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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Oh, la, Joan!  My friend who writes, edits and publishes The Pet Press gets hung up with "it's" and "its," and I would get on her case about it when I was working as her proofreader.  I finally made a small poster, in the largest font that fit a sheet of printer paper, "IT'S MEANS 'IT IS' - NOTHING ELSE!"  I put it in a stand-up frame, and gave it to her for Hanukkah. 

I think she still has it on her desk.

Patricia, it reminds me of an old, OLD joke where a small church held a mass pre-easter baptism at the local river. It had been a hard winter and there was still a layer of ice on the river.  So the men brought pickaxes, and chopped a hole in the ice large enough to allow the baptisms to be done...quickly. 

The first candidate waded out till he was in water up to his waist, the minister said the required words, grabbed the guy by his collar, and dunked him in the icy water.  BUT his hands were stiff from the cold, and he inadvertently let go of the first man, and the river current carried him under the ice and away.

The minister looked stunned for a few seconds, then he turned to the horrified crowd standing on the riverbank, and shouted, "Another brrrrotherrrr gone to glorrrry!  Amen!  NEXT!"

God needed another angel.  This one just happened to be 43 years old.
