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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Dec. 26: Happy Boxing and Kwanzaa Day! 

Every day is "boxing day" for me--hitting my punching bag for exercise.

Sorry to hear that, Ruth. I hope you feel better soon.

I've spent a couple of days with a cold and stomach problems - blocked nose and bum the opposite - but the worst seems to be over so I was back at work last night. Just one for night to get through and then I'm off until New Year's Eve. The winter has arrived in Denmark with temperatures down to minus 12 c at night and 0 c during the day so I'll be doing a lot of reading. In fact I've just finished "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari. I don't agree with all of it but it's well worth reading.http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/sep/11/sapiens-brief-history-...

Thanks Ruth, and get better soon!

Ruth, sorry to hear you and your husband aren't feeling well.  I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Felaine, those li'l critters wouldn't bug me one bit!

Ruth, I hope the two of you feel much better soon!!

Oh, dear!  Well, Fleas Navidog, anyway.

Thanks for the holiday wishes, all. My husband and I spent the last two days with bronchitis. I sincerely hope you are all in good health.

I'm usually tempted to shovel everything at once, and then my muscles are so sore, that I don't sleep well that night.
