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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 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

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

Good for you, Loren!

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 30, 2015 at 10:11am

Loren, I agree with Randy.  I'm envious as well.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 30, 2015 at 9:36am

Dan's a neat fella, Randall, utterly approachable, no pretense, no BS, just a regular guy ... who plays a MEAN piano!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 30, 2015 at 8:05am

Loren, that's great. Nothing like finding a "soulmate". I'm envious.

Looks like we're going to have a warmup--finally! Maybe I can get some golf and gardening in before I go on my "vacation" to Europe.

I see you have almost no wind, but there's a big curl near Vancouver Island. Am I right?

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 4:00am

That the usual pattern here, our weather comes from Iceland and/or the Azores (the islands under the big curl on the Atlantic). Storm tomorrow, I just read - 9 or 10 Beaufort.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 30, 2015 at 3:53am

It is interesting how that two wind patterns came together, one from the north, the other from the south. I could imagine some high winds and tides.  

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 2:00am

It's about 6 or 7 bft here, that means the wind whistles, growls and pushes against the windows. Flags are slowly unravelling at the edges and the seagulls make a game of sailing without moving a wing. But it's not an unusually strong wind for this area, unusual is over 9 bft.

@Chris, the animated wind map looks severe in your area.

Is it as windy in fact as it looks on the map? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 5:58pm

I meant to send you the map
