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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Pat, the eclipse will be that close to you it won't be a couple hundred miles from me. The first one my gdaughters will see and only a second one for me.
I hope Carl is comfortable. Surgeries are painful. At leastall of mine were.

The August 21, 2017 eclipse will be close to total where I live.  Probably 50 to 100 miles south to see a total one.

Chris, that would be fun! Hebrides it is. 

Hebrides

I'm going to wait for the August 21, 2017 eclipse over Carbondale, Illinois, USA. It will be 20 miles from my office.
Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2015 at 1:30pm

Is anyone off to the Hebrides to see the eclipse?

Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2015 at 1:30pm

And I'll try to see it, but the forecast was cloudy.

Don't worry Joan, I'm not depressed. I get a diet of painkillers and something for creaky joints. When I said nobody wants my opinion, I meant life - life never bothers with what it does to you. I've told myself a long time that I would be running to catch a tram etc. and today I did a realitycheck - ok, no more running. But I can read, write, talk to people and cats, do a bit of mini gardening -what else could I wish for? ;-)

Very few people will see a total eclipse of the sun tomorrow.  Chris will see 85%

Supermoon total eclipse of equinox sun on March 20

March 20, 2015 total eclipse times from land

Tomorrow! It will begin! Get ready!

Good morning world! Sun shines, expected to be 62 degrees today, green begins its yearly commencement, my muscles hurt from yesterday's spreading of 3 yards of manure, I am happy, and all is right with the world.  

My older cousin reminded me that we are in our 80th year and I reminded him we are elders. To my way of thinking, that is an honor not many enjoy.  

My thoughts and yours as well are of Carl. His vulnerable body continues to take terrible hits. If anyone can survive all that, Carl will. 

I offer a bit of spring imagery and sound to get is into the swing of coming spring.
