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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

I still see "dozen" used quite often here, but no "score" or "gross".

I don't know what a "gross" is, but still know what a "score" is because I memorized Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address in school and still remember most of it.  It starts with "Four score and seven years ago...."

Comment by Ian Mason on April 12, 2018 at 1:20am

Joan, it seems the old measures and words are being lost - dozen, score, gross. I had them drummed into me at school along with 12 pence = 1 shilling, 20 shillings = 1 pound.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 11, 2018 at 2:34pm

Ian, you wrote, "Someone is daft or doesn't know that a score is 20."

I am daft, and I don't know what 20 scores.

I forget who it was, but found it interesting when one (Democratic) senator asked Z. "Would you be comfortable telling us which hotel you're staying in? Would you be comfortable giving us the names, dates and times of everyone you texted last week?"

Comment by Ian Mason on April 11, 2018 at 7:32am

I also read a quote about 'scores of people who use Facebook'. Someone is daft or doesn't know that a score is 20.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 11, 2018 at 7:24am

We've all heard the saying, "There's no such thing as a stupid question". After hearing Orrin Hatch's question to Mark Zucherberg yesterday (Senate hearing), I disagree.

"If you don't charge a fee to use Facebook, how do you make money?" Did you see Mark's expression?

Several other senators made fools of themselves. No surprise there!

Even if god's anger management program doesn't work, we're all saved!!!

Yes, Joan, & many of the young ones volunteer & get trained for the firefighting here.

I was thinking to get the suitcase & cat carriers out & ready for packing next month.
