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.

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hey, Kathy, allow me to add my welcome back to Randall's.  It's good to see you here again!

Comment by Randall Smith on June 19, 2018 at 6:56am

Kathy!! You're back! Good to see your voice again. Now if only Carl would return.

Comment by Patricia on June 19, 2018 at 12:01am

At least I know what to expect GC, after getting my first replacement last October. Pain in my lower half is really wearing thin.

... 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' refers to us as 'semi-evolved simians' ...

... many of whom still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea. (Certainly applies to smart watches!)

Patricia, I hope everything goes well with your hip replacement, and that you get lots of mobility back!!

Spud, it turns out that in birds and some other animals, it's indeed the ovum that determines the offspring's sex. Much more at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex-determination_system Sex determination systems evolved independently several times.

Kathy, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' refers to us as 'semi-evolved simians.'

It's been a pleasant weekend with a friend. We went to the opening of a local art exhibition on Friday (pics follow) and then saw 'King Charles III' on DVD, an excellent piece of TV drama. Saturday we ate haggis for lunch and then went to an 'Opera in the Park' concert, although persistent rain drove us to the nearest coffee shop and then home. Very nice:

Got an excellent report on my right hip, Spud, but I do still have some groin pain. The ligament is inflamed so I'm to stop the exercises, which I already did. I also have some stiffness, but apparently that can last for up to 18 months or something.

I also think the left hip getting worse is causing some of the pain in the right side because I can hardly walk...…..AGAIN!.

Sounds like you did better than me.

Comment by kathy: ky on June 17, 2018 at 10:32am

Spud, I got nine out of ten. Strangely enough I missed the one on our ancestors. I know we came from prehistoric ancestors. Lucy, Neolithic,  Paleolithic but when they were referred to as animals I didn't pick up on that. Lol. Yes, I know we are all animals.

Comment by Idaho Spud on June 17, 2018 at 7:11am

I only got 9 out of 10 right on the science quiz.  Didn't know which parent determined the sex of the baby.

I knew the technical answer that the Big Bang was not an explosion.
