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.

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

I like squirrels. Had one cuss me out a couple months ago, though. Walked up on him in the yard by surprise. Startled us both. He ran for the tree, stopped when he got there, stood up and angrily chittered at me. Kinda lunged my way a couple times. Lasted about 20 sec or so. Turned his back on me, flicked his tail, and disappeared up the tree. I could only do one thing. I laughed my ass off. Still remembering and chuckling about it to this day. LOL! :)

AWWW Tony - love those cute puppies.

You are on a roll today with all your wonderful posts.

Hey Joan - don't be upset. I don't think most of us saw the picture. But, no worries. We are all friends here. : )

Great cat, Steph. Next time I get overwhelmed, will have to give that outfit a whirl.

And now, time to ratchet the cuteness level to 11 (or treacly, as it strikes you).

Tony, as usual, you photos and music start me off with a happy, toe tapping attitude. The Finnish winter scene is so lovely; glad I am not out in snow. I like my cozy room with your beautiful photos coming right to my fingertips. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 18, 2012 at 5:47pm

Melinda, I am so glad you didn't see it and hopefully no one else did. I am ashamed of my carelessness and do not want to repeat that ever again. Thanks for understanding. 

Your two white cats eating together delights me. They seem perfectly satisfied with the eating arrangement.

Steph! What a wonderful photo of an overwhelmed cat! My sympathies to him/her/it.
