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.

Ruth, it took me about a week to get used to my CPAP machine.  Now I feel lousy if I'm not wearing it in bed.  I learned to put my head on the pillow, and then use the pillow to hold the face mask while I moved my head within the mask to get the most direct air flow to my nose.  It just takes the slightest movement of my head to adjust it right.

Ruth, my ex had to start using a CPAP and he struggled with how uncomfortable it was.  I'm not sure what your issue is, but my ex finally ended up having a small nasal surgery which corrected his problem.

Sorry to hear about the awful storm and its damage to your kids property, Randall.

Thanks for your physical therapy update, Flying Atheist. The parade was not in your cards.

I haven't been here as much as I'd like. Struggling for over a month to get used to sleeping with a CPAP. <sigh><bags under eyes> I read that most people only take a week or two.

Hello to all.  I hope you're having a good weekend.  Not much new here.  Just doing my twice-weekly physical therapy and going to intermittent doctor appointments.  The physical therapy is definitely helping to give me strength and more confidence in walking and moving about.

Chicago's gay pride parade is tomorrow, Sunday, and I really felt a strong need to attend because of the horrific massacre in Orlando.  But I realize I can't physically stand for hours and hours, especially in the hot sun.  It would also be extremely difficult to navigate through such a large crowd because of the high risk of falling.  One million or more people are expected to be there.  It's a huge parade that is at least three hours long.  Perhaps I should just be sitting on top of a float in the parade!

Randy, sorry to hear about all the weather problems you and your family are going through.  The flooding of farmland and the loss of buildings and so many trees is devastating. 

Comment by kathy: ky on June 24, 2016 at 12:23pm
Randall, sorry to hear that. Weather reports were running on the TV last night predicting your area would be hit hard. By the time it arrived here after midnight we only had a small amount of thunder and almost no rain.

That's bad Randall, a pity about the trees and I do hope the greenhouses were insured!

Comment by Randall Smith on June 24, 2016 at 6:38am

Things got even worse on the farm after a storm with 100+mph winds blew through. My kids "lost" two greenhouses with damage to others. And I (we) lost at least 30 nice trees, some 3 feet in diameter, in the 7 acre woods. I walked through it, scrambling over and around downed maples, buckeyes, oaks, etc. It was devastated, as was I. It'll take time to recover.

Beautiful viseo, Joan, thanks. I have been watching  "Last chance to see" this week, so beautiful, and it leaves me a little hope for the furure.

Ian, a forklift driver has good attributes: you can push things around and bring order out of chaos. I hope you like your new skills and enjoy the people with whom you work.

 I found a film that relaxes as it intrigues me. I turned the volume way down to the lowest decibel to add to my enjoyment: 

Noctilucent Clouds and Aurora Over Scotland
