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

They told me my name (Christina) meant - belonging to christ. Which made me very angry.

Comment by Daniel W on December 23, 2016 at 12:17pm

Ian, have a great celebration!

Chris and Chris, interesting to have a name that is probably short for Christ, while being Atheist.  The original Hebrew for mine is "God is my judge".  Which is weird because I thought God was everyone's judge.

Christopher (?) - except for the dining room, the walls are smooth.  I'm aiming for that here too.  We use eggshell which I think is similar to semigloss.  Thanks for the ideas.  The stone backsplash also protects from stray splatters.

Carl - whose name means either "Strong man" or "Free man" - this house is my bank-sale house, intended to be where i spend my declining years.  I'm designing and modifying with accessibility and future decline in mind.  I live in the old place for now, which will eventually be sold.  Very lucky to have bought the country place when the housing bust was at bottom and people and banks were dumping their properties.

Meaning of name Kathy - "Pure"

Meaning of Joan - "God is Gracious"

Meaning of Ruth - "Friend, Companion"

Meaning of Grinning Cat - "Pure" or "Cat-like"

Meaning of Randy - Scandinavian / Norman for "Shield" or "Wolf"

Meaning of Ian - Scottish or Gaelic for John, "YAHWEH is gracious" - wow!

Chris, funny. I try to use bruised fruit before it goes bad instead of picking the prettiest pieces.

Other Chris how I'm I going to distinguish between the two of you? I suppose I'll go back to Plinius!
Daniel, I envy your talent and stamina. Taking on such a large project. It's looking good.
Comment by Plinius on December 23, 2016 at 10:59am

You and I have the same first name.

Bertold, lol. I was going to go with cheap ;-)
Chris, maybe survivalist. It's the only one that comes mind at the moment.
Eat that before it gets rotten.

Thanks, I love your choice of translations! I don't fit in the rat-race too, and I feel good about that. I bought our celebratory dinner this morning, a head of endive and two veggie burgers. Other people are already seriously stuffing themselves and some of them will end at at the Emergency Room in the hospital. Funny habits!

For the first time in years, I don't have to work any of the holiday period, so I'm off to the land of my nativity in an hours time. See you again soon.

Frugal seems about the nearest, for a single word. 'Consumption-conscious' or 'consumption-aware' for a phrase. In DK, 'sparsomelig'.

Comment by Chris on December 22, 2016 at 10:01pm


Maybe Frugal.

May I suggest using a stipple roller and  semi gloss paint to finish off your kitchen remodel?

Gloss of course may work better around the sink and oven.
