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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Yes Chris - from my front deck.

Is that where you live, Bertold? Looks great!

Magical morning

A deer-proof cage. Good idea.

Joan, I've been aware of the excess Arctic and Antarctic heat. Thanks for posting about Arctic Un-Winter. The Arctic refreeze pauses are kind of alarming, as if a tipping point has been passed and feedbacks such as releasing latent heat are making noticeable disturbances. I wonder if this is a symptom of a new regime emerging. Just read a paper that models of ramp up to a Blue Ocean Event all showed a negative Arctic Oscillation, which caused meriodional (north-south) winds that bring more heat to the Arctic. We are seeing the planet change.

Oh, if I were a rabbit, I would eat the beans, too. Poor beans! well, at least you do grow them and they look so pretty and delicious in your harvest basket.

Attempt #4 at posting this: 

Drifting into Arctic Un-Winter

"Many call it global weirding. But weird just barely describes what’s happening in the Arctic right now. To the consternation of some, I’ve warned that the process we are now witnessing is the start to ... that will assuredly happen if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels soon. But we could just as well call it un-winter. Or de-wintering. Whatever you want to name it, and regardless of whether your initial inclination is to downplay it or to shout it from the hills, what’s happening in the Arctic right now is unprecedented and more than a little scary."

Is it too late to restore our climate of recent centuries? If it is too late, from where do we find assistance? 
Climate deniers, you should be held accountable for impeding thought and action to keep us safe.

I'll try to post again over here:

Daniel, next years sweet corn, or whatever you plant in the garden with all that chicken much will just love you and reward you with bushel crops. That will also be an excellent place to plant the three sisters. 

"The Three Sisters are the three main agricultural crops of various Native American groups in North America: winter squash, maize (corn), and climbing beans (typically tepary beans or common beans)."

It worked, now to the rest of my A/N friends, Good afternoon. I will take advantage of the successful last tries and say how glad I am to have you to participate with trying to get oil companies to explore and develop alternative energy sources. 

I successfully sent an invitation to A/N members from A to L to join the group, Renewable Energy Sources

I am unable to send invitations to A/N members because I have been unsuccessful in figuring out how to send to A/N friends. I will keep trying. 

My old brain just can't keep up with this new-fangled technology and I send hugs to all those who are smart and able. How I envy you your brightness!

Attempt #2
Hi, Spud, it seems our little group has a reason to grow now that some fossil fuel corporations look to doing research on alternative energy sources. There exist great opportunities for those who create, invent, develop alternative energy. 

We live in an incredibly exciting time of human development. I jus wish I could remember how to invite A/N members to this site. I tried and tried, finally got through A - L and then sent that request off. I tried to duplicate sending the rest and I am still struggling with how to invite A/N members. 

I'm too old for this kind of brain twisting. 

How are you doing!
