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.

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

Your flag is bright!  Hard to forget.

I couldn't picture how that looked until I checked with Wikipedia.

My cities' Flag was voted the ugliest in the USA, but there are some other cities that I would rate higher (lower?), like Grand Rapids MI, which looks like Ms. Pac-Man after a bender. http://gizmodo.com/are-these-the-ugliest-city-flags-on-earth-172826...

It could be several months, perhaps even a couple of years before I was discovered.  I don't interact with any of my used-to-be Mormon friends, and there's very tittle interaction with my Mormon family anymore.  

Theres only one neighbor that I talk to, and not often at that.  It would take them several months to wonder.  In the summer, their first clue would be the plants in my garden dying.  If it was in the winter, they wouldn't become concerned until early summer.

My mailbox is huge and can't be looked in, so it would be several months before the mailman would experience a clogged box.

Then you'd better organize a fixed point in your day for a short contact so someone can press alarm buttons when you don't react.

I recently read about a woman who had died in her home in Michigan, but found 5 years after the fact! She had no family or friends evidently. Neighbors mowed her lawn (thinking she was job-related traveling). All her bills and deposits were done automatically. She was not missed.

I was thinking that could be me--maybe not for 5 years, but several months. In the winter, I often hunker down and could possibly disappear from radar. If I slipped in the bathtub and went into a coma, who would know? How long would it take to be discovered? Fortunately, I have a sister and daughter nearby that might wonder where I was. But, it is a concern for me.

I was thinking of Luara and Steph as well as Pat.

Carl, that video was fun--very entertaining! Jimmy was quite talented.

Joan, in my genealogy work, tracing Smith ancestors has been a real challenge. Since my 3rd great grandfather came from Germany, I'm thinking he may have been a Schmidt (sp?) of some sort. He's where the line ends.
