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

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

Flowers.. I have a rosemary on my terrace - it's supposed to flower in March - but it started to flower in november and will probably keep it up for some months. 

I hope the SAD therapy helps, Ian!

Chris, I haven't seen flowers in DK yet. I think Spring tends to arrive 2-3 weeks earlier in NL. Are you experiencing the same cold spell we are? Temperatures are below freezing night and day at the moment although the weekend is predicted to be milder. I've read that this has been Europe's darkest Winter, measured in hours of sunshine since records began, even though it hasn't been cold. I've been using my SAD therapy light every morning.

Its a start, but not enough, & of course we don't know how much snow the forests have gotten.

It is nice to see the flowers starting but we have to wait for another couple of months yet.

Comment by Plinius on February 5, 2018 at 1:26pm

Yes, not very unusual these years. We'll get a week of nightfrost now. but our winters are wet, rainy with temperatures of some 10 degrees. But I'm glad you got a good load of snow!

Comment by Patricia on February 5, 2018 at 1:16pm

Flowers already, Plinius?

Spud, thanks for that information, it is important to know the history of utility companies and hold them accountable for health problems. 

We owe Erin Brockovich for vigilance and persistence in ferreting out facts to support claims. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 5, 2018 at 8:10am

PG&E is also the company that killed people by letting hexavalent chromium get into the water supply and telling them it wouldn't hurt them.  Erin Brockovich found the evidence necessary to get a judge to fine them $668 million.

Just went out and saw the first narcissus in flower...

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 5, 2018 at 1:17am

Winds caused PG&E power lines to throw sparks destroying 6,200 homes and claiming 40 lives, according to investigations by Cal Fire and the state Public Utilities Commission. 

More than 100 lawsuits filed by displaced residents are pending before a San Francisco judge. They claim the utility failed to maintain and repair its power lines and prepare for the kind of high winds that were forecast and arrived that night.

Insurance claims from the Northern California fires have grown to $10 billion, with the largest share of losses in Sonoma County, where 5,130 homes burned and 24 people were killed.

She, her husband, & even their sons have all helped us out. We're the seniors on the street & I think that's part of the reason. Rick has such a bad heart, & her husband has also had some issues with his.

That's her white truck down the street. Their house is just this side of the yellow one.
