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 day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

That was impressive, Bertold, though I would have been more impressed if it hadn't amounted to little more than an Intel commercial.

My daughter and her 3 kids are visiting Legoland in Chicago today, as a matter of fact! Maybe it's not called "Legoland", but something like that. Spring break.

It'll be a wonderful world when this is someone's biggest problem as they pass the century mark:

"When you turn 100 and you can't play with Legos anymore" - LEGO package with "Ages 4-99"; woman with her 100th birthday cake, not looking very happy(Though I'm sure that woman has broken many an arbitrary rule in her day! Thanks to Ruth for passing along the picture to me.)

Thanks Ian, I love info like that!

Geography lesson of the day:

It's all the Netherlands, the low countries, Joan. Holland is an old name meaning woodland (houtland), but there's not much left of the prehistoric woods. The name Holland is still in use for two provinces next to the sea, North-Holland with Amsterdam in it and South-Holland with Leiden and Rotterdam.

Carl, the windstorm went mostly north of us and hit Seattle hard.  One person was killed up there, and when I went to bed last night they said 250,000 were out of power.

Donald, I hope you made it through the wind storm OK.

It is Pi Day 3/14. Let's celebrate! 

"ancient Babylonians calculated the area of a circle by taking 3 times the square of its radius, which gave a value of pi = 3. One Babylonian tablet (ca. 1900–1680 BC) indicates a value of 3.125 for pi, which is a closer approximation."

Notice that is ca. 1900–1680 BC
