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

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

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

Small fires in sandy areas, but some dikes are in danger. A dike consists of stone, clay and water - it may collapse if it dries out too much, then big areas can flood.

I can't believe how careless people are with their cigarettes & campfires after all the publicity!

Comment by Ian Mason on July 15, 2018 at 2:21am

There have been grass fires in many places in Britain started by cigarettes, military 'live fire' exercises and even one by a gamekeeper burning the cover used by partridges. He wanted to be ready for the next big shooting party. Nothing serious in Denmark yet.

We've had quite a few rainy days so far, but we're still in a drought. I heard last year that it would have to rain all day every day for 3 years to repair our forests.....& we all know that ain't gonna happen. Then there's the lighting strikes that are very dangerous for all of it.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 15, 2018 at 12:49am

The forest is verdant green from all the rain and the grass looks like normal Ireland's hillsides. The heat has set in and things quickly dry out because of the sandy soil. We all keep watchful eyes on burning because the drying grasses make an excellent tender for the surrounding forests. Even with all the rain, the forests look stressed from an earlier drought. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 15, 2018 at 12:45am

We had terrible downpours a week or so ago. I thought the sand and gravel would end up in the creek in the valley. This glaciated soil does not hold water. The garden plots that I enriched last year in raised beds grow healthy weeds; I haven't planted them. Just have not been up to it. The greenhouse is all I can manage.

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.

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