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.

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Thanks all. I missed everyone.

Great, CARL! You ARE on a ROLL (as opposed to role!).

K.H., I was wondering where you were.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 10, 2014 at 8:51pm
K.H. Ky, I had umbilical hernia surgery.

Glad you're back on the air with us. I hate not having the interwebs service. One month is a long time to go without!
Comment by Joan Denoo on December 10, 2014 at 8:13pm

This is good news, Carl. You are on a role. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 10, 2014 at 7:48pm

Great news, Carl. Keep up the good recuperation!

Comment by k.h. ky on December 10, 2014 at 7:35pm

Careful with the ambien.  But I'm sure you know that.

Comment by k.h. ky on December 10, 2014 at 7:34pm

Carl, I've been without service for a month. Glad your surgery went well, whatever it was,and wish you all the best.  ky

Hello my friends. Just checking in. My surgery went well without any problems. I had an excellent group of doctors and nurses who took great care of me. I'm now recuperating with my pain pills and ambien.....and no heavy lifting for four to six weeks. All is going as well as can be expected. Thanks for all your well-wishes.

Eager to hear how the operation went, Carl. Positive vibes sent your way.
