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.

Randy, on dealing with dish network. Two of my wins. I needed a ten year old remote replaced. Dish assured me they would be happy to replace it. For fifteen dollars. I told them they could replace it for free or I would change service providers that I wasn't paying them a nickel. The service rep said they would wave the fee and I would only have to pay ten dollars shipping. I said 'either replace it or don't but, again, I'm not paying you a nickel'. They shipped it at no charge.
Two months later the inside receiver went out. The dish service provider offered to replace it for only two hundred and fifty dollars. Plus shipping. I told them exactly the same thing. Either do it or don't but I'm not paying you anything! They shipped it. With a prepaid mailing label to return the old one.
And it wasn't an idle threat. They charge far to much in the first place. And they are responsible for worn out equipment.
I would have changed providers in an instant if they tried to charge me.

Those are some really great nativities.  I liked “When from the East, the Raptors came…”   Just a carpet of raptors.  lol

I own the Halloween decoration of the ghost holding the pumpkin and the skull shown in one of the photos.  It lights up my living room every October!

Kathy, yes, that's a great victory won at Standing Rock.

I thought the dogs were adorable, but liked several.  The Godzilla-eats-Baby-Jesus or the naked guys would be great in the front yard.

The Jim Beam/Corona gets my vote.

Carl, cool menorah!  How about some nice Nativity Scenes?

Standing Rock won. At least temporarily. This is the best news I've heard all year.

If I was Jewish and practicing religion, this would be my go-to Hanukkah menorah.

It's shocking how politics are lurching further to the right and how nationalists are gaining ground. In Britain there's been a campaign to bring back the 'golliwog' that used to be a trademark of a brand of jam.

Of course, and it's not the children who protest, but their parents...
