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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

But we know Carl, we clean the cat box every day!

Sk8eycat, maybe if you hired an animal communicator, you might discover that cats do give a shit.

"Animal communicators" (pet "psychics")

I'll make an exception for people like Monty Roberts because he studies and uses the way horses (and other animals) communicate with their own herd.  But spare me from the clowns who pretend to tell you what your dog is worrying or thinking about!  (They don't seem to do well with cats; probably because most cats don't give a shit.)

Oh my quezicotil!  Mindy, that a great one!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 26, 2014 at 9:28am

Regarding the current topic, all of us here seem to be Einstein's compared to the people who comment after online news articles.  I think we all deserve a pat on the back for that!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 26, 2014 at 9:25am

Ha!  Good one, Mindy.

Comment by Ian Mason on August 26, 2014 at 9:20am

"Optirectomy". What a great word! I'll try to work that into every conversation now.

Yes, I could develop an aversion to verse instead of versus.

How about (gritting teeth) "wellness"?  Whatever happened to "health"?
