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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

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

Speaking of shock...This is Dee Gordon of the LA Dodgers just after he was called out trying to steal 2nd base last night.  The expression and body language remind me of some of my chorus boy friends yelling, "Oh, Roll it UP, Mary!"  (ie: STOP it!  or STFU)   LOL

Oh, good pics and gifs everybody!

I am SO excited that I just have to share this with you all: Lori Golden, the Publisher, Editor, Chief Copy Writer, lay-out and paste-up person for The Pet Press is treating me to a special performance by Elayne Boosler doing an original reading along with a symphony orchestra!!! Here's a long article about it:

http://www.pasadenaweekly.com/cms/story/detail/laughter_for_life/12...

And this is the short blurb I put together for the Calendar in the most recent issue:

Oct. 6 – World Premiere “Rescue- A True Story” ~ 4PM

First Baptist Church of Glendale, 209 N. Louise St., Glendale 91206

Story & Narration by Elayne Boosler with the Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra.

“I feel nothing lends itself to music better than the top notes of comedy, tempered by the depth of emotion we, and the animals, experience every day in the world of rescue. “ Elayne Boosler. Tickets and info call: 323-663-3601 or 818-243-2539  Visit www.tailsofjoy.net/ or www.glendalephilharmonic.com

I FREAKING CAN'T WAIT!  I don't even care that it's at a Bapnit Crutch; the acoustics are supposed to be so amazing that the Orchestra has made the place its home.  As long as nobody prays, I'll be fine. *=D&gt; applause
