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

Good afternoon, sk8eycat.  Wonderful video.  I laughed a lot.  Very cute.  Good luck with your interview. 

Comment by sk8eycat on September 12, 2013 at 10:55am

Good Morning.  I have to go interview a dog about a 4-week house-sitting job.  In the meantime, I'll leave you with this (if the link works)

YouTube pulled the account with the cat-and-bell video; I posted what looks like the original in Atheist Ailurophiles: "Well-trained humans".

Aww! Thanks for Happy GrandPawrents Day, sk8eycat.

I’d heard of Ameraican Sweet Gum, but not by the name Liquid Amber. I had no idea they were so troublesome. Catalina Cherry trees sound like a nuisance too near your house.

Booklover, I never realized that we’re lucky to only have trees  growing behind the house and sewer pipes only in the front. Your daughter’s boss and his wife don’t sound like the nicest people to work for. But my experience is most bosses aren’t great to underlings. Power makes people less empathic and more certain that their opinion is right.

Flying Atheist, just yesterday my husband and I were enjoying the way a woman’s ponytail bounced so sprightly as she jogged on a treadmill. ROFL over your cat monopoly ad.

Patricia, Futan is great! Thanks for the link.

I loved this video of a guy massaging a cat.

That cat has such an attitude, pushing the bell! I wonder what else he wants us to do...

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 11, 2013 at 11:58am

Grinning Cat, I love the cat video with the bell.  Thanks for posting.

That monopoly cat video was made by Parker Bros. as a promotion to advertise the fact that the cat game board piece is a new addition to the game.  It won in a popular vote.  I thought it was a cute video.

Carl, thanks for the giffs and Monopoly cat. Clever.
