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 on Saturday. 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

Bertold,

Isn't this exactly the same mentality of the Republicans if they succeed in repeal/replace  Affordable Care Act for 10 million Americans?

From the What a Wonderful World Department:

Adisturbing video has surfaced of teens in Florida laughing at a disabled man drowning in a retention pond.

The five teens can be heard mocking Jamel Dunn, 32, as he screams begging for help. The ages 14 to 16-year-olds watch him struggle and ultimately fall under the water. When Dunn doesn’t resurface the teens continue to joke about him, The New York Daily News reported via Florida Today.

“Oh, he just died” one can be heard saying on the video. The group then laughs.

No one called 911 nor did they rush to help.

Raw Story

These kids must have been raised by atheists, right?

It Is funny, but telemarketeering is a crappy job. The shopping centre here is full of colporteurs, etc. They ask time to talk to me, and I tell them 5 seconds. After 5 seconds I wish them a good day and go on. They look so surprised then!

Kathy,

That was so funny! Some people use a whistle to blow into the speaker. It hurt the callers ears and they don't call back.

On a funnier note I've been annoyed by calls from telemarketers Friday a company we recently did business with. When I answer the phone they start talking so fast I can't interrupt them. When it happened again this morning I tried to interrupt​ all through her opening She wouldn't shut up until she asked me if I was interested?
I asked her if she was a goddamn, fucked, idiot and she hung up on me. Lol. That made my day to finally get one to actually hang up : )

Joan, Congress and Senate can afford it. They tried to cram their crappy insurance plan on us while they continued to get nothing but the best. McConnell made a remark years ago that his family was almost ruined by his medical bills when he had polio as a child. Now that he's worth over 25 million he doesn't give a damn about people who are facing the same problems he and his family went through. McConnell went to warm springs,on the March of Dimes money, now he's voted to cut their funding. What an ungrateful bastard. I really detest him.

Who Can Afford McCain’s Surgery?

"Without insurance, the surgery would cost the patient around $100,000.

"An estimated 29 million American residents are currently uninsured, 845,000 of whom live in Arizona. The Congressional Budget Office had projected that an additional 22 million Americans would lose their health insurance over the next decade under the Senate Republicans’ initial health care legislation. The release of a new CBO estimate of the Senate GOP’s latest draft has been postponed indefinitely."

Joan,

We used to have a cat just like the white on in the pix. Her name was Ivory, left eye blue and the right eye was green.... she was also deaf.

Randy, phones don't make very good manure for the bean field, do they! I'd say that you chose a dumb option. What options did you have? 

Comment by Randall Smith on July 15, 2017 at 7:39am

Ian, I hope the jazz is to your liking. I'm rather picky about what jazz I enjoy listening to. Have fun!

While taking my usual after supper walk last night, I came across a smashed "smart phone" (or whatever). I picked it up to take home to throw in the trash. Then, it rang! And beeped. Loud. I thought this won't do, ringing in my house. So, after pondering what to do with it, I tossed it several rows into the bean field. Big mistake! 3 minutes later, a young woman drove and stopped by me asking if I'd seen a phone. After telling her what I'd done, she said she had to find it because it had important stuff on it. (Evidently, her boyfriend set the phone on the trunk and it fell off later as she drove down the road.)

She hunted for over an hour using another phone to call for it (which she was doing when it rang on me). I don't know if she ever retrieved it. I hope so.The episode has haunted me. I feel so guilty tossing it away like I did.
