

WHO decides who should be listened to , anyway?  I mean, if the Nobel committee fell for the "Mother Teresa" myth, and gave the selfish old bitch a Peace Prize....(for WHAT?  Founding convents?) ...and they DID!

Comment by Randall Smith on Wednesday

Ian, perhaps you can't drive yet, but at least you are able to post a cartoon--something I don't know how to do! Your problems are probably caused by having to drive on the wrong side of the road!

Carl, what can I say? Bummer, my friend. Here's hoping medications will help.

Comment by Plinius on Wednesday

Good luck driving, Ian! They say that you need two lessons for every year you're old - I really can't face 120 driving lessons, so I'll keep on walking.

The Neolithic in the Netherlands left not so many traces as in England - in the North East are some stones left from the last Ice Age, and there are some dolmens. In swampy areas some bog bodies, there are band ceramics, stone and bone tools and a few leftovers from hamlets.

Palouse Canyon looks wonderful!

Comment by Ian Mason on Wednesday

A bit like "latest research shows........"

Comment by Joan Denoo on Wednesday

Ian, I can't remember where I was, either. I will have to get my passport out to see where all I was. The first research project was in western Europe. I wanted to learn about seven factors, birth, death, family life, child care, elder care, health care, and family violence. The embassies set up meetings for me in working class facilities and interviews with people. 

Comment by Loren Miller on Wednesday

OUCH!  Sorry to hear it, Carl, but glad it was caught.  You stay well, dude!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Wednesday

Sorry to hear your bad news, Flying Atheist. Good luck with that medication.
