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

Joan your tomatoes sound really wonderful.

As for alcohol I abstain from it. None for me thanks.

Hope you all are doing good today.

You can buy pumpkin carving patterns for the pumpkins.

And a special set of knives to cut the pumpkin with.

It's so much fun - then you can bake the pumpkin seeds after to eat.

Here in Spokane, WA. we had our first killing frost this year on Oct. 4 and every night since then. I took in my tomatoes yesterday and this morning I tasted a few of the ripe ones and they tasted like tomato alcohol. So, I can eat tomatoes, get really happy and everyone will believe it is because I am such a jolly person.
Funny about alcohol, my Dad didn't drink anything alcoholic and I served a Chinese dinner one night with Longevity Wine, a delicious, sweet, aromatic wine from China and he fell in love with it. He drank many glasses and the old curmudgeon became a really funny man.
My son drinks even one glass of beer and becomes a raging bull.
So much for the power of alcohol.

booklover and Ian - those are great!

Always enjoy coming here to visit with all of you.

Yes, I just love Halloween.

It's my favorite - favorite of all "holidays".

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.

It actually got chilly here.

It's 52 degrees right now.

Wonderful weather.

I have a sense of humour that includes grusom.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 7, 2012 at 10:15am

That sounds just like what I would have done, Joan. Sorry I misunderstood.

Ian, that's kinda gruesome. The cow pig picture is cute all by itself.

Thanks, Tony. I didn't know about world animal day either.

Inseperable :)

Comment by Steph S. on October 6, 2012 at 11:59am

Hugs to you all too - thanks Ruth!

I missed "World Animal Day"? How could I do such a thing. I'll post about the day in my Wildlife group when I get back. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 6, 2012 at 11:12am

I need to clarify one thing about the calico cats. I had each one spayed after their first litter, kept the calico baby and when they proved to not be good mothers I had them spayed and that went on for three or four generations. No disinterested mother had a second litter. Thus, Calico I, II, III. So, I never had more than two mother cats and her kittens, and on a military base, with people moving in and out all the time, there was a lot of demand for cats. I don't know about dogs. We didn't have a mice problem, and cats even took care of the scorpions and spiders for us. I could never understand how a cat could eat a poisonous spider, but they did.
