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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I have a Monday AM surgery for carpel tunnel of the left hand and expect to be all wrapped up in bandages for a while. Just warning you that I will be typing with one hand next week. 

Daniel, Experimenting with sourdough is part of the fun; let us know how your AM starter works with the aid of sun. 

Spud, I have used all kinds of homemade starter and each one has a particular taste. I tried potato water, rice water, flour water. All these recipes can be found on the internet. Give some a try. 

The very best starter, by far, was the one I got 55+ years ago when I lived in Alaska. Every once in a while, I get a faint reminder of the smell or taste of that beast! It was just out of this world. Sadly, I let it die when I returned to the "Lower US".

Daniel, I don't remember you ever posting in this group before.  

I'm thinking seriously of trying to make my own sourdough bread for the first time.  I'll bet it tastes better than store bought.

Joan, thank you for posting that silliness. 

I think no way would a media corporation today make a silly sacraligeous movie today.  

Today I forgot to start sourdough starter last night, so I mixed some a while ago and sat it outside, covered, to soak up some heat.  Maybe it will ferment faster.

Chris, I hope you have a very fine day and that Rien has fewer stresses at work. 

Good night; I'm off to bed. See you tomorrow.

Thanks, Ian. It's nice to hear positive environment news.

Ian, you can only live in peace when your enemies allow you to.

Fun stuff and food for thought.
