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

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

New computers are always tedious, until everything's just right. Hubby's a pro and it still takes him almost two weeks until he gets every detail redone when I get a replacement. I wish you well, Plinius.

Great LOL, Flying Atheist!

Randall, I don't envy your foot of snow. At 9:12 PM, here - just north of Philly - it's 63°F. BTW, Arctic Sea Ice has been melting already since Feb 9th. When the wavy jet stream sends equatorial warmth to the North Pole it also sends North Pole cold straight down to you.

Comment by Plinius on February 24, 2016 at 8:39am

Take care with that snow, Randall!

Comment by Ian Mason on February 24, 2016 at 8:00am

What a pleasant experience, Chris. Hope that went some way to making up for bad ones.

Hope you survive the snow, Randall. Make the best of it with hot chocolate or mulled wine according to taste.

Carl, that pic is HILARIOUS!  Inner peace for the "Me" generation!  HAR!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 24, 2016 at 7:39am

I'm currently in the midst of a snow storm with blizzard warnings in counties immediately to the west of me. Might get a foot of snow by tomorrow. Then, the day after that, I'm planning to drive south to Florida--or should I say "was planning". I might not be able to get out of my driveway! Great timing. Bummer.

Thanks for the kind wishes, and I love that picture, Carl, it´s just right! Tomorrow I get some help for the pc, so perhaps I,ll be able to mail again. I lost the teaching material I wrote in the last half year, that´s what you get if you forget about backups..

Yes Joan, our household consists of Rien, Chris, Dido and Luna.

One thing that also happened this week, was a very pleasant experience. The VCR broke down and we found one on internet offered for free. When the owner found out that we travel by public transport he wouldn´t hear of us going there to pick the thing up, but he brought it by car, came in for coffee and enjoyed himself enormously telling long stories. So kind!

Good luck, Chris. I don't know if it's a subjective feeling with no rational basis (probably) but problems do seen to come in swarms.

Glad to hear that the rest of you are being taken care of by your support teams. Love the pic, Carl.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 23, 2016 at 12:11pm

Carl, what a perfect photo for Chris!

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 23, 2016 at 12:10pm

Chris, what stress you must be feeling. So many things, so fast. Dido's liver infection was the cause of his weight loss? He survived! I hope your new computer works well for you and is easy to learn. 

Rien, is that your partner's name? I have not heard it before. It has a strong and stable sound to it. 

Peace!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 23, 2016 at 12:05pm

Oh, boy, Chris!  That is a terrible week!  Glad to hear that Dido is OK and that you're back online.  Next up:  taking care of that broken molar.  I wish ALL of you well.
