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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Sorry to hear you have that to deal with, Patricia. The joys of aging!

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 4, 2014 at 3:50pm

I don't listen to any commercials either Patricia.

As far as car insurance, even though I don't like their commercials, I go with Geico because it's the cheapest, according to what few comparisons I've made, and according to Consumer Reports.

If anyone knows of a cheaper insurer, I'll check it out.

GC - you'll know when you get the bill.

Comment by Grinning Cat on December 4, 2014 at 11:16am

Was that a real insurance agent, or just a quack?

Comment by sk8eycat on December 4, 2014 at 11:05am

Doesn't sound a BIT like a real duck!

So it's not just me that hates that Kay jingle, Felaine!  And I will never buy car insurance from Progressive (ugh to Flo) or Geico. How can they afford 15% off when they spend so much money on commercials? But the real turn off is Cialis. I literally scream and hit another channel. The greatest invention ever? The remote control!

Carl, thanks for the video of Sally Rand. She is so pretty, still. It seems fan dancing is good for the body. 

Felaine, a lovely costume. What an exciting and interesting life you have had. You must have a treasure trove of memories to pull out as you advance through the Golden Years. Your bravery and stamina amaze me. 

Chris, I missed the pj party too, I didn't read my mail in time. We are in a long cold blast ... I hope my plants survive. We usually have a warming spell in December that kills so many things. Freezing and thawing puts undue pressure on plants. If some die, I will have more room for vegetables. 

Randy, isn't it amazing how old some of the celebrities of our  generations look. Sally Rand does not look her age. 

Mindy, exciting day for you. Can't wait to see the photos. I have found a trick to see most of your "disappeared" photos. If I don't see them I will ask for someone to send them to me because I don't want to miss out on anything.

My sister was watching the USC-UCLA game this past Saturday, and it seemed like nothing BUT car and jewelry comm'ls.  (When I'm using the computer , I'm sitting with my back to the TV, so I get to hear all the crap....and none of the bands.)

We both want to upchuck when we hear, "Every kiss begins with Kay;"  It's so OLD!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 3, 2014 at 10:26am

You're so right, Randy. I especially despise the luxury car ads with the new car in the driveway with a gigantic bow. Puke!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 3, 2014 at 7:30am

And do you notice the number of car/truck commercials this time of year? I know the market is strong now, but it's ridiculous to have so many commercials. Toss in car insurance ads, and it's almost a slam dunk. Don't forget jewelry and ED commercials as fill-ins. IIIEEEEEEE !!!!!!
