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.

I've never been a tattoo or piercing kind of person.  I'm not knocking it for other people, but for myself I can't think of anything that is so important in my life that I want a representation of it permanently enshrined on my skin.  I'm not into wearing rings, necklaces or jewelry either.

That ís a tragedy, to be stuck with a bad tattoo. I wonder how many people hate their tattoos after a few years?

Awlays find a tattooist who can spell.

That's a great story, Chris.  Nice surprises are wonderful.

Randall, I had to look it up. I assume you know all about it but here is what I found. 

Ménière's Disease

Is your father able to live alone? 

I don't know what "Wet and Forget" is and Googled it. What odd instructions! The internet site only says, "just spray and walk away!" Why would anyone have to read a whole lot of instructions if it is that easy and harmless? Keep us up-to-date on the outcome.

Plinus, Oh how special! This gift from your students is a real testimony to your gentle and kind and wise nature. I can't wait to see it, even as I know your time is full now. Whenever you are ready I will be watching.

What a lovely gesture.

I love that Randall.

Thanks, Ruth and Mindy, you make me blush! But I'll post that picture.

Plinus, please share a photo of your new roof garden plant support when you've put it in place with plants. I agree, "You're so nice!"
