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.

Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe (Eric Whitacre)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia 20 hours ago. 3 Replies

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

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

Do you have to worry about fires?

Comment by Plinius on July 14, 2018 at 11:50pm

The same here. Anyone join me in a raindance?

Comment by Ian Mason on July 14, 2018 at 11:14pm

The predicted rain hasn't turned up yet except for the island of Bornholm so now there's a ban on almost everything including barbecues, a summer favourite for many. Drinking water in DK comes direct from the ground but hasn't been affected although there's a ban on watering crops near large cities. There might be some isolated, heavy showers in the coming week but we'll have to wait and see. It will take a lot of water to get things back to normal.

I do similar things, Kathy. Water shouldn't be wasted.

Comment by kathy: ky on July 14, 2018 at 3:27pm

Water rations or not I use water that I've washed vegetbles in,  for example,  to water the compost or plants. 

Comment by Patricia on July 10, 2018 at 10:49pm

I found it surprising as well. The surgeon figured I'd need the left one done within a year, & I'd thought I'd have more than the 6 months from December's x-ray, but the hip & June's x-ray had other ideas I guess.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on July 10, 2018 at 10:15pm

Wow, Patricia, I didn't even know hips could deteriorate that fast.

Plinius, your apartment sounds quite interesting. Surely from that location you get a good view and lots of light.

Drought in Denmark and flooding in Japan. <head spinning>

Comment by Plinius on July 9, 2018 at 11:52pm

Joan, our apartment is built on the roof of an old bank building. Our space consists of two floors and a piece of the old roof where we made our garden in big tubs. We use tap water or grey water - if possible - to water the plants and carrying water is only from the kitchen to the garden on the same floor. Water is not yet rationed here but we were asked not to spray gardens or wash cars.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 8, 2018 at 9:24am

Ian, do you get your water from a well? If so, is your water table still refreshing your aquifer? Are you rationing water?

Hopefully, those expected clouds and drops of rain will be generous!

We had a cold spell that broke yesterday, I think it was. Anyway, we are now in the 80-90°F daytime and cool nights. 

Comment by Ian Mason on July 8, 2018 at 8:43am

Indeed, Joan. The forecast is for a few clouds and drops of rain in the coming week but not much. There's a ban on bonfires etc. too. It reminds me of the big drought of '76 that hit a lot of Europe and even killed trees because the water table dropped so much.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 8, 2018 at 3:05am

Ian, your drought does not seem to be easing. 

Denmark's farmers fear huge drought losses
