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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Ian, what a wonderful way to spend the day.  Snuggled up with a fun book.

Ruth, I just finished watching the Democratic presidential debate.  At least the reality of climate change is viewed as a serious matter.  How we will react and to what degree is another issue.  Such a far contrast to the Republicans.

I'm just getting ready to start a new book.  "Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern" by Joshua Zeitz.

I've started reading Climate Change, Capitalism, and Corporations, not exactly a curl-up-with book. Enjoy your pun-filled mystery, Ian.

A three-day train ride. Hope it's nice weather and great scenery, Randall, and your family visit is great.

Randy, have a great trip and visit.  I've always wanted to take a cross-country train ride.  Perhaps one of these days.

Looks very nice, Ian! 

Comment by Ian Mason on October 13, 2015 at 6:12am

It's a grey, cold and windy day so I'm going to enjoy a good book. In this case, "The Big Over Easy" by Jasper Fforde. It's Easter in Reading and Humpty Dumpty has been murdered. A hard case to crack for DI Jack Spratt and DS Mary Mary. They'll need help from SOCOs Baker and Kandelstykmaeker. 
If you love puns and wordplay, this is one for you.

Hello and welcome, Fredy.

Have a great trip, Randall. You'll enjoy it when you get there.

I've been making this year's chutney today. It's really a way of using up the tomatoes that haven't ripened. It takes a couple of months to mature so I don't know what it will taste like yet but I'm optimistic. Something spicy and tangy to keep out the winter cold when January and February come.

Greets, Fredy, and welcome.  Please have a great time here!

Comment by Randall Smith on October 12, 2015 at 7:20am

In case I haven't mentioned it here, I'll be gone a week. Off to Sac. CA to visit a daughter and son. I'm taking the train the long route, 3 days up and through Montana, etc., and south through Oregon. Worse part, I'm too cheap to buy a sleeper car. Oh boy.

Hi Fredy, welcome here!
