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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Felaine, just type into your search engine whatever music you want to hear and it will pop up like magic. i.e. 

"1920s music". I opened this at random and found

@Chris in your honor, a magnificent bridge and tunnel, built with Dutch and Korean cooperation in Korea.

Ah, the memories: Nancy, Joanie, and especially, Ernie. Thanks for sharing the tribute to Mr. Cub, Carl. I'm pulling out my 50's baseball card collection searching for him.

And, Carl, your assessment of today's "talent" hit the bullseye. Yuck.

Oh, wow!  I haven't listened to Nancy Wilson in Years!  Back in the '60s, I played her LPs and Joanie Sommers ALL the time.  Don't have an LP player anymore, and no $$ to replace my music with CDs....yet. 

Two more months, and I will have paid off the MasterCard I maxed out in 2009.....my laminectomy and fusion, plus a terminally ill kitteh.  The first thing I think I'll do is have my hair cut!

Sk8eycat, here's a little dose of classiness for you.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 24, 2015 at 11:57pm

Sk8eycat, we are living in the era of Kim Kardashian, Jersey Shore, Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, Snooki, Lady Gaga, and "reality" television, etc.  Do you expect there to be an ounce of decorum and talent?  The entertainment bar as been set so low that the dumbed-down audiences of today would clap and cheer the passing of gas on stage.
