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 Gun Industry's Killing in Killing (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris G on Wednesday. 15 Replies

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

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

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

We Are America / Love Has No Labels (John Cena - Ad Council)

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

I have never eaten pizza with tuna but I love anchovies.  I'll bet kitties would, too.

I love all the posts and pictures.

It's supposed to rain today.

I'm between semesters trying to rest up for the summer.

How is everyone?

Great pictures, Felaine. Just my kind of humour too.

I can almost hear you smiling, Melinda. Sounds like a great Summer ahead.

My daughter was about 2½ when she noticed. She walked in while I was in the shower. Asked "what's that?" "Daddy's willy" "Oh. Mum says dinner". End of story.

And Michael Bedard:

"Sitting Duck"

My fave, "Low Frog Along the Coast."

Now I have a print job I need to finish before I crash for the night.

DO look up Moskowitz and Bedard; one thing their gallery sites neglect to mention is that almost all of their works are visual puns... as in "Low Frog..."  I love that kind of stuff.

Buenas Snowshoes!

Hi, guys. Sorry I haven't been around lately, but I've been having another case of the glooms; not only do I have a terminally ill kitteh, but we've had house repair problems...last week we had to have major surgery on the drain system, and once that mess was cleaned up, the refrigerator/freezer quit.  Everything is fixed now, but I'm out about halff my meager savings.  so I have been spending computer time looking at some of my favorite contemporary artists to cheer me up.  I'll be posting a few samples so you can see why I love them. 

First, Stewart Moskowitz: Moskowitz - ENDANGERED SPECIES

Stewart Moskowitz - THE CORPORATION Penguins

Moskowitz - AQUARIUM - Vintage Art Print

I have prints of the last two; bought more than 20 years ago. The Penguin pyramid is titled "The Corporation"...appropriate, eh?

A box o' cats.  What more could you ask for? 

Good evening, Everyone.

Melinda, you sound like one very happy camper.  Sounds like you're going to have a great summer.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 8, 2013 at 5:25pm

I like the spa kitty Steph, and the box full of kitties is great Melinda.
