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

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)

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

The wanted her to skip third grade but she didn't want to leave her friends and we decided that was for the best. The algebra class she's starting is advanced. It's a class that is for the eleventh grade. The rest of them​ are for tenth graders. In KY if you score high they place you in the advanced classes. In third grade she was taking two fourth grade classes.
Are your kids not placed back test scores??

 Your gdaughter Paige some people might attribute her to being an Indigo Child :

  Not worth serious consideration but a fun read.

  My younger son (10 years old) was tested for language and intelligence at John Hopkins in Baltimore. Just in the interviewing him the doctor recognized him to be intelligent beyond his age and school level. After his test, his scores were high enough that the doctor wanted him in his program ( I dunno what program it is... I dunno where the paperwork is) Anyways, I wanted him in it because then the school will be forced to put him in special education (Gifted and Talented)

  We been have telling the school that both our boys are bored in their classes and their grades are always A's. Then they were put in advance math, science and English. They are still getting A's and B's. My older son will start his H.S. this year and he is in advance physics, advance math, and advance social studies. I am not sure yet if both boys are in Gifted Talent program or just advance classes.... I will have to check this Fall.

  Kathy, I don't recall if you said Paige is in any advance classes or in Gifted Talented program. Is she?

Randy, I told you all I was going to have my family pray the clouds away. Lol
Comment by Randall Smith on August 7, 2017 at 6:37am

Kathy, can you use all the powers you have and prevent a cloudy day on August 21st?  Even if it is cloudy, I'll be visiting several state parks to explore plus famous (infamous?) New Harmony, Indiana.

Speaking of being proud of grandchildren, I'm pleased my 7 yr old grandson is "in to" classical music. He listens to it all the time.

Ruth, we are finally getting some rain. In early summer there was to much. Then we didn't get any for a month. Now it's finally raining again.
Comment by kathy: ky on August 7, 2017 at 12:01am
Ian, I just hope she stays with it. She's proven every year that she can outscore all her classmates. On the sixth grade state test she was the only one to score distinguished in every category. On her eighth grade test she outscored 230 classmates by over three hundred points.
I just hope so uses her powers for good and not evil. Lol

Thanks for the links, Carl. Very informative.

Kathy, you might have a new Bell Burnell there.

Idaho Spud. I agree with pleasant memories of rain on the roof. However here in the Phila area we've been getting extreme downpours, yesterday three of them. If you're in a large metal-roofed indoor space like our gym or the grocery store the extreme deluge can be scary. Or to be caught in it. And there's the flooding risk. Our house is susceptible due to the nearby ground being shaped like a funnel - to channel it toward us. Our part of the country is 71% more likely to have heavy rain. To me it's as obvious a symptom of climate destabilization as Europe's "Lucifer" drought and the BC wildfires. I still enjoy the sound of normal rain, though.

It's not compatible with something or other. My gsons explained it but I don't understand. If we had computer signal I could but we don't : (
