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

Mindy, thanks for the Proof that Spider-man exists, and Jesus Loves me group psychosis funnies.  Never hear the last one before.

I've always liked the old bumper sticker that says "Zero to bitch in 60 seconds."

My American neighbour told me what bitch means: Babe In Total Control of Herself.  

Comment by Patricia on October 15, 2014 at 10:19pm

Yeah, I remember the saying too.

As for my daughter marrying the fanatic, we had to accept her decision as she was young, in love, & very impressionable. She never questioned anything.....ever!!!! it was explained early on we were not going to be involved with their choice & if they expected me to stay civil, the subject had to be kept closed. Now it appears all 5 grandkids are soaked & unable to think of reality. We get along but only because we refuse to get involved. We visit occasionally, & getting along is fine when it's long distance.

Patricia, I don't worry about my very Atheist daughter who never wants to get married or have kids, but I do worry about how I will handle it if my son marries a religious woman. I don't know how I could handle that. Time will tell, I guess.
I don't know what made me think of this saying, but we said it all the time in middle school (1979-1981), "Life's a bitch, and then you die." We thought we were so cool and that was so funny! Now that I know there's a lot of reality in that, not quite so funny!!!

Email me anytime, I like ''writing'' letters.....

Mindy, I missed your post about Dale being hungry again. That is good news indeed. Hope he continues in good health.  

Patricia, I know the feeling about family members who are so tied up in religious dogma, I can't get an original idea out of them. Oh well! It is their life. I just don't like being around bible thumpers either. 

You and I can make contact and do our thinking together.

I did like the Mac Joan.....I just couldn't update it. Ubuntu is a lot like Mac & I'm doing fine with it.
