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 Loren Miller Sep 3. 2 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

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

And another

Comment by Ian Mason on June 1, 2018 at 9:33am

I've spent a few days with my daughter and her family. My grandson is developing quickly. At 3 months he's now focusing on things, is very curious about what he sees and chatters a lot. They don't want pictures spread about online but as this is a closed group, I'll share one.

That was good luck, Randall and a nice case of someone being helpful. Most people are good that way.

A star is born with that ventriloquist. A very talented young woman.

The T&P ad is very funny. I've borrowed it for FB.

Glad you're back on line, Randall.

Comment by Randall Smith on June 1, 2018 at 6:56am

After several days without an internet connection, I'm glad to be back on line.

When my connection disappeared into thin air, I tried "trouble shooting" with no success. So I called my provider (Century Link). After an hour or so, they couldn't help. Said a technician could come no sooner than June 18. JUNE 18!!! Like 3 weeks away!

With the luck of a thousand cloverleafs (leaves?), I happened to see a Century Link service truck parked in front of a Subway restaurant. I turned around and went in, sat down in front of the man and told him my story. He offered to stop by my house and take a look! {With no work order, that's a no-no.)

He discovered a frayed DSL wire, and gave me a new 20 foot one to "do it yourself". Wow, what good fortune! So, I'm back in business, happy as a lark.
