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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Aww! Thanks for the pic of Aunt Phyllis napping with her kitty, sk8eycat.

Interesting place for a half marathon, Ian. You do get around.

Have a good week everyone.

Steph, who wouldn't be happy with that kind of cat around! :)  And thanks for the Cheshire Cat manicure, Ruth!

As for Tardar Sauce (the Grumpy Cat cat) being sweet and friendly in real life, here's what Grumpy Cat might say about that:

My dear, darling Aunt Phyllis, and her new buddy.

You're Never Too Old for a NAP!

Tunnel and bridge, Denmark - Sweden. I ran a ½ marathon through/over this when it opened in 2000.

Oh yes, I forgot chamomile tea, Ruth. Thanks for the reminder! And thank you for the list of "RICH SOURCES OF APIGENIN". 

I'm pooped; an 11:00 AM nap seems about right to me!

Have a very special day, each one of you.

Happy Memorial Day to all of you in the US.

Have you started drinking chamomile tea yet, Joan? I like creative bridges and tunnels too.

Loren, I appreciate that grumpycat can get on people’s nerves.

Sk8eycat, Tardar Sauce’s brother looks even grumpier to me, with that one tooth showing. I don’t like the narrow columns, either. You might want so send a comment to Brother Richard about it. While I  see the issue of casting off antiquated religious and politically motivated approaches toward important current issues, a whole movie of interviews isn’t something for which I’d pay.

Thanks for the I kissed a cat pic, Steph. That beagle looks so happy.

Wow, Ian. Celery tastes like dirty water to you. Too bad. Fortunately there are other foods with apigenin.

RICH SOURCES OF APIGENIN

Although it is found in many fruits, vegetables and herbs, the amount of it varies. The richest natural sources are:

  • Parsley
  • Celery
  • Other spices such as rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil and coriander
  • Chamomile
  • Cloves
  • Lemon Balm
  • Artichokes and Spinach
  • Peppermint
  • Red wine
  • Licorice


This is for you, Grinning Cat

Chris, your vacation sounds very special. I hope you have some little stories to share with us. I miss you when you are not her, welcome home!

There are several photos of the Netherlands that caught our attention and perhaps you are familiar with the sights. The design and engineering appeal to me. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 27, 2013 at 10:45am

Ian, good for you, you listen to your own body. Glad to know you have given celery a chance and know the answer, based on your body's messages.
