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

"Miracle Technology" Isn't Needed to Stop Climate Change

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 9, 2016 at 10:57pm

I agree Carl. The most irritating thing about the robocalls is you can't tell them to fuck themselves.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 9, 2016 at 10:47pm

Our election primary in Illinois is this coming Tues. March 15.  I can't wait for it to be over.  I'm all for being involved in the political process, but the non-stop robocalls from politicians has been akin to telephone harassment. 

When the "Do Not Call" lists were started years ago I didn't have a problem with political calls being exempt.  I figured they were an important communication tool in the political process.  I've completely changed my mind.  There's no reason a person should be subjected to such an annoyance in their own home. 

Times have changed.  We can obtain our political information on the internet.  Using telephones for political communication has gone the way of the punch-card and hanging chads.

Thank you Carl!

To all you wonderful women here...you truly are inspiring. 

Thank you.

Chris, one of the wonderful benefits of corresponding with people around the world is learning about where they live.  Chicago isn't a natural magnolia area either because we're too far north.  Of course they flourish in the Southern US states.  

We're lucky to have several flower and plant conservatories and botanical gardens here in and around Chicago.  I love walking through the large tropical palm and plant rooms during the winter.

100% agreed, Randy and Bertold.  There's nothing positive to be said about corporate "news reporting" and media outlets.  It's all just deplorable. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 8, 2016 at 8:24am

I'm with you, Randall. Chuck Todd is another waste of airtime.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 8, 2016 at 7:44am
Am I the only one that can't stand Chris Mathews of MSNBC? Nor Joe Whatshisname on "Morning Joe". I hate interrupters and know-it-alls. Don't like Wolf Blitzer, either (CNN).

The snow was only for a few hours, then it became sunny and warm - some 10 degrees Centigrade.

We have lots of magnolias, Carl, but not in the wild, only in parks and gardens. And you might make VERY long lists from what I don't know about Chicago....
