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 day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Carl, I'm happy you're feeling better. Flu is running rampant now. I stay away from everyone as much as possible.
Mindy, I too am glad the holidays are over.
Joan, you sound much better than a few days ago.
Hello to everyone else.

I enjoy having remodel work going on in and around my house. I like the smell of sawed wood, the sound of machines and the chatter of craftsmen. I guess it is because my Dad was a carpenter and we had all kinds of tools and machines and projects going on all the time.

Patricia I enjoyed your water skiing photo. Real teamwork. ! 

Raising huskies and malemute must have taken a lot of energy, I was around them when I lived in Kenai, Alaska and visited the native and homesteader families there who raced them.

Carl, your Sidney Bechet recording sounds great. I saved a playlist of his performances. Very pleasant background music.

Back to normal again! Here we had two winterish days and now we're back in the rainy season. Statistics on the weather in 2014 say that the temperature was 1° C. higher than the average.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 2, 2015 at 1:08am

Joan, your movie clip inspires me to post a little bit more of Sidney Bechet.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 2, 2015 at 12:55am

Ah, Paris. I haven't been there since a dismal February in 1981. One of the places I must re-visit. It looks so nice in the sunshine. Thanks.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 2, 2015 at 12:53am

Yes, Kathy, it's been pretty chilly here the past few days.  It has warmed up to 26 right now.  Yesterday was in the teens and windy.  One of those "raw" winter days. 

I've basically been a hermit and stayed in the warmth of my apartment.  Of course, I'm recovering from the flu.  It hit me bad for about two days but then I was feeling better by leaps and bounds every day.  It's obvious that getting a flu shot has dramatically affected the length and severity.  I'm glad for that!

Well, folks.  We all appear to have survived the big holiday season.  Hopefully we can relax and enjoy some needed down time.  Let's see........what's next?  Oh, yeah, Easter!  LOL

Carl, that sounds so ... special. What a way to get an introduction to a city. I have never been to Paris, although I did do some research in rural towns very close. I talked to women about their lives, personal and professional then compared and contrasted their lives with women's lives in other countries.

Joan, I liked the clip.

Visiting France would be fun if spoken French and written French weren't at war with each other.
