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.

maggie and milly and molly and may (Edward Estlin Cummings & Eric Whitacre)

It's amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

Hello Spooky!

Have fun, Loren!

Comment by Loren Miller on April 15, 2014 at 6:37am

To all and sundry: there is a new arrival in the Miller household.  Please say hello to Spooky:

Spooky is exploring his new home (and his new peoples!) and having LOTS of fun.  Our current feline residents are getting to know him and my guess is it'll all come out in the wash.

More pix forthcoming, I have no doubt!

I just clicked on the "CosmosonTV" link (replicated here) and it worked fine.  It SHOULD kick off either a new window or a new tab, depending on the browser your using.

Mindy, that young man looks to be a keeper!  Have you met him? Your daughter has a good head on her shoulders. She will do fine.

How is your son's knee?

Loren, I just discovered why your link didn't work for me. I used the period (.) in the address and got:

"Not Found

The requested URL / was not found on this server."

I took the (.) off and it works fine. ... except it gives the Trailers only, not the videos. It does have a nice Blog.

Randall, I don't have TV, but am able to watch Cosmos on my computer. Last night's program didn't get onto the computer site until just a few minutes ago. I have been checking last night and all day today. It finally was posted and can found here, at least for me: 


This one has the first six episodes. I watched only the first five minutes and will watch the rest now. 

Here is the address in case you need it:

A really funny video, GC. Tak så mykka

By the way, yesterday's Cosmos was great.  There were several facts he mentioned that I had forgotten or never heard before.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2014 at 7:39pm

I don't have cable or satellite TV, just a roof antenna, and I get Cosmos Sundays on FOX.
