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.

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…Continue

Sorry to hear that, Randall.  Seems that "Michael" had no consideration for anything ... but since when COULD nature consider?

Comment by Patricia on October 11, 2018 at 2:32pm

That's grim, Randy.

Comment by Patricia on October 11, 2018 at 2:31pm

Yes, anyone who can pay the big money for their medical procedures do, & the rest of us have to wait for the list to get to our turn.

From what I've heard and seen, Mexico Beach, Florida has been wiped out by Hurricane Michael. I care because that's where I vacation for two weeks every winter. It is (was) a beautiful little beach town, perhaps 1000 residents.

I already reserved a rental for February, 2019, but it looks like that's not going to happen. I'll have to wait to hear if the house is still standing. Doubtful, as it's 2 blocks from the gulf. Very sad.

They always find their way into a private clinic without waiting list.

Comment by Patricia on October 10, 2018 at 2:57pm

You can bet if the politicians were in this kind of agony, they wouldn't be on any waiting lists!

Comment by Ian Mason on October 10, 2018 at 2:55pm

It's the same in Denmark, Patricia. The government has employed more doctors but has paid for that by sacking nurses and other staff in order to balance the budget. The net result of the 'improvements' has been 4 (four!) more people working in the health service.

Comment by Patricia on October 10, 2018 at 1:13pm

The biggest problem with waiting lists is the government cutbacks.....closing OR's, not putting out the money to hire staff, medical staff shortages because not enough graduates stay here because salary is better elsewhere...…& on & on. The fires may have contributed, but not a huge amount.

We still have fires burning & we can smell the smoke occasionally, but they are under control.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 10, 2018 at 12:48pm

Patricia, you and Rick are still waiting for your surgeries? Did the fires have anything to do with the delays? What is the fire situation now? 

Autumn rains started here and temperatures drop quickly. The trip to the greenhouse requires a brisk walk or run and the temperature inside remains about 60°F. It is warm enough to take a thermos of coffee and a bread and homemade grape jelly sandwich.

Officials and their paperwork! Sigh...
