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've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

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

Is that workhorses dragging farming equipment?

One of the highlights of my youth was watching the harness races at the county fair. Our area (NC Indiana) was once famous for its trotters and pacers (see, like the Indiana Pacers basketball franchise). Anybody ever hear of Dan Patch, world record holder?

Nice music and videos. Those horses look like tortoises compared with the hare.

Fun speed painting. Reminds me of something I saw regularly in my childhood. Here's the only sample I can find:

Nice music, y'all!

Patricia, I was thinking about you when I saw this video.  It's kind of fun. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 16, 2014 at 3:44pm

Yes, amazing speed painting!

That speed painter is tricky.

Good morning everyone! Another beautiful day with nice working temperatures. The beds slowly become readied for winter. Today, I am concentrating on the west garden. The garden has past its summer peak and an autumn one quickly approaches. I spend every minute I can out there.

Ian, I looked up "Time Team" and it looks like exactly the kind of subject I enjoy watching. I have save as many as I could find and will watch them after I come in from the garden. 

So, it is off to the garden and I won't be back in until the cold chases me in. Remember when it was the heat that drove me in? 

I hope each one of you has a very special day, full of beautiful sights, delightful sounds, aromatic smells, delicious tastes in the company of very special family and friends and that ever refreshing time of solitude. 

Take good care of yourselves, Daniel and Carl. I am thinking of each of you, knowing you are turning your enforced idleness into a time of healing. That is work, too.

That's an interesting response to putting tape on cats, but I wouldn't do it.  I agree with Chris.  It seems a little mean to me.
