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.

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

Thanks Joan.  I don't remember seeing that entire bit before.  It's the funniest bit of the Carol B show, and one of the funniest of any show.  For my taste, Tim Conway was funnier than all the rest put together.

Lula is adorable - such a beautiful cat booklover. I love that Lolcat you made Ruth! Very funny!

Lula is cute. I made a Monday LOL for you all.

Thanks Carl! She doesn't hide when it's just us at home though. She lets me hold her at night, usually until I fall asleep!!!!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 4, 2013 at 9:00am

Thanks for the Carol Burnett clips.  Very funny.  Her show was always a Saturday night staple in our house. 

Melinda, Lula is an absolute doll.  Too bad she hides herself.

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all have a good week.  I am counting the days until vaction which starts saturday.  We have a house-sitter for our doggie and 3 cats.  I told him he will never see one of the cats.  Lula only likes the 4 of us, and she'll be terrified that a stranger is here. Poor Lula!  Here is a pic of her.  She will be 11 in April.
