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's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Makes no sense at all. You describe the conditions terribly accurately.

sk8eycat, sorry, unable to open pug video. 

Comment by sk8eycat on December 11, 2012 at 2:52pm

Speaking of pugs (or whatever this is)

Comment by sk8eycat on December 11, 2012 at 2:49pm

Ian, WHERE did you find that pug video?  I'd love to send it (or a link) to one of my doctors...he's a pug fan.  Actually he's totally silly about pugs.

Thanks for posting that!  It drowned out my sister's daily whining on the phone with her Witless friends.

Joseph, I read the article and all the comments.  Ew.  People scare me!  The believers are outnumbering the more rational commentators, and their posts are getting many more "plus" votes.  I added my 2-cents worth, but I know we're a minority.

Local floods are entirely possible/probable, but we all know there's not enough water and/or ice to cover the entire planet to a depth of 5 miles. 

I keep thinking of 8 people sealed inside a box with thousands of animals eating and defecating, and no way to clean the mess out.  I used to "work" at a very elegant cats-only boarding "hotel," and we spent most of our time scooping, scrubbing, vacuuming...plus we had a state-of-the-art A/C and ventilation system.  The very last thing we wanted was for clients to come in the door and get a whiff of ammonia.  The "hotel" was one huge room, with each cat separated from the others by 5 ft or more, and the maximum number of "guests" was 35....  (I loved the place!)

The entire "ark" story is just incompossible, and the adults who still believe it frighten me.

sk8eycat,  The great flood has a new twist, (I don't agree) that the great flood was caused by the melting of ICE!!  Check out the story on khq.com (Noah's Biblical Flood Actually Happened, Suggests New Evidence) this story!  I smell a RAT!  The article and other articles are, to say the least, possibly might be christian leaning and fundamentalist in nature!!!  Smells like another pathetic attempt to mock science!!!  These guys live for B.S. !!!!!!!  Read the responses to the article and you get the feeling that we are not alone!!!!

One hell of a stag night :-)

Comment by Ian Mason on December 11, 2012 at 10:38am

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts. Yes, I have people I can rely on for support. Will also be coming here to let off steam and get cheered up. There's nothing like a LOLcat or dog for putting a smile back into life.
