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.

why do people slow down to a halt to look at someone changing a tire on the side of the road? sigh...

Mindy, I got a few "Unfriends" too. Good. I have too much mail to read anyway. 

Charlie is also Daniel's Black French Poodle's name. That will be easy to remember, I hope. My memory isn't so good. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 5, 2014 at 10:07pm

That's funny (in a sadly truthful way), CLAWS.  That about sums it up. 

Mindy, you've only spoken the truth on Facebook.  If others can't handle it, oh well. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 5, 2014 at 7:13pm

I love that you threw in a side of atheism to go with that anti-republican entree, Mindy. It sounds like your sister REALLY needs to get out more!

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 7:03pm

@ booklover, wow...your sister unfriended you over politics? lol Well, you spoke your mind, so be it...

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 5, 2014 at 6:44pm

Mindy, I would love to know what horrible things you said about republicans that would make your sister un-friend you.  lol

Comment by Deidre on November 5, 2014 at 6:36pm

LOL @ CLAWS.

I didn't end up voting. I went there, the line was wayyy too long, and I had dinner plans with a friend. I swung back after dinner, and the polls were closed. lol

I don't know what it is, but this daylight savings time makes me sleepier so much earlier at night. It looks like midnight outside, when it's only 7:30pm lol Anyone else have a struggle with this? :=D

Comment by sk8eycat on November 5, 2014 at 5:39pm

Grinning....I got that email from CREDO earlier today, and one about Women's Rights from UltraViolet.  I signed both of them.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 5, 2014 at 1:52pm

Thanks, Grinning Cat. I signed that petition, but it seems a futile, desperate cry for help to a mostly hands-tied POTUS.
