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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Carl, I was looking for a phrase to use instead of "I hope", and I like what you said: "my best to you".

I don't like using "I wish", and other such terms anymore because since leaving religion, I don't really wish anymore, but have a hard time thinking of what to substitute for them.

I hope is not as bad as I wish, but still sounds a little too much like daydreaming.  Maybe I'm wrong.

Chris, I am sorry to learn of your continuing problems with your knees, walking, and climbing stairs. You are wise to see an orthopedic specialist. Hopefully, they will find a remedy for you. 

If I remember correctly, you have an elevator to your apartment. Do you have to use a stairway to climb to get to your garden?

Life seems to offer more stairs as we get older than when we were youngsters.

Pinius....Lets hope you do not have kneasles....crossing my fingers for you....

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 20, 2017 at 4:39pm

Chris, my best to you for you medical appointment.  I know all too well the difficulties of stairs...and also being out of balance when I walk.  Do you have many stairs to get into your home?  I'm quite lucky I don't have any in my current location.  Any future apartments of mine will have to have an elevator.

I hope to hear good news about your knees Plinius.

Comment by Plinius on January 20, 2017 at 2:21pm

At last I made an appointment at an orthopedic clinic, high time I get some help with my poor knees. Walking is difficult, climbing stairs more difficult.... you all know stories like that. So I can sit back, wait for the appointment and allow them to help me.

Thanks for the information about Nat Geo Joan.

I havent seen the GIZMODO web site before.

Some say canabinoids are part of the human brain.

Alcohol, as I understand it was historically used because water wasn't safe to drink.  W.C. Fields said many things about the advantages of drinking alcohol over water including: "Fish f*ck in it."

Hopefully National Geographic won't turn into something like TLC (The Learning Channel).

Sister Wives, Kate Plus 8, Little People, Big Wrold, Paranormal Lockdown, Say Yes to the Dress, My 600-LB Life. and etcetera.

Why is it called "The Learning Channel?"

Comment by Randall Smith on January 19, 2017 at 7:21am
WOW! What a great "welcoming back" response--totally unexpected! Thank you. To answer Kathy's query, I stayed overnight in Hopkinsville where it rained a little. But otherwise, I dodged it all and had dry pavement 99% of the way.
