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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

sk8eycat, loved the Willie Wonka. Am stealing it. Hey, at least I'm an honest thief.

Ian, great sheep pic. Made me laugh. Haggis? I've tried it. Couldn't pay me to try it again. In fact, I'd pay NOT to ever eat it  again. Yeeech!

Loved it Steph. Your pics always make me smile.

I know most of us love cats, really any animals. So with that in mind, dogs.

I love that! "You ARE taking me to McDonald's!"

Some of the dog and cat pictures are too funny...I'm impressed that you are so clever, Steph! I wish I could come up with such funny captions :)

Ian, I love sheep and feel bad for the one that comes in last :/ No offense but haggis is not very appetizing lol

What animal has a prick half-way up its back? A police horse.

Comment by sk8eycat on August 14, 2012 at 1:22pm

Ian, my first thought when I saw that horse was of an auditorium full of evangelists singing and waving their arms at the sky...trying to get their imaginary friend's attention.

Tara: Yes! I was expecting the damn thing to collapse, too. 

I haven't been on a "thrill ride" of any sort since 1961 when I stupidly let some friends tallk me into going on a classic wooden roller-coaster three times in a row, switching seats each time. (The front one was the worst.)

I don't even like riding in those giant toothpaste tubes called airliners.  I do like flying in a small plane; if the engine quits, it can usually glide till it either re-starts, or lands in a field...or a freeway.

My preferred mode of travel is by rail...I like to see the countryside rolling by, and I LOVE sleeper cars if it's a long trip, and I can afford the extra fare.  (Practically never.)

@sk8eycat: When it started twisting, I thought for sure it was malfunctioning or something.  Nooooo thank you to that crazy business.  Watching is enough to make me cry on the inside.  >./span>
