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.

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Hi booklover, The cat is fine!  Hopefully soon I can upload pictures of Buddy.  I do not know how yet, but soon!  I can't wait to introduce a lot of the local felines!!  One you have to see to believe!  This cat is the Pit Bull of cats!!  I swear, this cat is on steroids and to make it even worse, it's a Siamese cat!

Ian, I'm sorry to hear that! Whatever happens with your step-mum, it's clear that she has your and your family's love and support.

Comment by Joseph Corder on March 19, 2013 at 2:40pm

Hey Chris Breman, the cats outside playing!  I love the pictures of the cats!  My favorite one is the cat that has a knitted hat on.  It says Please make her stop before she knits again!!  I use a lot of the cat pictures as desktop wallpapers!  I also liked the one where the cat is pointing at a laptop comp. and it says Feed me now or this internets thing dies!!

Just had a phone call from England. My step-mum has been rushed to hospital, "very poorly", to be put on a ventilator. I may be booking a flight very soon. That's both mums going downhill in a short space of time.

Melinda, that cat is DEMONIC! Steph, yours is so superior/scornful in its expression.

Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2013 at 11:44am

I always start to look with suspicion and distrust at people when they don't freak out when an animal is in danger - so thank you, Joseph Corder, I'm happy you care. And glad your cat is all right!

Joan, there's not much I can add that hasn't already been said by others:  you're very much appreciated here and fondly thought of.  Consider me as one more person in the chorus.  

I, too, love the pictures of the Auroras.  That has got to be breathtaking to witness in person.  How lucky we are that we're intelligent enough to comprehend and appreciate the endless beauty and wonders that accompany our existence.

Yeah - isn't that the cutest face ever? I love it!!

Just makes your day. : ) Thanks booklover.
