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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller on Thursday. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

Thanks Randy.

Hahahaha.....those are hilarious, Thomas!!!! I'm keeping those!

In the meantime while waiting, the other one went, so walking is almost impossible & pain is terrible 90% of the time.

I tried cannabis oil, & it worked at first, but not now, & I can't take prescription narcotics.

Tylenol is it, but doesn't work all that well, but need to take something!

Joan, going to Colorado for 6 months? Tell us more.

Patricia, how have we gone without you for so long?!! Love having you back. Good luck with hip replacement.

Comment by Plinius on September 2, 2017 at 3:47am

So they don't know how to get through the work - understandable, with all the extra patients, but bad news for you!

Luca has almost the same problem with the gender clinic, the waiting list is forty weeks now and calling gets you only an answering machine...

Comment by Patricia on September 2, 2017 at 1:02am

Yes, I called the surgeon's office & got told the lists were all up to the hospital.

I called the hospital & got a recording, no real person.

When we were in Prince George during the evac, my son took me directly to the hospital to ask, & they couldn't tell me anything there, & all they got when they called admitting, was the recording as well.


Comment by Plinius on September 2, 2017 at 12:20am

Have you tried to phone them, Patricia? Although it's almost certain the waiting list has become longer because of their extra work.

I can't open all the links but it's a ghastly scenario that emerges from the messages and warnings. 

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 9:25pm

I do too Ruth. I just wish I knew when. I'm 7 months into my 3 to 6 month wait time.

Sometimes it takes blunt to get through to some people!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on September 1, 2017 at 8:13pm

I hope your hip replacement goes well, Particia.

Plain speaking from  a government entity.

Tyler County Emergency Management

August 30 at 5:30pm

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has advised the Tyler County office of Emergency Management that the flood gates were opened to 100 feet at 3:00 pm CSDST. River levels will rise to near seventy nine feet. With additional rain fall accumulations, a potential elevation could reach near eighty two feet. All residents living in Mt. Neches, Barlow Lake Estates, Works Bluff on CR 4415, Sheffield Ferry and Bottom Loop-CR 4700 who have not already evacuated must do so immediately. Anyone who chooses to not heed this directive cannont expect to be rescued and should write their social security numbers in permanent marker on their arm so their bodies can be identified. The loss of life and property is certain.


Fake news took a back seat to reality for once.

Good to meet you too Thomas. I'm in Williams Lake, the middle of BC called the Cariboo.

Hahahaha....religious & porn.....
