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 Feb 16. 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

Thomas, that B'day card is hilarious.  Getting older can make you a little forgetful.  In my case, a lot.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 6, 2017 at 4:52am

We've had almost zero precipitation for 2.5 months now.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 6, 2017 at 4:50am

Thanks Loren.  

Thanks for the Happy Birthday card Carl.  That car is putting-out some major orange pollution!  It reminds me:  This morning, when I went outside, I saw some white flakes on my garbage bin.  Snow?  Nope.  Flower pedals? Nope.  Ashes from the fires near here:  http://idahostatejournal.com/news/local/firefighters-battle-multipl...

Kathy, a good reason to be proud.  Your granddaughter is certainly brave.  And thanks for the congratulations.

Plinius, that is a perfect cake!  A masterpiece.

Chris, have a wonderful trip and seeing the eclipse. 

I'm sure you saw this map put out by NASA

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 6, 2017 at 1:13am

Kathy, congratulations on having a granddaughter willing to stand for what she believes and not give in to the pressures of a crowd of her peers. 

Comment by Chris on August 6, 2017 at 1:12am

I’m going to visit a friend in Arkansas to view the solar edclipse. He lives about four hours from St. Joseph MO which is right on the center line. http://www.eclipse2017.org/2017/path_through_the_US.htm#Missouri

Does anyone know of a better map? Perhaps Goggle Earth?

I remember someone else said they were going to fly to Branson MO to witness the eclipse. Was that you Ian?  If so perhaps we'll see each other there. I havent firmed up the flights yet and am planning on booking them tommorrow. My friend is looking into the closest place to his house to view the total eclipse.

My friend said his cousin has a large telescope he will bring. I have an inexpensive $300-$400  telescope I plan on bringing incase my friends cousin doesn't make it for some reason.

Sorry I don't read and contribute to this forum too often.

Chris, that's the perfect cake.

I don't where I found this cake, Spud, but I'm sending it with love and congratulations.
