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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

She brought up two more unbroken eggs today. I'm sure that's all of them now. Because she went out in the pouring rain to get the last one and she hates rain :)

This is my second boston and both have been the most gentle dogs I've ever been around. With everyone and everything. I had Rottweiler's when I was younger and they were wonderful too. And, with the exception of one, also very gentle.
Daniel, how is Charley doing? I hope he's still well and comfortable.

Wow Kathy, what a good dog, and smart!

You know its bad when a snow plow loses control.  And plows into a cop who lost control.

Portland has about one ice storm every winter, with treacherous black ice. Black ice matters!  In a hilly town like Portland, there are lots and lots of sliders.

That reminds me of when I was a student.   lived uphill from the hospital.  During one ice storm I couldnt stand up, so I crouched on the slippery street and slid 3 blocks downhill, stopped by veering into a snowbank.  Those were the days :-)

Carl, what a facinating pile-up!  I found some of it amusing, but I've slid out of control on ice before, and the loss of control and worry about the what I might hit was the opposite of amusing.  Luckily, I never hit any vehicle or person.  Just broke a barb-wire fence once, and ended-up in a deep ditch once.

I've changed service providers several times. Direct is the best provider. Both user friendly and better quality signal. With fewer outages. I catch them on a fixed price deal.
Dish tried to sale me a monthly warranty on the equipment they lease to me. I always thought leased equipment was covered by the company you lease from.
Comment by Idaho Spud on December 6, 2016 at 11:27am

Very good Kathy.  It appears to me those providers charge way too much. 

Also, what a good dog you have.

Daniel, regarding the Nativity scenes, ordinarily I'd say something like: "Put 'em back where you found 'em," but in this case, it's a bell you just can't un-ring!  OY!!!

Anyone else see this video from Montreal?  Ah, the joys of Winter!

Slow-motion pile up of cars, buses and trucks in snowy Montreal

The nativity scenes and menorah are a lot of fun.

Good for you, Kathy. It pays to be stubborn when dealing with companies.
