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

Sorry you suffer from traveler's disease.

I have not seen this before, the patterns laid out so systematically, A draw by rectangles guide. Can't capture the essence that Leonardo can.

Hope you feel better soon, Randall!

Not that anyone wants to hear this, but another "by-product" of my trip was food poisoning! I think it was the Houston airport burrito I had that's made me sick the past two days. I thought prepping for a colonoscopy was bad. This has been much worse--certainly longer.

Welcome home, Randy.

When I was younger, I couldn't understand the need for peace and quiet. I've learnt something since then.

What to wear in high winds? Many, many layers.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 13, 2016 at 9:15am

Well, I've just returned from visiting my daughter and her family ( children, ages 11 and 13) in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I could write a book about the previous 5 days. Don't worry, I won't.

Flight(s)? Awful: cancellation and missed connection; customs the pits.

My daughter (Valerie) is wonderful (of course)! I observed her checking the eyes of 6 patients (She's an optometrist). All in Spanish, of course. So interesting. She and her husband run a medical clinic in the "slums".

I'll stay positive and won't comment on my son-in-law, nor the kids. But 3 full days with them is plenty long enough!

Anyway, it's good to be back to peace and quiet. No loud talking, music, TV, etc. Too much for this old man.

A windbreaker?

Just to be fair to the Pacific side, 

Pacific Earth Wind Map

A bit of weather/wind map of the Atlantic

Earth Wind Map

there is no date stamp on it. I wonder what one wears in 75 km, 46 mph winds?
