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.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

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

I have a great temptation to send that to my mormon family, asking what has that poor child done to displease god?

Sooooooo many things I'd like to send to my son-in-law..........but must mind my own business so they will mind theirs.............

Oh, that's a horrible picture Patricia, but it does make a good point.

Hi, Ian! Glad you had a nice time. Wow! Learning to drive!! I hope you like it! There is getting to be a lot of traffic in my city. It seems like it's always something at the doctor the older we get! I hope it turns out to be nothing to worry about for you!
I'm going to me an old friend for breakfast. She's religious, but very Liberal. I guess I can handle that. Lol. Her husband just lost his job. I feel really bad for them. It seems like a bad time of year to find a new one! I baked a loaf of banana bread for them, and bought their girls a small present. I'm also going to pay for breakfast. I just want to help even a little.
Have a nice Friday, Friends!

Good for you, Ian, driving lessons! And I hope your future tests will bring good news!

Comment by Patricia on December 5, 2014 at 1:24am

Welcome home Ian.

Ooooh driving, that's exciting for you!

Better to test early to keep on top of things.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 5, 2014 at 1:18am

Hello dear friends. I got back from England a couple of days ago. Had a very pleasant time with family although age and illness are wearing some of them down.

Tuesday I began taking driving lessons. Theory only for the first sessions but I will get behind a wheel for the first time ever on the 16th Dec.

Before going away I had a routine blood test taken for prostate cancer and it came back as slightly suspicious. Antigen level 3.9. A repeat test this week showed antigen 3.5, which is in the right direction as normal for my age should be 3.0. My doctor says that there could be a dozen reasons for this but that she wants to err on the side of caution so a new test in two weeks time. I'm not particularly worried. I think I might just be a bit "abnormal".

I don't mind the glasses - I have glasses with prisms to prevent one of my eyes going stargazing all the time, but what I'd hate to pass on is the chronic tiredness and the stress disorder. I'm glad I never had children.

But you two have serious eye problems! It must be difficult for you to read and write on the pc.
