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.

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Wednesday. 22 Replies

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

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…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

Patricia, I don't know their exact address or name. The house is near the other end of the block above our corner.

I think my sister has a roll of yellow "police tape"...I just have to figure out how to put it around the base of the tree.  Or maybe from the tree and across the bottom of the driveway to the backyard fence....  The tree is right next to the driveway, so any idiot can just walk up to it and take what they want.  We have security (motion detector) lights, but they only work at night.

Damn.  We just got rid of the buttheads who used to park on our side street and smoke pot, and....errr...entertain their sluts.  Now this.  Aaaaarrrrgh!

That can't be true, Patricia, but very funny!

Comment by sk8eycat on November 27, 2014 at 5:36pm

Oh, Patricia!  That made me laugh!  I wish I could have done something like that to the two Armenian thieves who helped themselves to our avocados today!  I know they live on our street, because it's only 2 blocks long, and we hear weird music from up the hill when they have one of their loud parties. 

I should have grabbed my camera, and caught them in the act, but I just can't move fast enough.  I did call the police, but they said trespassing and stealing a bushel of avocados is a  misdemeanor....not worth pressing charges.

I'm still pissed off.  I wonder if they steal fruit from the rest of the neighbors....

@ Patricia - wow, I bet that mastodon was almost 9000 years old!

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 27, 2014 at 3:15pm

Chris, Just a little celebration with you for your new-found freedom. I hope all goes well for you and your family. I know we are 3/4 the way through autumn, and let the celebrations begin. We are a month from the shortest day of the year.

Ruth, sorry about the failed attempt to get a turkey. What did you choose for dinner? 

Patricia, great story about the thief. It takes intelligence to survive, whether in the wild or in a community. I wonder what he told his friends when he got out?

Chris, what good news. It sounds like a very nice day out to the museum. I would very much like to go to Leiden because that is the city from which my widowed ancestor and her son left for the Colonies in 1632. I didn't know about that town when I visited relatives in Brugge, Belgium.

 museum Naturalis in Leiden - a museum about life on earth.

My goodness, look at those antlers!

I'm glad to hear you got one monkey off your back Chris.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 27, 2014 at 2:14pm

That made me smile Patricia.  I love the stories of incredibly stupid criminals.

Comment by Plinius on November 27, 2014 at 10:16am

Thanks, Mindy and Felaine! We even had our first day off together! Last week the two of us went (without patients) to museum Naturalis in Leiden - a museum about life on earth. A busman's holiday for partner, as he works in a museum, but we enjoyed ourselves enormously!
