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?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Thomas Murray 21 minutes ago. 8 Replies

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

Great news, Patricia! What a guy you have.
I love to watch ice skating. So graceful and elegant.
Comment by sk8eycat on September 10, 2014 at 7:28am

I knew about the film, and had seen the trailer on their web site, nut the last I heard, they hadn't finished editing. 

It's been so many years that I barely recognize anyone...except Tom Collins, who was a principal skater, then company manager, and Morris Chalfen's brother in law.

Sk8eycat,  I just stumbled across this documentary on Netflix.  I haven't watched it yet (plan to) but wanted to make sure you were aware of it.

What a lovely start, Chris. I'm sure you deserve it.

Electronic devices, Spud! They've always had instructions resembling a Google translate version of something Asian or the work of a first-year student with a cheap dictionary.

Famous Sisters Struggled With Mental Illness. 1 Survived. Here's How.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 9, 2014 at 3:03pm

What a challenge you both face, Patricia. Your husband does sound like a survivor / thriver! You are too. You make a great team. 

My pacemaker prevented one of the procedures, but I can't remember which one. They had an alternative ... sorry, I don't remember which one that was, either. Bummer

Thankfully, our brains are very plastic and make adjustments that need to be made as life's circumstances change.

Thinking of you both.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 9, 2014 at 2:28pm

Wow!  What a survivor.  30% doesn't sound good, but much better than 19%.  

Comment by Plinius on September 9, 2014 at 2:23pm

So far good news, Patricia! I'm glad!
