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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Thanks for the fellow-healing, Joan. My recovery is going well, excepting for antibiotic-induced diarrhea. Thanks for the new Symphony of Science video. I appreciate your sharing your skin progress. I never realized that one’s skin got holes where the radiation beams entered. Beasty devils,indeed!

Happy Halloween everyone!!

Lots of xmas stuff in the shops, but first Sinterklaas. UN-spokesperson Verene Shepherd said that the Netherlands are heading back to slavery because Sinterklaas has got coloured servants: called Black Peter, Moorish, in a Swiss Guard outfit. Not even the coloured people in this country understand that quote about slavery.

Spud, you asked me on Monday about the prices of Apple compared to a PC. At the time I bought my Mac, I couldn't afford a new anything and when this opportunity came up, I was delighted. I don't know about the present price differences.

Really, Patricia?  It shows up for me.  I'll repost.  Thanks.

Today is the day before Halloween.  I took the following picture earlier today of the mobile phone store at the corner of my street.  This display has already been there for several days now.  For some people, Baby Jesus can't come soon enough.

When my former husband was in dental school, I was his practice patient. He had to learn how to inject in front of the needle and I had a lot of injections in those days (1956-1959). He became very good at it, and his patients adored him. When he was in private practice his patients told me he was the most painless dentist they had experienced.
I wonder what he could have done with computer technology.
