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 - Confessions of an Ex-Muslim (The Thinking Atheist)

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

Yes, Randy.  Luckily I haven't needed to be out and about so I've basically been a hermit in my air-conditioned cave.  Hope you're staying cool as well.

Kathy, the whole world is laughing at us and our politics.  I don't blame them.  It's beyond embarrassing.  What spews out of Trump's mouth is downright horrifying and dangerous.  We have an unstable sociopath who's a chronic liar running for president.  And that's not hyperbole!

I, too, checked out the trailer to Human. Looks intriguing.

Surviving the heat, Carl?

Enjoy yourself watchng it, Carl!

I just read a cute article from *The Guardian* dated today. People had a good time poking fun at the size of Trumps hand by comparing their own hand to a brass imprint of Trumps. The cast hangs at Madam Tussaud's in NYC.

Chris, Human looks like a great film.  I watched the trailer and saw that the whole movie is available on YouTube. I'll check it out.  Thanks for the recommendation!

Another good reason to boycott Albertson's.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 3, 2016 at 3:49am

Spud, I boycott Albertson's because their pharmacists are allowed to override the prescription of a doctor and deny access to the morning after pill. 

If a check-out person does not believe in contraception, does that person have a right to refuse birth control pills or condoms to a customer? Why should it be different about the morning after pill?

The pharmacist has a right not to fill a prescription and customers have a right to boycott the store.

More or less by accident I got a DVD - it turned out to be a wonderful film, the best I've seen in years. It brings you face to face with dozens of people and makes you feel connected. It's also stunningly beautiful. If you can find it, don't miss it! There's a good trailer in this link, and fantastic pictures.

Joan, I just noticed you said your family boycotts Albertson's as well as WalMart.  I know why you boycott WalMart, but I'd be interested to know why Albetson's.  My main reason for not shopping there is the high prices, but I'm sure that's not your main reason.

I unsuccessfully looked for Kingsville, Urgary, Tuva.

I did, however, find TuvaRussia Arctic Throat Singing. I hope you enjoy a bit of social tradition.
