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.

Ian, thank goodness. I don't think I could keep up the "no preposition rule for the rest my life. I will dump it unless someone will have a porcupine over it.

sk8eycat It came through! and STUNNING! I can't even imagine how the people in that car felt and the other people in the caravan! Now that is the way to bring home the wildlife! Thanks so much.

Ian, is it correct grammar to end a sentence with a proposition?

Such cats, Steph! Put a big smile on my morning.

The "do not end a sentence with a preposition" rule has little to do with original English grammar. It's an import from Latin and was imposed "from above" at some comparatively late date to poshen things up.

Sk8eycat that is so cute!

Love the lolcat!

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 11, 2012 at 7:31pm

Steph, love the hat on the cat!. Would love to have one.
And the assembled cat sure is more limber than I.

Grinning Cat, Oh dear! Rub it in! Hey, that sounds good:

 "This is the type of arrant pedantry up with which I will not put."

Grinning cat, you sure have a way of making me laugh!

Joan, the "pug" I tried to post wasn't a video...it's a poster.  Kinda gross.  I copied it from an e-mail a friend sent to me....and he must have copied it froom FakeBook.  Anyroad, here it is again (I dug it up from elsewhere)
