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 on Saturday. 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

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

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

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

I did get the joke, Patricia. Which continent would you prefer?

Yesterday a cinema relay. First 'Gräns' (Border), a Swedish film about a customs officer who, because of a (presumed) chromosome irregularity can smell fear, guilt and contraband. Things however are not what they seem. Second 'Black Klansman', very hard to watch because of the slime that's dug up and stinks to high heaven but well worth it.

Rick just got his surgery call for Dec. 13th, & I've been waiting a lot longer …...sigh......

Randy, the walls of a home of 41 years hold a lot of memories. Leaving my home after 42 years was far harder than I thought. Sorting out all the stuff of living was even harder. We filled L&L's living room and Larry's area of the garage with boxes I am to sort and every time I open a box I see things that I used every day and want to keep. Poor Laura reminds me that my small bedroom will not hold 3,000 feet of stuff from my old home. I hope your family is as gentle with you as L&L are with me.

Good luck on the move, Canada.

Comment by Plinius on October 30, 2018 at 7:30am

Of course! From the pictures you showed us I think I'd stay in such a place too. I've been in this apartment for twelve years, and I like it very much, but I'm thinking of ways to move - my poor knees want it. When I move, everything I value most will come with me.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 30, 2018 at 7:19am

Despite the fact that my house (and yard) is way too big (and the only inhabitant besides my dog), they'll have to drag me away. As long as I'm able to maintain it, I'm staying put. I've been here for 41 years.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 30, 2018 at 5:26am

No! I don't want to move; I want to live in a U.S.A that values a progressive, liberal political system. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 30, 2018 at 5:23am

I would like to move;  to where? Ah! that is the rub, finding a place free of corruption, exploitation, racism, sexism, classism, you know the issues, I am too old, I hope the younger generation finds a more peaceful nation and one that values individual rights; a progressive, liberal political value system.

The moving was a joke thing Ian.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 30, 2018 at 1:46am

Thanks for the tips, Ruth. 

Happy moving, Patricia. Good luck in a new home.
