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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

'Meester, you want? You buy! Very cheep prize! Special for you' A straightforward 'no' doesn't work and you can experience being followed for a long time or even being grabbed.

Patricia, your spelling looks right. Let's see, "Morocco," Yep! Thanks!. 

Comment by Plinius on January 30, 2018 at 3:08am

It's a beautiful country, Ian, but I can imagine your feelings. Luca and I are thinking twice when deciding on a holiday abroad - that is IF we can afford a holiday after all that's happening. Here the Polish people are a nuisance, they feel they should roar their drunken comments at at any same sex couple.

Isn't it Morocco?

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2018 at 12:46am

Ian, I am sorry your time in Morroco left you with such unhappy memories. I wonder if it was like that 20 or 30 years ago. I fell in love with the people of the Middle East 30 years ago. I wonder if I would have such dreadful memories if I were to go there today? There were a few incidents of unpleasant events, men touching me inappropriately, touching my breasts and gluteus maximus, and I brushed them off as foolish morons. I experienced far worse from U.S. adult men; both exhibited adolescent, juvenile, puerile behaviors. 

Can you describe what you mean by "harassment?"

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2018 at 12:33am

I have no need to be a contrarian, however, I love ham and pineapple pizza!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2018 at 12:30am

Bertold, a significant example of a reality check. violent turbulence, whether in a plane or confronted by uncertainty  > leads to blaming a scapegoat. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2018 at 12:26am

Ian, a very special photo of you during your mountain trip. This is a keeper!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 29, 2018 at 10:52pm

Left out the pic. The mountain trip was the best part.

Never had the desire to visit anyplace like that.
