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.

any device, Joan? Have you tried asking?

We could make a list. I'm from 25-2-1954, I think Americans would write 2-25-1954. Looks strange to me.

Sugar substitutes just aren't the same. For example, on this morning's oatmeal, I tried cinnamon, vanilla, and raspberries (black), plus a spoonful of yogurt. Nope. But, the subs are good for me anyway.

I was clipped and as a man being pregnant is an impossibility even with a women I'm with.  Unless she's cheating on me.

Har Har.

Craving?
Chris, I'm not going to believe you're pregnant.
Comment by Chris on March 28, 2017 at 3:25am

I've been craving cheese cake lately.

Randall I underatand that there are benificial fats that curtail sweet cravings - such as Olive oil and Avacadoes for example.

Happy B/D.

I'm thinking about taking a train to Oergon to see the solar eclipse. I have afriend there I can stay with. It may be difficult to afford, but it's a once in a lifetime oppertunity.

Randy, I am glad we are able to celebrate your birthday with you; I use any device I can to find out when each one's time comes around. You have this wonderful trip planned! What a reason to diet.

Randall, Italy is the perform reason to cut back on sugar now. .
Comment by Randall Smith on March 27, 2017 at 7:22am
My bad, dropping my birthday. Didn't mean to. The point was my sugar-free "experiment". Like any plan, one has to have a starting date. I just thought the 24th was a good day because on April 24th, I'll be going to Italy. Then I'll indulge! More on the Italy trip later.
Anyway, thanks for the good wishes.

L & L returned home from Phoenix yesterday afternoon after a month in the sun and visiting Larry's relatives. They returned from 100°F temperatures to 41°F highs.
