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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner yesterday. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

National expansion, Chris. Wilders must be extatic.

Bad luck, Randall. That's a lot of extra money every month. Keep a lookout for holiday special deals, though at Dish network.

My last TV was still working when I got rid of it after more than 20 years. I only changed because the cable went digital. The electronics shop nearly fell over with shock when I asked for the smallest possible flat-screen model (28"). I must admit that electronics etc drive me to distraction.

Making connections with all the different electronic types and models from different manufacturers, and then to get the "right" package to make it all work is a nightmare. I wish there was more universal uniformity with all of it.

Bad news, Randall, you'd expect a well working set. I keep my 16 year old set going as long as possible...

Comment by Randall Smith on November 30, 2016 at 7:18am

I was surprised my new television set arrived yesterday! My daughter helped me set it up and running. Come to find out, unless I upgrade my DISH channel package, I can't get HD. The entire screen is not used, either--more like 38" rather than 48". I called DISH about it, but got the run-around. Upgrading would cost me another $50/mo!! Not worth it. Disappointing.

It doesn't look like I've missed anything in the past week while my computer was in the shop. Bad monitor--one of those old fashion TV sets. Not only did I buy a new one, but I bought a new television. I couldn't pass up the Black Friday deals. 49" flat screen, here I come!

Daniel, sorry to disappoint, but the map was just an example of optimistic programming; the developers obviously never applied a sanity check to their results:  http://www.ganssle.com/tem/tem317.html#article2
