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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Enjoy!

Comment by Ian Mason yesterday

That's a stunner, Felaine. What is it celebrating/refering to?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

@Sk8ey - No truer words: We may lose or we may win, but we will never be here again.

Comment by sk8eycat yesterday

Oh, is THAT what happened?  I thought it was my antique (almost) Dell, or that I owed AT&T U-verse (which I never signed up for....they just decided not to make their less expensive system available in this ares anymore. Like the effing cable companies that charge $75 or more per month for garbage.  I'm shopping for an indoor antenna....)

One of my favorite statues (most of my cousins and their grown children live in northern Arizona...as did Aunt Phyllis who I loved as much as my own mother.  The details on the wall of the building are ALL trompe l'oeil including the windows and The Eagles

It WAS offline, Chris, issues with the domain license, I suspect.  I for one am VERY glad it's back!!!

Comment by Plinius yesterday

O, there you are! I was already getting withdrawal symptoms: this afternoon the site was off-line!

Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

Oooooo, sk8ey, if you find your pic of Bob, Ginny & Pixel, PLEASE post it!!!

Sounds good, Felaine! Please send me a cricket... For Dutch standards we have a heatwave here, last night was a record of 25°C, add 2° for urban areas. Weather forecast: tomorrow 36°C - 96°F. I'm dancing to get some rain and thunderclouds together!

I like the statues very much!

Comment by Ian Mason on Thursday

That sounds remarkably relaxing, Felaine.

Here's G.B. Shaw.

Chris, I'm not bragging, but this house  was built in the late 1930s with central heating; dad had the system rebuilt with A/C added in the late '50s.  It's expensive to run all the time, and not necessary, anyway.  Southern California IS a desert, and the evening temps do drop dramatically when the sun goes down.

I have all the windows open, listening to a cricket choir right now
