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

Mindy, I'll join the chorus hoping everything went well -- and that you'll be back on your feet, safely lifting, driving, and doing all that other stuff for yourself, before too long!

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 21, 2014 at 3:21pm

Mindy, I'm thinking of you also, and hoping to hear a good report.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 21, 2014 at 2:40pm

Mindy, I'm thinking of you, hoping all went well, and that you take good advantage of your imposed restrictions. Here is a group hug for you! 

Comment by Ian Mason on April 21, 2014 at 1:00pm

Mindy, I hope things went well and that you are enjoying the life of "armchair captain" and your coffee has been returned to you.

Hi, Mindy.  I hope you had a good birthday and that your procedure went well today.  Here's to a speedy recovery.  

Comment by Grinning Cat on April 20, 2014 at 6:44pm

Happy birthday, Mindy! You certainly bring thought and smiles to a lot of people, whether or not they've met you face to face!

(And Carl, thanks for telling us about George Takei's birthday as well.)

I forgot to say that Bill was a beautiful skater, but he was always stuck in the chorus line, except for an HAP spot here and there.  Pity.

One friend of mine from my HOI days sat next to Sulu before Trek hired Walter Koenig to play Checkov.

(He also skated in Ice Capades for a year before he decided to try film and TV.

Another couple of friends kick-started the letter-writing campaign to NBC to keep Trek on the air for the third season.

I adopted their beautiful black cat, Fred, last year because they couldn't keep her where they were living then.  Fred has since adopted my sister, which is fine with me.

Nice one, Loren. Stealing.
