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.

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

Patricia, perhaps with all the advancements we've made in gene and DNA science, perhaps you'll be able to have a purple cat in the near future.

Thanks sk8ycat, I'm handicapped when it comes to posting links. I did for awhilebbut posting from this tiny phone is a double hindrance.

Interesting article, Sk8eycat.  Thanks for the info.

BTW, Patricia, I wouldn't mind having a black cat that sparkles!  lol

Love the photos, Patricia.  That horse is gorgeous. 

These photos reminded me of a song from my childhood.  I used to listen to my copy of this Captain Kangaroo record over and over.

That is a bit surprising to me, Mindy.  I guess there's no end to the fascinating behavior of humans.  It never once occurred to me that dogs -- dogs! -- could be subjected to prejudices of color.  I am aware that some people have unfounded fears against certain breeds but having an adverse reaction to a dog's color never crossed my mind.

Randy, what a fine specimen of a dog you chose. Beautiful, looks like she is in charge of keeping you and yours safe, can give and take love and attention. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 5, 2014 at 12:14pm

Beautiful dog, Randy! 

K.H., seriously?  Is there a study that shows actual prejudices against black dogs?

Comment by k.h. ky on August 5, 2014 at 8:07am
She's beautiful Randall. I'm glad you got a black one. Have you read the study on the prejudice against black dogs? Interesting.
Comment by Plinius on August 5, 2014 at 7:25am

She looks like good company, Randall!
