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

What a delightful string of photos and comments. A very nice way to relax into the evening. 

Toenail chewing cat, peeing dogs, and pristine white snow with no yellow spots gives a nice, natural, normal feel to the day on the internet. 

No snow here, a slight warming trend away from those dreadfully cold, windy days, and a tiny bit above freezing daytime temps for the week. If we don't get a heavy snowfall before the New Year, we will have to scale back the Yule burn.

Excellent commercial...(Pantene)  Why isn't it being shown in the USA?

Ruth...for about 30 years I was a pet-sitter to supplement my meager salary as a bookkeeper, and most of my "clients" were dogs...BIG dogs!  One of the funniest was an AKC champion Weimaraner...sweet, loving, and a practical joker. She liked to be chased around the house, so she'd grab one of my fuzzy socks out of my suitcase, and run around the dining room table with it in her mouth.  She looked so silly. I have photos somewhere.

Then there were the two Cairn terriers who lived on a steep hill with a terraced backyard.  I'd put their dinner dishes on the back porch, and they would carefully carry them up to the first terrace, and dine on the lawn.  I have pictures of that trick, too.

I MUST go through my collection and scan everything so I can share them.

(I did NOT nake any pictures of a huge German shepherd puppy humping a king-size bed....;>P  His name was Thunder Thud.))

Thanks for the mellow interlude, Loren.

I save lots of the pictures here too.

I enjoy everyone's stories here.

Patricia, I've been getting bored far more easily the last few days. Maybe it's being in the house so much the last few weeks and then this snow. The news seems less compelling, and Cheezburger seems less amusing. My cats and husband, however, are great as ever.

That sure look like a dog with a 'tude to me, Ruth!  [chuckle!]

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 10, 2013 at 5:17pm

Dogs can  be funny too, sk8eycat. This is Tuna the Chiweenie.
