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

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

I'm not sure the sitting president* is capable of picking his nose. The Heritage Foundation will make the pick and he'll inflict it on the world.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 27, 2018 at 1:46pm
Bertold, does that mean that the sitting president can pick a new judge? Oh dear!

Has anyone mentioned lately how fucked we all are?

New computer arrived dead! Ach, Plinius! 

Thanks for the good news about Montreal, Patricia. A hint of sanity is always welcome.

Comment by Patricia on June 25, 2018 at 1:52pm

Pleased to see you Plinius! Was wondering if it was a computer issue.

Rick will be flying out to Victoria on July 3rd, pre-op the 4th, & surgery the 5th. His brother will meet him there on the 4th so he won't be alone.

Not being able to travel is a bit upsetting to say the least, but I couldn't handle the luggage for us even if I could..

Comment by Plinius on June 25, 2018 at 1:43pm

I'm glad you're all there! After the crash of my pc on June 7th I waited for the new one - which arrived dead... The next one will perhaps arrive next week if I'm lucky. Today I found some time to surf on Luca's laptop. Tomorrow my last lesson of the season - very strange to stop after teaching at that location for 27 years.

patricia, good luck with Rick's operation and your own, of course! Waving to you all!

Joan, we had one on Fox Mountain right behind us, but they got it looked after right away. We watched the planes from the back windows. Nothing else too nearby yet, but yesterdays electrical storm started 98 new fires. We've had over 300 so far this season.

Rick is having his surgery July 5th, & he needs recovery time before worrying about evacuation. My surgeon wants me to have my other hip done within a couple of months, & that recovery is 6 months.

I still maintain these climate change deniers should have to fight some of these wildfires from April, to October!

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 21, 2018 at 4:32am

Patricia, we worried about the wet spring weather we had and all the vegetation that flourished. This summer and fall will undoubtedly be a bad fire season. 

Do you have nearby fires? 

They do not help, given all the health issues you and Rick face this year.

We're responding to dozens of new fires across #BC this afternoon, mainly due to intense lightning in central and southern BC. Largest so far is a 90 ha #BCwildfire ~15 km west of #BurnsLake (pictured below). It's burning aggressively & visible from nearby communities & #BCHwy16
