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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Joan, it wasn't just the puritans, although they were the worst. Almost every colony wanted to have an official religion, only each one was different. At one point Maryland was mostly Catholic, or more tolerant of Catholics than the other colonies were.  

And then we had the conquistadores and Franciscan order in the Southwest...  We still have the missions as Historical Landmarks. What they rarely say is that the missions were built by indigenous people who were treated like slaves.

sk8eycat, I like your comparison of the Muslims who migrate and the Pilgrims who migrated. You are accurate on the terrible history of Puritanism.

Two things:

1. If I ever needed more evidence of the overcommercialization of Christmas, I was at SA today and they're already selling hte Reese's peanut butter cups shaped like Christmas Trees.

2. Why is the server for this site so slow?

A "friend" sent this today:

Unhappy Muslims -

I have to admit, this is brilliant...never heard it put this way...so succinct and to the point...plain and simple!!!

THE MUSLIMS ARE NOT HAPPY!

They're not happy in Gaza ..
They're not happy in Egypt ..
They're not happy in Libya ..
They're not happy in Morocco ..
They're not happy in Iran ..
They're not happy in Iraq ..
They're not happy in Yemen ..
They're not happy in Afghanistan ..
They're not happy in Pakistan ..
They're not happy in Syria ..
They're not happy in Lebanon ..

SO, WHERE ARE THEY HAPPY?

They're happy in Australia .
They're happy in Canada .
They're happy in England ..
They're happy in France ..
They're happy in Italy ..
They're happy in Germany ..
They're happy in Sweden ..
They're happy in the USA ..
They're happy in Norway ..
They're happy in Holland .
They're happy in Denmark .

Basically, they're happy in every country that is not Muslim and unhappy in every country that is!

AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?

Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.

THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN!

AND THEN; They want to change those countries to be like....
THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

Excuse me, but I can't help wondering...

How damn dumb can you get?
******************************
I wrote back to him that this was exactly how the Puritans and other Protestant groups behaved when they 1) emigrated from England to Holland, and then when the Dutch got fed up with them, 2) came across the Atlantic to North America.  (Forgot to mention the Catholic Crutch's behavior in Mexico and South america.)

Patricia, I just looked through your photo album and you have a lovely family of cats sharing your home. I look forward to seeing the before and after of your remodel.
