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

The photo was so many kb that it cut off part of what I wrote...Duncan's "lanai" is a lot longer than it looks from that angle, and he has his own cat door cut into the house wall so that he can come and go as he chooses.  One of the perches gives him a good view of the hummingbird feeder AND the gas grill.

I don't think it would work half so well if my friend's patio wasn't a semi-jungle...she has always been mad for gardening, and some of those hanging plants have been there for more than 30 years...through drought, earthquake(s), everything. 

I could not do that, and the two cats we have now are afraid of the outdoors, anyway.

Funny FA!   But personally, I never bitch about the heat, only about the cold.  I so much want to move to a warmer climate.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 11, 2014 at 3:53pm

I like that idea Felaine.

A friend of mine has an all chain link covered outdoor "lanai" for her cat, with built-in wooden perches, a renewable pot of "cat grass," and litter box.  The cat has his own cat door cut in a wall of the house; the sides are 3 times as long as the width you see here, and he does spend a lot of time here.  , and there's a people-gate at the opposite end.

Suicide bombers blowing-up is worth a smile Ian.

Comment by Grinning Cat on February 11, 2014 at 12:28pm

I like the enclosed outdoor walkway as well! Some of the ideas reminded me of "The Cats' House" in California, and one in Japan.

Have a great trip, Ian!

In this weather, I wouldn't mind having a bed attached to a radiator.  The perfect compliment to my flannel sheets. 

Ian, that sounds like a wonderful trip.  The history!  There must be something interesting to see everywhere you look.  (I imagine Jerusalem must be filled with hoards of religiously fanatical tourists as well.)  You sure know how to plan a holiday.  I'm glad you're able to travel and explore.

Latest news item: In Iraq, a suicide-bombing trainer has blown himself and 20 trainees up by mistake. I smiled when I read that.

Hello folks. Hope all are well.

I'm fed up with rain too so I cheered myself up by booking a holiday. End of March/beginning of April so  I have to wait for a while but then a week in Jerusalem. No, I haven't been converted to something but I like history and/or nature on my hols and there's both in that part of the world.
