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 Feb 16. 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

Randy, I would stop reading and responding to computer discussions, however, Cary wants to be alone. He doesn't want anyone to come and say their "goodbyes" and he doesn't want me asking him how he slept, or how is his pain level, or any reference to his condition. He discusses all these things with Laura and she is a very special source for him. 

I do make broths and finely sieved vegetable soups for Cary and I end up eating them when the jar remains untouched for several days. I must say, I am growing fond of my soups, sieved or not. 

I come to the computer for comfort. Thank you for thinking of Cary and me. I value your care for us.

Carl, that looks like a fairly efficient way to commit suicide.

If I was young again, I would sky-dive, bungee jump, parasail, and several other things, but would not run that trail!

Oh Joan. I'm so sorry. It's good to have your son with you. Take a break from the computer to concentrate on matters at hand. We'll understand.

Here's the beach, has anyone got a sandwich?

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 14, 2016 at 1:56am

Chris, your trip sounds like more my pace! Especially if you end at the beach with a nice picnic lunch riding along 

Comment by Plinius on October 14, 2016 at 1:02am

I never cycled on such a path and I don't want to speed too, but it makes me long for the trips I used to make, often with a group of friends and ending at the beach - nice!

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 6:53pm

Carl, thanks for your thought; and I to you and your family. 

That bike ride looks horrid, even to walk it slowly with a cane! 

Qiana, would you go on such a bike ride?

Joan, the secret I found was googling till I hit the fb how to delete. Lol. As soon as I managed to log into fb it started pushing a mobile app and wouldn't let me bypass it. Everything had changed over the years and it wasn't user friendly to a strangers

Joan, please know that I'm thinking about Craig, you, and your family.
