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.

Yasmine Mohammed is not your average ex-Muslim.  Not only did she get shut of Islam, she also managed to escape what was at one time the most notorious of radical Islamist organizations: Al Qaeda.  She has since documented the story of her apostasy…Continue

I have a description of my water problems and solutions in Godless in the Garden. Here is the rest of the story. 

Task done, everything is on timers, and I am off tomorrow to spend a week with my daughter and son from Littleton, CO and his two sons. All my grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be there and I should have some photos to share next week.

All the adult members of Laura's family are on the volunteer fire dept. and we are all prepared to provide back up for those who go to fight the fires. We take water, healthy sandwiches and fresh fruits and vegetables. We also take along plenty of buckets and basins and towels so the firefighters can splash themselves down to cool off.  

Added to this excitement, my granddaughter's baby, Brooklyn is expected to be born on Monday. I won't be wanting for entertainment and excitement.

Laurie, my granddaughter, already told me she didn't want me in the room when she delivered. I am sure glad to know that because I don't like to watch pain, even it has such a fine outcome as a new great-granddaughter.

Here's an image of how the jet stream wave bringing me cooler weather brought you fire-prone conditions at the same time, Joan.

Ian, Wonderful cartoon! Makes a whole lot more sense that fish will talk together about humans, then humans will ever get over their fetish for being right and killing each other to prove it. I'm sharing. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on July 20, 2014 at 1:15pm

Joan, I don't know what to say. Being that close to a major wildfire must have been dreadful. Knowing that such conditions will continue in your region of the country just makes the dread deeper.

Knowing that we in the East had a few days of cooler weather from the same Rossby wave that brought hotter, drier weather to your region makes me feel a little guilty.

The Collapse of Mormonism: Why Millions Are No Longer Mormons

"THIS RECENT ARCHAEOLOGICAL DISCOVERY IS TRIGGERING THE COLLAPSE OF MORMONISM GLOBALLY. Since the book of Abraham is a Fraud, how can they trust the book of Mormon or Joseph Smith? They can't.

"(As a result, millions are abandoning the Mormon Church and returning to biblical truth.)

"Joseph Smith vs God's Word 
http://www.cross.tv/53910

"This is an expose on how and learn why Mormons are NOT Genuine Christians and they teach a false gospel and a False Jesus. A False Jesus cannot save nor restore a person's relationship with God. There's no substitute for Jesus Christ. Don't allow yourself or others become deceived by this cult. There is One and Only One God."

Grant Palmer had some good information that I can use the next time I'm arguing with one of my family members.  It sounds like he has researched it quite well, but If, as it appears, he is still religious, then I don't know if I can trust his word completely.

James White also has some information that I've not heard before, and can use.  He is also amusing once in a while.  However, he gets a few things wrong, and I get annoyed with him constantly saying Mormonism is very different than Christianity.  So bleeping what?  They are both horribly false.  What does it matter if they are different?

Homo sapiens has become god, capable of destroying life as we know it. 
The good news, the Earth will survive and revive, as it goes on its splendid journey through space and time. Remnants of mankind will be concrete and steel that weather away into their basic elements.
