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.

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Yeah, I just heard it on the news. Piss! Just when you think you got a problem licked, it jumps up and bites you.

Actually, I heard she revoked her Swiss citizenship the very next day. So, Michelle Bachman is stiil our problem.

Comment by Tony Carroll on May 10, 2012 at 11:31pm

Hey, did anybody hear that Michelle Bachman now has dual citizenship? She recently became a Swiss citizen, as her husband is Swiss. She said her children were interested in doing it, so they did it as a family. I just want to say to Switzerland, what the hell were you thinking? She,s your problem now, no take backs.

Great picture and caption, Roz and Russ! And it's good to hear from you.

Sounds lovely. My daughter went snorkeling at the GB Reef and still thinks it was the greatest experience of her life. Fair winds and happiness to you.

Sailing is great Ian.  Thanks for asking.  We are leaving Brisbane area on Saturday and sailing up to the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands in two days.  We'll be in Australia waters until 2013 before heading to Indonesia.  You can follow us on our blog at http://worrallwind.blogspot.com

Steph, I probably will start a discussion about cat fiction in a day or two; I had a typing and printing job that I had to finish tonight so it could go out in tomorrow's snail mail, and I have a feeling that the Pet Press ads are going to start coming in next week...so I'll try to get my act together by this weekend.

The only cat warrior books I've read have been Mark Rogers' "Samurai Cat" series, and I got those mostly for his artwork. Oh, I know about Larry Niven's series about the Kzin, but I've never read any.

So many books, so little time....
