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

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

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

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Cleveland has been a bit weird here, weather-wise.  A couple days ago, we got 8-10 inches of snow, accompanied by temps in the teens to single digits.  This morning it is currently 30°F with a predicted high in the 40s and RAIN in the forecast, before the thermometer takes another dump.

Hibernate?  Don't tempt me!

That song's new to me (and quite weird) - thanks!

You've probably heard this already, beautiful singing!

No warm front here in the forecast.

Goodnight, Ruth. Goodnight, all. :)

We're likely to "hibernate" till that warm front too.

Good night all!

Warm front coming through with highs mid 60s tomorrow. Then it's going to drop 40° for a high temp of 17 on Sunday :(

Kathy, we've had snow here and it's been VERY cold.  It's snowing again right now and the extreme cold temperatures will continue through the weekend.  I haven't been out at all.  Luckily I haven't had the need to go anywhere.  I'm just hibernating.  Although in a few days I'll need to have someone take me grocery shopping.  I usually can do that on my own, but not in this weather.  Too cold, too snowy, and too icy.

Hope you're staying warm.  :)

Carl are you snowed in yet?
We're supposed to get freezing rain by sun

Joan, the thumbtack video is where he bellyflops onto 1500 thumbtacks from a ladder.  Daniel mentioned it and I saw the place you can click on to see it, but I did not click on it.  You can see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eXldURi1I8

Speaking of something I can't stand to watch on TV: 

The ACLU has sued the small community of Knightstown, IN for putting a cross on top of the town's Christmas tree. So, of course, the townspeople are all up in arms (actually, in crosses) protesting the board's decision to take the cross down. It is so maddening to listen to the religious nuts complain. They just don't get it. Worse, the local TV stations make such a big deal out of it. Isn't there more worthy news out there? I'm with Joan.
