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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat yesterday. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Stay at home order

I've been in an online argument with someone from an otherwise sensible radical/left-wing group. There was a post about an international 'meditation day' that would drive away C19. The postee claimed that there was 70 years of research behind the effects of meditation in altering the world! I countered with logic and a link to proper research - the 2006 double-blind experiment into the effects of prayer on recovering heart surgery patients. I've now left that group. My patience was worn out..

From last weekend's "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me" (which "was taped before an audience of no one"):

"Wash Your Hands with Bill Kurtis"

(which he sorta sings to the tune of Abba's "Dancing Queen")

"You are the washing queen, young and sweet. Hands are super clean.

Washing queen, I feel the beat from the tambourine. Oh, yeah.

You can dance. You can jive, having the time of your life, ooh. See that girl, hands so clean, digging the washing queen."

Patricia, the earrings are a hoot! I read that Mexico has had a big surge of "pneumonia" deaths, so the map of coronavirus there is likely misleading. It's the same thing Russia does.

Point taken about starvation, Ian.

I just learned that Chris Cuomo tested positive. We've been watching CNN. He broadcast from his basement yesterday.

Normal won't be happening for quite some time, if ever, until a cure or vaccine, or both are developed tested & available.

Comment by Plinius on March 31, 2020 at 2:41am

The map says it all, Patricia! Today we get more news of the government about the restrictions, I expect no return to normal just now...
