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'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

XTIANS BEWARE!

Good stuf, Loren. I'm still suprised that it's necessary. Then again, Danish history books are due to be changed. It's still taught as a "fact" that Columbus discovered the world was round!

Goodness.  This cat looks like a real baby in a hoody.

Hi Joseph!  Glad you like cats! :)

Loren, you should promote your stuff here, it's always excellent!

We let our 'kids' have a New Years Eve party.  Things got a little sticky.  No, literally, when we got home, everything was sticky. LOL.  Even the kids said it wasn't as fun to have a party when it was their home, and their responsibility!  Good lesson!

Best wishes to all of my friends on here.  You are such neat people and I'm very grateful to have all of you to learn from and talk with.~ Melinda

Here I go, promoting my own stuff again ... but I thought Zack Koppelin and his fight against the teaching of creationism in New Orleans schools is very much worth your attention ... so please have a look here.
