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

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

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

Per ardua ad cælum: Through great labour/up steep hill to the heavens/heights. My own invention. 'Cæl' is the root of the English word 'ceiling'. I take it to mean 'as far as possible'. My own interpretation of the motto is 'I will try hard to have the best life I can'.

I'm also influenced by Camus's 'we must imagine Sisyphos as happy'. He (Sis) took life as he found it and went to work to get up the hill.

Thanks for the belly laugh, Chris. I enjoyed the part of your video where a pair of Atheists reverse door-bang Mormons. The rant part - meh.

For real, Ian? Gutsy.

I'm lucky. Living in "the country", I don't get many solicitors or proselytes. I like the idea of charging them by the minute.

Comment by Plinius on November 24, 2017 at 4:10am

I like it, Ian, a good realistic idea and image.

I've had a tattoo done. Sisyphos and the daily struggle for a better life.

Regarding ancestory.

There is a bible that belonged to my great great great grandmother - and likley before that containded family history going back to 1620. It's interesting that some family members corilated most of that information.  

My brother and I spoke about finding more details. 

Elils Island and census records should be available in the public record without the help of Ansestory commercial web sites.

Going further into church records from England, Scandanavia,  Contental/Eastern Europe,  Asia and elesewhere would be interesting.

The story of of ancestors should be more important than DNA history.  I have a book my great great grandmother wrote after arrival to the U.S that tells the story of the family.  It would be interesting to know prior personal histories.

I didn't know that was a mormon production.  It's great  If mormons are collecting that information.

I don't think any amount would be enough to cover the vomiting.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 23, 2017 at 5:55pm

Good one Patricia.   For $300 per hour, I just might be able to listen to the Bull-Shit.  On second thought, I would demand about 10 times that amount.
