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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I thought Ning didn't allow the same name to be used by to be used  by multiple members. I wasn't aware that there were two Chris's on this forum.  The Avatar is digstinguishing.

Carl, that's a perfect explanation !

It should be taught in churches.
Comment by Daniel W on December 25, 2016 at 10:50am

Carl, LOL.  He does have that kind of sleazy look in his eyes, doesn't he?

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the "you can call me Ray" and "skeptic on a stick" clips! Good diversions on this Christmas day (spent like any other day).

Everyone hurry and you can catch midnight Xmas mass on pbs. Lol

Thanks Gary.

Daniel I like the more formal version. As I've aged I like my full first name. Maybe because it's what is used most often. Especially in a medical center.
Comment by Daniel W on December 24, 2016 at 8:52pm

GC, I was called the 3-letter shortening of my name until I was about 30.  So many things in life had gone wrong, so when I moved from Indiana to Oregon I deliberately chose the formal name. I believe names have power, not supernatural, but subconscious and relational.  I hated Dan Quayle, Dan Coats, Dan White - who assassinated Moscone and Harvey Milk, and didn't think much of Dan Rather or Dan Akroid.  On the other hand, Daniel Schorr, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Daniel Ellsberg,  have gravitas.  So I embraced what my parents gave me.  I don't mind the Bible character.  The "Dan" on the bible sold his brother into slavery.  "Daniel" was thrown into the Lions den as a punishment for his faithfulness, and survived. 

Well that was too long.

Loren,I love skeptic on a stick!

I liked that. May Krampus continue to give Saturnalia eve gifts.

Comment by kathy: ky on December 24, 2016 at 8:11pm
Carl, I started the tradition of celebrating the winter solstice when my grandkids were very young. It worked out well for us. They opened their gifts on the solstice. So we had plenty of time with them before the Xmas rush of going to visit relatives who lived farther away.
