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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

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

Spud, those Idaho laws have to be among the funniest in the nation. I wonder what brought them to the law books? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 8, 2017 at 12:35am

Danial, good news, and bad news, indeed. I hope there is no damage and that you find a remedy that works. 

A storm came through Newport the other night with -18 degree F. Your expected storm looks as tough it might be a bad one. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 8, 2017 at 12:10am

Looks great, Daniel.  I really love the color scheme and your choice of tile.  I hope the frozen pipes haven't caused damage.  

I'm not surprised at all the crazy laws that are or once were on the books.  Afterall, there was a time when it was scandalous to see a woman's bare ankles.

Daniel it looks wonderful so far. Major improvement over the last photos. Do you have heat tape on your water pipes that run inside the house.
Comment by Daniel W on January 7, 2017 at 9:09pm

Wow, Spud.  That's weird about cannibalism. I had no idea!  I suspect you can't buy or sell long pig due to USDA safe food regulations, but I could be wrong.  Murder and desecration of a corpse would be illegal in most places, but is barbecue considered desecration? 

Frowning with intent to scowl.  Frightening!  But it's OK to carry a firearm?

Here's the endless kitchen project progress report.  Good news / bad news.  Good news is the range hood is up, as is the under-cabinet lighting.   There is still beaucoup work needed on trim, details, & tons of cleanup.  County inspection is required before we get propane.  Bad news is the water pipes  and/or well head froze last night & I have to wait for thaw to find out what's wrong.  Country living!

Bertold, I don't have to give names do I ; )

Funny Bertold.

Holy crap!

  • What are you in for?
  • Aggravated public frowning with intent to scowl.
