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.

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Chris, oh good, I was looking at the correct bldg! A lovely spot in a beautiful city. I like the architecture. Everything looks so green.

Ian, I Google Earthed  Odder, Denmark. It looks like a ring fort on the east side of town. Is that correct? What is the history of your part of the world? What types of work supports Odder?

Chris I like this a lot. It reminds me of the neighborhood l was raised in in the Chicago area as a young child. I liked it. We were in walking distance of anything we needed. Movie theatre, five blocks down take a right! City park, restaurant, grocery, clothing you name it! I didn't want to move to the country and have never really liked it. That's not true. I enjoy it very much in the spring and summer : )

Good luck, Randy. I just got reamed at both ends, and Friday I get to have a wisdom tooth chopped out.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 15, 2015 at 7:37am

In a few minutes I visit my doctor for my annual physical. I don't expect anything unusual, but you never know. My blood tests were good. He'll ask if I've had my flu shot, and I'll say NEVER. Then we'll argue about its effectiveness. He may think my cholesterol is too high (266), but my HDL is 88, so the ratio is within recommended limits. We'll see.

That looks like a good place to live, Chris. And the other pictures show a clean and neat town. Gin and ships: sort of what one might expect of the Netherlands.

I've tried to find my road on Google street view but it's too unimportant to be included. I will have to take a pic at some point. I've also looked for Odder, Denmark via Google images but most show the nearby coast and surrounding villages rather than the town itself.

You won't find my roof garden, Joan, it's on the 3rd floor hidden behind the wall. My apartment on the 3rd and 4th floor.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 14, 2015 at 12:40am

Ruth, your temperatures just astound me. Our bitter cold weather that killed many of my greenhouse plants has turned to rain and mostly above freezing, night and day. Crazy weather.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 14, 2015 at 12:31am

I went to Google Earth and looked for a converted bank building with a general shape I knew your building to be. I looked for a roof garden and found none. Your beautiful city has so many lovely scenes, especially knowing it was or is industrial. It doesn't have that "industrial" appearance. Lovely parks, canals, buildings, all present a fine place to live.
