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.

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

Patricia I love, love, love this "Friends forever" video. Such sweet and gentle pairs and they seem to enjoy each other.

I've had unseasonably warm weather for the past 2 weeks.  Wouldn't upset me if it keeps-up.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 9, 2015 at 2:06pm

We have broken warm records this past week and lots of rain. Only small patches of snow that was piled up over the winter. The star magnolia broke dormancy. No more mountain ash berries left and the robins are everywhere. Mt Spokane sky parties are all cancelled. 

We had an odd rain the other day. It seems a humungous dust storm blew high into the altitude from Nevada. The winds brought it north to our region and we had a mud rain. I noticed cars at the Cancer Care Northwest parking lot needed finger signs on their windows, "Wash me!"


We undoubtedly will get a late hard frost. We always do. Well, who knows? Climate change deniers, expect some tough ribbing.

Love it, Patricia!

It's only Feb. 9th and freezing, but I saw a flock of robins. I'll be looking for Sandhill Cranes any day now!  At least the snow has melted.

R'amen, Patricia.

Yes, Randall, an interesting subject. One of my cousins did a lot of work on one side of my family and found a half-brother that was a secret and that his Dad wasn't his Dad. Scandal!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 8, 2015 at 7:57am

FYI, Ian, the discovery was the death date of my great great grandfather Wm. Henry Smith: 1842 -Mar 2, 1901. His grave site has no tombstone and no obituary was ever found. I spent $25 to have an expert from Ft. Wayne (IN) library investigate. I won't go into detail, but it's interesting.

I think I saw that movie. As I remember, it was a tear jerker.

Comment by Ian Mason on February 7, 2015 at 2:42pm

Joan, Charing Cross Road is the home of bookshops, new and used. It's the place I almost always visit when in London. The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square is at one end if I also want to feed my appetite for art. This is where you might have heard the name:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/84_Charing_Cross_Road_%28film%29

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 7, 2015 at 12:30pm

Randy, I agree, genealogy is a labor of love. 

Ian, I like the punometer. The Charing Cross Road rings a bell for me; was it in one of the BBC TV series perhaps? I like the name.  

Comment by Ian Mason on February 7, 2015 at 11:16am

That's good rock. Thanks.

What was the discovery, Randall? If you don't mind me asking.
