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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Randy, you did not see rows of rows standing at attention of the Terra Cota Army?

This is what I saw, but it is a stock photo. I did not have a camera. 

Unexcavated Cerra Cotta Army

Thank you, Randy, I understand not sharing more because of being "attacked by a certain individual in this group. WTF?"

Comment by Patricia on November 15, 2017 at 1:59pm

Thanks Ian. The surgery itself is the easiest part, & I don't have issues recovering from them. Pain is very low & that is a big plus. 14 days & that med will be finished.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 15, 2017 at 1:57pm

Glad to hear that things are going well, Patricia. Modern medicine and surgery can do great things, even if there are some 'buts' like the negative side-effects of some medication. It sounds like the good weighs up the bad for you, though. As you say, a severe blood clot is not a complication you want to experience.

Thanks for the photos and comments, Randall. I can sense your wonder at it all. One of my family visited China a few years ago and was disappointed with the terra cotta warriors but I think at that point a lot of them were out on loan to museums around the world. The Wall looks great and now I understand why it's home to the world's hardest marathon. Did you walk along part of it?

Comment by Patricia on November 15, 2017 at 12:16pm

I have several friends here, Chris, & you are definitely not one of them, here or on any other site!

Comment by Randall Smith on November 15, 2017 at 7:31am

I'm almost afraid to continue commenting about my impressions of China for fear I'll be attacked by a certain individual in this group. WTF?

I did want to say that despite the overwhelming crowds, visits to the major tourist attractions in China were a once in a lifetime thrill. Much money has been poured into places like the Great Wall and Terra Cotta Warrior exhibit(s). They ARE spectacular! I tried to put myself back in time while walking on and through history. Pretty amazing. And, I'd never seen a live panda, either. She was busily eating bamboo, minding her own business. (No photo because it was a dark, rainy day.)

No words can express the wonderment in seeing the marvels of the world. No person can throw mud on that.

Hi Patricia,
Sorry for barking.
What have you learned about degenerative bone disease?
What do your docters suggest to minimise further damage?
My cousin (~age 68)  takes a supplement for bone health.  She has one child
She takes some kind of supplement once a year.  My thought and pea brain thinks that taking a supplement once a year won't provide feedback to know how the bones are doing.
I read that some supplements may cause bones to grow to fast and fracture.
I don't know scat though.

Then don't read it.

Comment by Patricia on November 14, 2017 at 7:38pm

Yeah Chris, but I don't need constant repetition of the same thing. I have had surgeries by the dozen, so I'm not new at this!

Comment by Patricia on November 14, 2017 at 7:32pm

I don't mind Joan, & yes, that's what I had done, so its a major deal, but pain afterwards is quite low.....for me anyway.

The blood thinner side effects are far worse for me, but I do react badly to many drugs. This just happens to be another. But.....risking clots in the deep veins or lungs, is not something I care to experience.
