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 yesterday. 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

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…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

That's a truly honest political ad! “I’m Honest Gil Fulbright, and I approve of whatever my marketing team has put into this message.”

(It's worth watching to the very end.)

A gntle reminder of who we are as human beings.

A tremendous effort by crews from many states to get electricity flowing once again and we are cozy and warm in our homes. Thanks to all those who suffered the bitter cold to get us back on our feet.  

Today, Wednesday, Nov. 25, offers a serene scene often portrayed on Xmas cards and new year's greetings. White ground covered with snow, although ours appears considerably churned by dogs chasing birds and clouds. The trees hang heavy with snow; they glisten in the sunshine on a sky-blue day. 

The electric power went out for a brief period this morning with a tree down over the lines. All repairs completed, again, we enjoy the activities of preparation for a family gathering on Mourning Day in remembrance of native peoples' genocide and the role of religion in those tragic events.

I've changed my mind. I was invited to go with my daughter to her husband's family Thanksgiving. For some reason, I just don't feel comfortable "butting in". They'll be loud and obnoxious, and I can't handle that. So I told her I was going to stay home and do my own cooking. I have some really old freezer turkey and can whip up all the traditional foods. I even bought a can of cranberry sauce and some whipped cream for the pies I'm going to bake. The only tradition I'll miss is the turkey leg.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, friends.

Ian, my daughter and her husband just spent 3 days in Copenhagen (mostly) 10 or so days ago. They really enjoyed their time there, although the Little Mermaid was a bit disappointing. It amazes me it's such a tourist attraction.  They also went to Amsterdam, Stockholm, and Iceland. Whirlwind trip. They live in Honduras.

A lot of wind/rain/hail/sleet/snow in Denmark this weekend and a big freeze predicted overnight. There'll be chaos on the roads as all that slush turns into ice.

Just returned from a couple of days with my daughter and son-in-law. Very pleasant it was too. Chatting, eating and some art exhibitions. Last time I was there I thought I felt some tension but that seems to have lifted now that he's finished university and has a job: press secretary to the Cypriot embassy. He now rubs shoulders with some prominent people socially but also works 12-hour days sometimes.

I was too late because the parents thought dancing was ungodly, but I did a lot of rhythmic hugging without them knowing. A+lso ungodly of course.

Comment by Loren Miller on November 22, 2015 at 7:18am

Joan, I think of myself as having a modicum of rhythm, but I can't dance a lick.  Can enjoy it, though!

Dusting of snow on the ground this morning.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 22, 2015 at 7:14am
Yes, I got about 4" of snow yesterday. Since it was the 21st of Nov., my grandmother would say we'll have 21 snows this winter. Should I keep track?
