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.

No there isn't. This is awful!

Comment by Plinius on August 18, 2018 at 1:42am

It's ghastly, Patricia, no clean air anywhere!

Thanks Ian!

The smoke last year reached France, so it wouldn't be surprising, & we have more fires this year, although smaller ones but no less dangerous.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 17, 2018 at 6:22pm

I saw somewhere that the smoke has now reached Europe.

How big is British Columbia?


It’s big.


Vast.


Bigger than most US states, bigger than most countries.
This Canadian province is so huge that most people who live there rarely see it all. It’s so vast that you’d need well over a month to properly explore it all.


Technically BC is 944,735 km2 (364,764 sq mi).

It's been a little hazy here for the last week and a half, due to fires.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 17, 2018 at 9:02am

Patricia, with all the fires around you through the years, It seems like there wouldn't be any trees left to burn.  Do you know what percent has been burnt?

Take care.

These 17 acres were clearcut during the early part of the last century. The forest was allowed to regrow with no management and the fire danger is acute surrounding our buildings. We are in the process of applying for a grant to help pay for removing the undergrowth and scrub trees and create the possibilities of mature trees to grow into a well-managed forest. The process looks something like this:
