Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

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

By the way, yesterday's Cosmos was great.  There were several facts he mentioned that I had forgotten or never heard before.

I don't have cable or satellite TV, just a roof antenna, and I get Cosmos Sundays on FOX.

And now for something completely different:

The Ministry of Silly Walks is alive and well at a pedestrian crossing in Norway:

Just finished a really good book: "Dominion" by C.J.Sansom.
The year is 1952. In 1940 the British P.M., Lord Halifax surrendered to Germany after the fall of France. A Nazi-friendly government is now in power. Churchill, Atlee, Bevan etc. have gone underground to lead the resistance. In a Midland's mental hospital is a scientist who knows a dangerous secret and who has to be got out and sent to America. All of this complicated by the Great Smog of '52. A thriller that will do things to your heart rate and blood pressure.

An imagined history, but the main theme of nationalism has become murduerously relevant again the last couple of decades

only available in the US..... I'll wait.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 14, 2014 at 8:03am

Cosmos is on Fox on Sundays and the National Geographic channel on Mondays, but you can also catch it on CosmosonTV.com.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 14, 2014 at 7:48am

I keep missing Cosmos! Is it on a "cable" channel? I'm limited there, if so. I have the extreme basic package.

Great poster, Mindy. Stealing. Glad to hear that your daughter is getting out and enjoying life. One of the best natural medicines is social activity.

Have to wait for a Cosmos rerun - was too tired to stay up and watch it.
