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 Feb 16. 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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…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

I wasn't aware of them working together.  That makes them even more dangerous.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 11, 2016 at 3:05pm

They'll also gang up - a group of them can give larger dogs a run for their money as well.

Comment by Donald L. Engel on March 11, 2016 at 2:53pm

Ruth, a raccoon can kill any cat, and most small dogs.  They get up to 20 or 25 pounds.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 11, 2016 at 12:08pm

Thanks for sharing your experience with the forest animals, Joan. I didn’t know a raccoon could kill an adult chicken. Hitting a deer, ugh <cringe>.

Sorry to hear about your stepmother, Ian.

Lately I've been reading about laws restricting women's access to abortion and contraception, and laws restricting what people on SNAP would be allowed to buy. <sigh> State level GOPs seem focused on bullying women and the poor. It's like paying close attention as you pull the legs off ants on your kitchen floor, while your doors are locked and your house is burning down.

I don't remember any hills as high as what some of the pictures show. 

Comment by Donald L. Engel on March 11, 2016 at 11:40am

Deer normally won't jump over 6 feet high, so I put up a seven foot chicken wire fence around our garden, and haven't been bothered since.  I gave up the Bambi scenario when I went hunting 60 years ago.

I did a while back, Chris, when I posted some pix of the trees where I live.  If I get the opportunity this fall, I'll break my camera out again and see if I can capture some of the beauty of the Cleveland MetroParks, and perhaps some of the other notable places the North Coast can boast about.

Show us, Loren!

Comment by Loren Miller on March 11, 2016 at 8:09am

The Netherlands shots were brilliant, Carl!  Thank you for those.  I'd like to think we have beauty like that in Cleveland here and there, especially around autumn when the MetroParks hit peak color.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 11, 2016 at 7:48am

Amazing photographs of The Netherlands, Carl. Some look like paintings. It's been 50 years since I was there.

Glad to hear you're okay, Joan. Personally, I've never been in a deer/auto accident, but some family members have. It's a real problem around these parts.

Ian, it came as a surprise to read about the Bambi/Jew comparison. Interesting thought.

Speaking of Jews, the PBS show "Finding Your Roots" featured Dustin Hoffman and his ancestry. He got very emotional "discovering", or at least admitting, he was Jewish. His father, evidently, never mentioned it, nor discussed his heritage. Hoffman was clueless.
