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

Hi Ruth. Where you been? I hope all is well with you and yours.

Hi, all. Sorry I haven't been around lately.

I "inherited" a G.F. grill from my father and just recently used it to grill a bisonburger. WOW, was it delicious! You'll love yours, Carl.

Ditto on the video, Joan. Yes, "sorry".

A very good video, Joan!

Have a good trip, Randall.

Here in Denmark the winds been in the east for some days, blowing hard all the way from Siberia. Snow is predicted for Thursday and the following period.

Carl, is the warming to kill germs? I had a sil who had a transplant. The transplant went very well but little sis wasn't one to follow rules. She was diagnosed with diabetes at age two and the treatments weren't nearly as good as now. The drs predicted she would live to be twelve. She made it to thirty one and could have lived much longer if she had taken better care of herself. But she grew weary of all the needles, meds, and hospital stays. She smoked, ate whatever she pleased and drank to much. But that little woman had fun during the short time she was here. She wouldn't have had it any other way.
She was my dear friend.

I'll second Carl's sentiments.  The Mississippi River flooding has gone WAY over the top, and I shudder to think who all that event has hammered.  I just hope it hasn't hurt YOU, Pat.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 4, 2016 at 6:20pm

***Pat, I'm been thinking about you because of all the flooding taking place in southern Illinois.  I hope you are out of harm's way and not affected.***

Joan, a friend of mine loved and raved about his Foreman grill.  And, if you recall, earlier last year there was a conversation in the Nexus "Food" group where several people lauded praise upon the grill.  I guess that's what ultimately sold me.  I mentioned the grill casually to my parents and they ended up purchasing one for me as a gift.  

Because of my kidney transplant, I have some food recommendations to follow for safety purposes.  I'm a big fan of deli meats and sandwiches, but now deli-sliced meats are not recommended unless steamed or warmed/cooked.  The same applies to certain cheeses.  The Foreman grill will allow me to make many different "warm/cooked" sandwiches.  Can't wait to get started!
