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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Three bookcases came north to my new home via the L & L's horse trailer.  Boxes of books wait to be put in their proper places. The snow lingers only in the deep forest. No sign of major wind damage on the property. 

I am very happy in my new home and enjoy Laura and Larry; they have as many problems as most property and business owners, and they have the attitude of "Let's get 'er did!" No whining or bellyaching about how much work they have to do or how they hate their jobs. 

Today is Laura and Craig's 52nd birthday. Those years since their birth went by so fast, I can hardly believe it. Now, all three of my kids are 52 years old. I am too young to have 52-year-old children!

My quote was from this article:

Donald, Carl is The Flying Atheist.

It is clear we can list the problems facing us. We can't live in a fog in these dangerous times. It seems hopeless to make this gargantuan failed society turn around; too many factors come to a peak, and thus Peak Performance, The Crash Course.

If we do not understand what happened and why we will repeat the past instead of learning from it. We echo the lament of the mainstream on the crucial points that explain why the US economy is at stall speed. The mainstream simply doesn’t get. Certainly the corporate media, not the corporations and not the politicians. 

"the period from 1945 till 1965 is now regarded as the “Golden Age of Capitalism”. Our generation lived through this Golden Age of Capitalism. What next? 

Well, it depends. That is our challenge to figure out, or diminish as the Golden Age of Islam faded.

Several of you have responded to "Carl", and I can't find an entry by him.  What can I do to find it?

Been to see *Hateful Eight' this evening. I got the feeling that Tarrentino was treading water (or fake blood) in making this. A locked-in-a-cabin-finding-out-whodunnit story that ended up with everybody dead or dying. There were editing mistakes with later references to earlier scenes that must have been cut plus dodgy dialogue: 'window of oppportunity' doesn't sound like a wild-west expression to me. A disappointment.

Comment by Ian Mason on February 21, 2016 at 3:30pm

That is the impression I get, Carl. A slide into a 'every man for himself and the Devil take the hindmost' mentality.

Nice one, Bertold.

The Little Mermaid has been decapitated a couple of times as a protest over the years.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 21, 2016 at 7:16am

To both Bertold and Carl, good posts.

Comment by Loren Miller on February 20, 2016 at 10:10pm

Excellent, Bertold ... could not be said better!
