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 day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Dan's a neat fella, Randall, utterly approachable, no pretense, no BS, just a regular guy ... who plays a MEAN piano!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 30, 2015 at 8:05am

Loren, that's great. Nothing like finding a "soulmate". I'm envious.

Looks like we're going to have a warmup--finally! Maybe I can get some golf and gardening in before I go on my "vacation" to Europe.

I see you have almost no wind, but there's a big curl near Vancouver Island. Am I right?

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 4:00am

That the usual pattern here, our weather comes from Iceland and/or the Azores (the islands under the big curl on the Atlantic). Storm tomorrow, I just read - 9 or 10 Beaufort.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 30, 2015 at 3:53am

It is interesting how that two wind patterns came together, one from the north, the other from the south. I could imagine some high winds and tides.  

Comment by Plinius on March 30, 2015 at 2:00am

It's about 6 or 7 bft here, that means the wind whistles, growls and pushes against the windows. Flags are slowly unravelling at the edges and the seagulls make a game of sailing without moving a wing. But it's not an unusually strong wind for this area, unusual is over 9 bft.

@Chris, the animated wind map looks severe in your area.

Is it as windy in fact as it looks on the map? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 5:58pm

I meant to send you the map

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 5:54pm

Chris, I have been watching the wind map and it looks like two weather systems converge over your part of northern Europe. One comes from the south, the other from the north. 

Can you describe how you experience the wind at your place today? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 12:19pm

OOPPSS I forgot the mormons in Restriction and punishment with regard to sexuality. That seems to be a big issue for former members.
