Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

I found that everyones body isn't symetrical, what I mean by that is everyone has a leg and other body parts that's larger than the other half which can throw the body out of alignment which results in back and knee problems.  Orthopedic shoes often help.

I read about a guy whos legs were two inches different in length.

He had orthepedic shoes made to compensate for the diffenrence for is his leg length.  The article said this back, knee and chronic pain went away.

Some solutions should be simple. Not that all are.

Yes, Plinius, I think the soft type of exercise works better, at least for me. I am not a spring chicken and can't do the more strenuous exercises. 

Comment by Plinius on November 3, 2017 at 4:36am

Thanks  Chris & Joan, I could try that! Bad knees have a bad influence on the rest of the body, so I was trying to find an exercise program.

Sit and Be Fit by Mary Ann Wilson is a Spokane woman and the studio is KSPS, public TV very near my home in Spokane. She started out years ago with a timid voice and looking as though she were uncomfortable with the project. Her program was so successful, and other stations picked it up. The people of Spokane feels great pride in the accomplishments of this woman and faithfully follow her.

Thanks Chris, I have seen those.

Patricia,

The following links on YouTube to Sit and Be Fit by Mary Ann Wilson is available on YouTube.   https://www.youtube.com/user/SitandBeFitTVSHOW

Doing some of the excercises she recommends may help you gain strength and help you recover in the long term.

The Orange One is genuinely unlikable, regardless of age, race, religion, occupation, 

* Neocons hate him because he has upset their little applecart,

* Left hates him for his alleged xenophobia, Islamophobia, and other high crimes, such as being a successful businessman.

* Sensible Center hates him because of his unvarnished, unrehearsed resemblance to ordinary Americans (setting aside his possession of several billion dollars in assets).

I do not like him because he is unreliable, undependable, dishonest, exploitive, manipulative, selfish, narcissistic, paranoid, childish, egoistical, arrogant, megalomaniacal, pompous, self-indulgent, --- I am getting tired of typing, you add your words to describe tRump!

Yes, Spud, the great majority of us cannot stand that guy! They will find the odd one to interview on the news who claim they like him, but they are the ones who seem to act like a sackful of hammers.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 2, 2017 at 10:25am

Patricia, I like that comment about the orange idiot.  Do most people in Canada dislike him?

Comment by Patricia on November 1, 2017 at 6:09pm

Well your kids were kids & we expect them to do things like that until they outgrow it.

All your words about that creep are all right on.

I got a laugh in hospital.....The aides came along to give me a bed bath, along with the comment about getting the iodine washed off my right side, saying they didn't want any resemblance between me & that orange idiot in the US.
