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

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

Lilac, thanks for the dewy rose and the sympathy.

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

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

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

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.

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.
