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

BB you might have to settle for your 666 being 6 decades, 6 years, and 6 months.

Comment by Daniel W on December 19, 2016 at 8:42pm

Like Carl said, happy birthday to all.  And to all, soon, a Solstice promise of hope and renewal.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 19, 2016 at 8:27pm

Happy Birthday to you also, Loren!

In fact, Happy Birthday to everyone who had a birthday this year but were too shy to speak up.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 19, 2016 at 3:34pm

Loren - only 600 more years and we'll be 666.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 19, 2016 at 3:25pm

Best wishes of the day, Ian!

You, too, Bertold?  I just turned 66 this month ... though I don't really FEEL like I'm that old!

Tillykke med fødselsdagen, Ian!

Ian, congrats on another birthday.  Embrace your age!  Be proud and be strong.  Now you can tell the young how spoiled and fortunate they are, and all about how you had to struggle in your day  :They will really be interested and excited, and bring all of their friends around to hear more  :-)  You can also give unsolicited advice and pass judgement.  And finally, all of these senior discounts

Randy bundle up, but you know that!  I hope that frozen conditions kill off bugs and insect eggs in the soil, so your garden will flourish next year. 

I grew up in a small Mississippi river town.  We used to gather up the family and go to the bay to skate and go ice fishing.  My grandfather, at 80, could skate hearts and grape vine patterns in the ice, and spell our name.  He skated arrows through the hearts.  

I have lots of firewood piled up.  That's something I love about clearing the wood lot in Winter and Spring, the wood dries and warms you during the next winter.  We have lots of trees about to fall down in our woodlot, so there is enough there for year of firewood.

Ian, we should start a chain of geezer salons.  I'll be the first customer.

Happy birthday, Ian. You're still a spring chicken; I'm 66.

Happy birthday Ian . Things don't change. Age is just a number.
