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.

Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe (Eric Whitacre)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia on Saturday. 3 Replies

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 4. 5 Replies

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 30. 6 Replies

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Thankfully, only one more antibiotic to take ... then back to building normal.

Good to hear from you also, Ruth.  Love the cat gif.  Hope you have a fast recovery.

Sorry for my absence. Only one more antibiotic to take, then my bowels will get back to “normal” for someone with IBS.

It was nice to learn more about your husband, Patricia. Belated congrats.

Love the hugs and kiss LOLcats, booklover and Steph.

Ian, good to hear from you.  We were a bit worried about your absence in light of the recent storm that passed over Northern Europe.  Glad you're well.  Sounds like you had a nice visit.  My mother makes the most delicious ginger cake that she serves with homemade lemon sauce.

Patricia, I was just thinking about Sk8eycat yesterday.  I'm missing her also.

Hello all. Just checking in. Have been in England for a week visiting family. Very nice indeed. Am a couple of pounds wider now. My sister-in-law bakes a great ginger cake. Been to the theatre in London too; Brecht's "The resistable rise of Arturo Ui". Very funny but also scary. Great production that I can recommend.

Hope you are all well.

Carl, a very special way to start my morning, with friends on Hang with Friends, and this sprightly music with Ethel Merman and Judy Garland.

Thanks, Patricia, for forwarding Mindy's photo. I knew it would be a keeper. Thanks for sharing Mindy.

Great picture steph. 

Mindy, your comment didn't come through on my wall, and I tried using the address used in my email box

I have a hunch it was a keeper.

Wow!  Your husband must be skin and bone.  I thought I was skinny when I was young, but he beat me by a long ways.

I weighed 145 lbs in my 20s, but I was only 5' 9".

He is a good-looking guy.
