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 on Saturday. 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

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

There are also dog beards.

Randall, too bad about the calf being too shy or afraid to take milk from you. The vet shows make it look easy too. Here's some advice from cattlemen and here. That doesn't sound easy either. There's one video, but the calf is probably younger than yours.

I'm already a chocoholic ( Lindt 85%). I can only eat 3 or 4 squares at a time, because of the sugar.

I'm feeling a bit more chipper today, thanks Joan and k.h.ky. <sigh> I've also shared my problem with my husband, and Grinning Cat, and got support from them too. Bergen suggested a hobby. I don't have much energy or time for one. Unless you count enjoying LOLcats.

I appreciated your news about the Jet Stream. It is too soon to worry about that Equator crossing, unless a pattern develops over time. Don't forget the good Arctic Sea Ice news.

BTW, cat beard's whole genre.

Thanks Ruth. I think the problem may be the sporadic, unreliable internet signal. I can rarely get through anything without some type of disruption.

Ever bottle feed a baby calf? Well, I haven't either, but not for a lack of effort. Being a holiday weekend (Sunday morning now), my farm kids went to "the lake". So I was asked to feed the calf, whose mother is milkless. No problem, I was told. "She'll come right up to you", blah, blah, blah. After 2 hours of cajoling, chasing, stepping in cow poop, getting rained on, bitten by flies and mosquitoes, I finally gave up. Lyla will just have to go hungry 'til momma (my daughter) returns. I never thought I was that intimidating to a cow.

Ruth, how are you feeling today? I know the news about climate change is bad; about the only good thing I can find about that is it is now on the news. 

I like Randy's idea, a nice piece of chocolate. 

Comment by Randall Smith on July 2, 2016 at 7:21am

I know where you're coming from, Ruth. I try not to be cynical and misanthropic, but it isn't easy. Why don't you take a break from the news. Just ignore it all for a week or so. Have some chocolate.

Comment by kathy: ky on July 1, 2016 at 6:44pm
Ruth, I'm surprised it's taken you this long :/ I believe I was born a cynic. A skeptic for certain.

@Grinning Cat, thanks. I'll check that out.

Golden Years: a 2-part TV special by Stephen King about a man who began to rejuvinate. Also a song by David Bowie.

Loren, today I don't have it in me to watch a 47 long video about God causing cancer. Sorry.

The cumulative emotional impact of climate change-related disasters like the California and Florida toxic algae outbreaks, Wildfires in the West and in boreal forests all around the globe, Brexit, the dumpster-fire US political process,

attempts to reign in palm oil exploitation falling apart, etc.etc. Too many bad things are going on at once to fit in my head. The last few days hope has eroded enough on climate change that I'm starting, for the first time in my life, to be cynical, even sarcastic. My personality is eroding. You might have noticed a change in tone in recent posts.
