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 yesterday. 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

Have fun Melinda.

Where did the top row of "buttons" go?

Ian, I had a wonderful dentist for 45 years (since I was in high school), but have been going through hell since he retired 10 years ago. He would always stop working, inject more "stuff," and wait for it to take effect before continuing.

This one did knock $50 off the bill....

Joan that is a cute photo - love all the posts - trying to read back through and get all caught up.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 8, 2013 at 10:35am

Joan, that's funny.  "Did you lose a cat?"

Comment by Steph S. on March 8, 2013 at 10:20am

sorry - so far behind here. Sk8eycat I hope you are feeling better after the dental work.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 8, 2013 at 3:48am

I've got behind, so this is a bit belated.

Sympathies, Felaine. I went through 3 years suffering and of a lot of money thanks to an incompetent dentist. Dentists and drunk-drivers are the only people who should suffer capital punishment.

Yes, 50 years old is far too young to go. That's tragic.

Great cats all. They've put a smile on my face.
