Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…Continue

I'm due to take early retirement in December and I'm looking forward to it. It will mean a cut in income but there are so many good things money can't buy. Also, I am beginning to have constant discomfort in my fingers and forearms from working so it's time to stop.

They REALLY wanted to get rid of older employees, but the packages following Rick's were lower, so he's glad he took it when he did.

Shame too as he loved his job until Telus changed the company & made it an unpleasant place to work. Two of Rick's brothers worked there too, so he heard the stories even after he was out.

Just a little bit more.  I'm jealous.

Rick got $60,000.

Comment by Idaho Spud on June 7, 2019 at 1:58pm

I managed to put-up with the company I worked for until they offered me $20000 to retire.  I jumped at it, at the age of 62.

BC Tel & Telus were merging in 1999, & they offered buy out packages for anyone 55 & older, & who had company time in at 25 years, could take the package. Rick had just reached his 25 years, & age 55, so due to the stroke ruining his peripheral vision, & preventing the driving part of the job, he decided to take it. His partner at work always had to do the test driving on the vehicles after the repair jobs were done.

Patricia, I also retired at 55 (1998 from teaching). The school offered "early retirement", and I jumped at it. Two years later, my semi-wealthy second wife and I divorced, which made me second guess my decision to retire. Very costly! Otherwise, I, too, have never regretted it.
