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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Hey Joan - don't be upset. I don't think most of us saw the picture. But, no worries. We are all friends here. : )

Great cat, Steph. Next time I get overwhelmed, will have to give that outfit a whirl.

And now, time to ratchet the cuteness level to 11 (or treacly, as it strikes you).

Tony, as usual, you photos and music start me off with a happy, toe tapping attitude. The Finnish winter scene is so lovely; glad I am not out in snow. I like my cozy room with your beautiful photos coming right to my fingertips.

Melinda, I am so glad you didn't see it and hopefully no one else did. I am ashamed of my carelessness and do not want to repeat that ever again. Thanks for understanding. 

Your two white cats eating together delights me. They seem perfectly satisfied with the eating arrangement.

Steph! What a wonderful photo of an overwhelmed cat! My sympathies to him/her/it.

Ian and Tony thanks for the music.

Tony I love the snow picture - breathtaking. Also, the Poland library is a wonderful scene too.

Booklover what a super cute cat photo. How funny.

Tony, I love those 3-D paintings!  I love your snow-path picture too! Beautiful nature! :)
