Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

New Rule: Win or Go Home (Real Time with Bill Maher)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

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

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

Patricia, I worry about the generation just coming up (my great-grandchildren). They will need the skills of my grandparents and have very little interest in learning how to survive and make-do with what one has. I know my children will do well, my grandchildren not so well, and my great-grandchildren know and want to know nothing more than what is on TV or the cell phones and have no interest at all in growing their own food, making their own clothes, and fixing and inventing their own tools. 

We decided the best way to teach them is to give them simple chores geared for their age and ability, expect them to participate in preparing soils, planting seeds, managing crops, canning and freezing foods, and participating in making delicious, well-balanced meals. By observing the processes of each stage, perhaps they will recall the skills when they need them.

But global warming is fake ya know.....

No idea what the future will be for the young ones.

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. 

Comment by Patricia on July 15, 2018 at 12:24am

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?
