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.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

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

I've seen that Geert Wilders seems to have dropped out of favour, Chris. In Denmark the nationalists also lost a lot of votes. 6 out of 14 of DK's MEPs could be called left of centre to some degree and therefore greener. The dominant party was however the government's 'liberal' party. As you know, liberal in mainland Europe is solidly right-wing on every question and this lot are particularly hostile to immigrants and refugees. They're also traditionally the 'farmer's party' , love the EU subsidies and are sworn enemies of every attempt to change agricultural practices.

Thanks for the Summer weather update for Western Canada, Patricia. 

I had a too many neo-fascists reaction to the EU elections, Plinius.

Comment by Patricia on May 28, 2019 at 12:21pm

Governments all seem to be falling apart everywhere.

I also really wish these {political} climate change deniers would be on the fire fighting lines from April until October!!!

Comment by Plinius on May 28, 2019 at 1:57am

Such horrible news, Patricia! Expected, of course, but not hoped for.

The EU results don't look nice at all. Die Grüne did well and that's a good thing. For the rest I see nothing to happy about, too many neo-fascists and a lot of parties are getting smaller.

Comment by Ian Mason on May 27, 2019 at 11:23pm

The EU election results are in. It's frightening how well 'Front National' did in France but encouraging how well 'Die Grüne' did in Germany. In Denmark the mainstream conservative parties came out on top with the rest shuffled around a bit but a slight tendency to the greener. The nationalist share of the vote was halved, which is the most positive thing.

Oh groan…..

B.C. to be the ‘king of heat’ this summer: meteorologist

Higher wildfire and drought risks will come as a result of the heat

The Canadian Press May. 27, 2019 7:50 a.m. News Video

The weather this summer could be starkly different across the country, according to the latest long range forecast from The Weather Network.

Chief meteorologist Chris Scott predicts the wet weather that Ontario and Quebec have experienced in May will continue during the summer months and could lead to a heightened risk of flash flooding in some areas.

In sharp contrast, he’s forecasting more hot, dry weather for most of western Canada, raising the wildfire threat, which has already prompted evacuations in northwestern Alberta.

“We expect the wildfire risk to be heightened this summer,” said Scott, adding that there will be an ”above normal season” for wildfires for most of B.C., western Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Yukon.

But Scott said generally this summer won’t be remembered for its heat — except for B.C. — which he noted was expected to be “the king of the heat this summer.”

Good pictures, Ian!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on May 25, 2019 at 10:05pm

Thanks for the pictures, Ian.

Comment by Ian Mason on May 25, 2019 at 8:02pm

Yes, Joan. There were rallies in several cities and towns all over the country. There are EU and Folketing (parliament) elections in the coming weeks so there's hope for change.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 25, 2019 at 2:34pm

Splendid signs! Where was the rally, Ian? In Denmark?
