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.

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

Just been told by my daughter that she's getting married. They haven't set a date yet but her bloke went down on one knee and produced a ring Saturday evening. How nice!

Our temps dropped almost thirty degrees in about four hours last night. The rain turned into about an inch of snow. It's a chilly 18° out now.

Ruth, you should call the hospital and find out. I don't remember the before instructions or if I was given any. You could find it on google too.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 8, 2016 at 6:43pm

I haven't even been given any instructions yet, and it's now the weekend before. About bleeding from the artery, I'm taking 3 g of fish oil/day and some e as well. Nobody has suggested I stop. Will they say the night before the operation that I shouldn't take fish oil or e for a week before the procedure? Do you remember your instructions? My time machine is broken.

Ruth, l don't believe it was mentioned to me either until the day of. The major risk, as I understood it, was bleeding from the artery in the groin area where the tiny puncture is made. That was several years ago and may be different now.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 7, 2016 at 9:54pm

Nobody mentioned that to me.

Comment by kathy: ky on January 7, 2016 at 8:28pm
Thanks everyone but I'm fine. Just going through the early winter yuks. Lots of rain, can't get out in the yard...but I drove to bowling green sun and saw my grandson and his (my foster) dog. It was a rare sunny day.

Ruth, the heart cath isn't bad. Laying flat on your back with the pressure weight eight hours after it's done is the worst of it. That's the way mine was anyway.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 7, 2016 at 1:21pm

Thanks, k.h. ky, Joan, Plinius, and Ian. I'm scheduled for Tues, unless my health fails to improve. :)

I miss long daylight hours too.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 7, 2016 at 8:35am

I hope you pick up soon, Ruth and Kathy. The days are getting longer now.

Yes, Joan we haven't managed our world very well. Short-term monetary gain has trumped common sense time and time again.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2016 at 3:36am

Ruth, I am sorry to learn of your health problems. A heart cath sounds like some serious things going on, complicated by other variables. My hope is that you and Kathy get your vigor back soon.
