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

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

Thanks for the holiday wishes, all. My husband and I spent the last two days with bronchitis. I sincerely hope you are all in good health.

I'm usually tempted to shovel everything at once, and then my muscles are so sore, that I don't sleep well that night.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 25, 2014 at 3:51pm

I just finished shoveling 4 inches of wet snow off my sidewalk & driveway to the street.  I've had enough for today.  I'll wait a day or two to remove it from my walkway to the car, and the driveway to the gate.

That's funny GC.

Silly kitteh, every day is boxing day!

(image source: a discussion about "how cats see things". One poster wrote, "*opens box and sets aside to inspect contents* / *reaches over less than 30seconds later to retrieve box* / *box mysteriously weighs an additional 10lbs* / *opens box to find this* / They are like frieking magicians. Look away and BAM CAT IN BOX")

And for December 26th....

Comment by Larry on December 25, 2014 at 9:39am

Wow!  Loren, guess we'll have your 'left-overs' tonight.  Same menu except, add baked ham to it.  Will be thinking of your family tonight.  Just viewed your profile, to paraphrase W. C. Fields; "Everyone who loves 'cats' and hate kids, can't be all bad!"  ha ha

We had Christmas Eve dinner last night with me, my gal and her kids and grandkids - ham, green bean casserole, taters & gravy, corn, and other good stuff.  Today it's just me and her and a pair of stuffed Cornish hens, which works just fine for moi!
