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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 3. 2 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

Tyler County Emergency Management

August 30 at 5:30pm

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has advised the Tyler County office of Emergency Management that the flood gates were opened to 100 feet at 3:00 pm CSDST. River levels will rise to near seventy nine feet. With additional rain fall accumulations, a potential elevation could reach near eighty two feet. All residents living in Mt. Neches, Barlow Lake Estates, Works Bluff on CR 4415, Sheffield Ferry and Bottom Loop-CR 4700 who have not already evacuated must do so immediately. Anyone who chooses to not heed this directive cannont expect to be rescued and should write their social security numbers in permanent marker on their arm so their bodies can be identified. The loss of life and property is certain.


Fake news took a back seat to reality for once.

Good to meet you too Thomas. I'm in Williams Lake, the middle of BC called the Cariboo.

Hahahaha....religious & porn.....

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 5:48pm

 Hi Patricia,

 Nice to meet you.

My wife is Canadian and all her relatives live in and around Toronto, Ontario.

Three people can't link to NG. I have never subscribed to NG yet I get the link...hummm maybe the link is cross connected in with my neighbor? Maybe this is why I also get connected to a porn site... as far as I know... most of the neighbors here are religious....

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 4:30pm

I can't do the NG either, Thomas, & tis link just says error.

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 3:45pm

... Lets hope you can link onto this article about religion and children...

 I have felt this might be the case with children and religion but I didn't rely on my feelings because of my bias. Some members here probably already seen this but just in case. I wish there were more studies of this nature and hope, once again, science will prove religion wrong again.

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 3:13pm

...I do not understand why I get the article when I am not a subscriber to National Geo...... I use Duck Duck Go to get the article.....

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 1, 2017 at 3:10pm

Joan and Idaho,

Try "Good Gas, Bad Gas National Geographic" in your search box. You're bound to get several hits......

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 1, 2017 at 2:54pm

I couldn't read that National Geographic article either, without subscribing.

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:27pm

Yes, Colorado has has its fires too.

You have ankle problems?

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 2:26pm

With our health issues, we really can't think too far ahead. We want to stay in the house as long as we can look after it. I need help with housekeeping & pay someone to come in every 2 weeks to clean the big stuff. Rick has purchased a riding mower for the lawns.

I need hip replacement so can't walk until that gets done.....whenever that may be. I have to have the surgery in Prince George, but as that was such a big fire evacuee center, who knows how long it will be until I get the call? All our hospital patients were sent there, & are just coming back now.
