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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

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

Yuck, Kathy--ear mites sounds awful! Can't answer your question.

Hope Carl makes it through today. He'll be on my mind.

Carl, you are probably asleep by now. Healing will begin soon. I echo Randy's statement that you should not feel obligated to notify us; we are a patient lot. So when you feel up to it we will be here.

It sounds worth a try. I use it to treat dermatitis in my ears.

Here's an off the wall question. I read on a natural remedy site that hand sanitizer would cure ear mites.
Does anyone see any harm in this? I've tried the regular otc treatment but it's oily and gets dangerously close to the eyes.

That quote's a keeper Joan.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 17, 2015 at 8:07am

Great quote, Joan.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 17, 2015 at 7:56am

That's a keeper quote, Joan.  Thanks!

Carl, I'm going to focus on the good news--the road to recovery and a long life. Here's wishing you good luck to a successful operation. Remain positive. And don't feel obligated to keep us informed.
