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.

Ian, I have that Crazy Cat Lady thing around here someplace.  I've never taken it out of the blister pak....afraid I'll lose the kitties.

We worked out a different scheme at our house. The main floor bathroom is for the girls. The second floor one is for the boys. I clean the girls'; Cary cleans the boys'.

As long as we are on the subject of peeing, for years I've been expressing support for adding urinals as part of standard bathroom fixtures for homes.  This would conserve an incredible amount of water.

Joan, my wife and I just saw the nightlight toilet at Home Depot this afternoon!  No, we didn't get it!  [We got the one with the slow-closing lid!]

Carl, I've always loved that Fleetwood Mac piece, and Christie's voice is perfect for it.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your time; have I got news for you:
