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.

Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe (Eric Whitacre)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia yesterday. 3 Replies

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

I hope you pick up soon, Ruth and Kathy. The days are getting longer now.

Yes, Joan we haven't managed our world very well. Short-term monetary gain has trumped common sense time and time again.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2016 at 3:36am

Ruth, I am sorry to learn of your health problems. A heart cath sounds like some serious things going on, complicated by other variables. My hope is that you and Kathy get your vigor back soon.

Get better soon, Ruth and Kathy!

I hope you feel better soon.

Me too. On the low energy. It's the shift in daylight hours that gets me. Can't get in the yard and do anything. Tiresome.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 6, 2016 at 8:17pm

Thanks for the inquiry, k.h. ky. I've had a chronic sinus condition for years, and it often turns into bronchitis when the weather changes to Winter, despite humidifiers and HEPA filters. This year it waited until the real cold to hit a few days ago. Problem is, I need  a heart cath. Can't schedule it until I'm recovered. <sigh> Just trying to take care of myself. The antibiotic won't be available till tomorrow. I've been low energy, and not very bright lately.

Hi Ruth. Where you been? I hope all is well with you and yours.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 5, 2016 at 9:44pm

Hi, all. Sorry I haven't been around lately.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 5, 2016 at 7:52am

I "inherited" a G.F. grill from my father and just recently used it to grill a bisonburger. WOW, was it delicious! You'll love yours, Carl.

Ditto on the video, Joan. Yes, "sorry".

A very good video, Joan!
