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

Purrrr-purrrrr-purrrrrr......the sweetest, most relaxing sounds on Earth....cats and the surf.  (I spent the first 5 years of my life living next to the ocean in Hermosa Beach.  I still have some tapes of the ocean...and seagulls... that I listen to when I need to relax.)

Do the guest rooms come with a cat to sleep with?  ; > )

What a FABulous layout!  I always wanted a real model train, NOT one of those 3-rail toy Lionel sets.

Can I come visit, and learn how to run the trains?  Please?

PS: Does he have any passenger cars?  I used to have a brass engine and tender, plus a custom passenger car with the Holiday On Ice logo painted on the sides.  It was a gift from a platonic lover at MAD Magazine....and I had the whole thing on the credenza behind my desk at work.  When the new owners fired all of us, they wouldn't let me take the train with me....claimed it was company property.  I couldn't afford to sue them...

Broke what was left of my heart (my favorite co-worker was dying of AIDS...that was hard enough to handle.)

Hay Loren, I accidentally ran across a site with snippets of The Newsroom while looking for something else. These are great scenes. Now I am going to have to go find the longer versions; these just tease. Is The Newsroom on this season? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 22, 2014 at 2:14pm

Patricia, great find! I like the shorter version and it says what the whole book says. Good summary. 

Now, let's throw the book out and build a life not based on superstitions. Seems like a great burden lifts from my shoulders. Life is short, it can be hard, there are things that can make it more meaningful and fun.

Scalia reminds me of a short, fat, obnoxious sophomore boy in my highschool who wanted to be noticed. The methods he used were so dreadful, no one wanted him anywhere near them. He would join a table in the cafeteria and others would leave him all by himself. He had a way of intruding where he clearly was not wanted.

Scalia, the misfit, is the nicest thing I can say about that scoundrel.

Ya, atheists come in all styles and so many of the really bright minds look like some leftover from an earlier degenerate era. The atheist men that dress like Sunday-go-to-meet'n church-men turn me off, too, until I read or listen to what they have to say. 

So much for pre-judgement.
