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

I couldn't post a Phil Harris song without including "The Thing" which is my favorite song of his.  We used to sing this at boy scout camp in the summer.  My grandmother also had this record, which actually means I have it because I acquired all her old 78 rpm records.  I have at last 3 or 4 metal milk crates full of those records.  Damn, they're heavy!

Spud, I'm totally unfamiliar with the 3Ds and their version of the Jabberwocky.  I did, however, grow up listening to the Phil Harris rendition of the Jabberwocky from my grandmother's record collection.

A few days ago, somewhere on Atheist Nexus, a post started with the word Beware.  That reminded me of the Jabberwocky song.  My favorite rendition is by the 3Ds.  They're mormon, but what ya gonna do.

I know we have a lot of cat lovers here.  Just saw this yesterday and thought I'd share.

There’s a 24-hour livestream of cats playing in a dollhouse

My last xaction with the IRS was a refund when I retired. I bought a Peugeot bike and had several $ left. Its tires collected an inordinate number of small nails from SF streets.

Very disappointing, Carl, I hate the treatment you got!

Speaking of taxes, about the middle of last year I received a letter from the IRS stating I failed to take an eligible credit and that I may qualify for a refund of up to $503.  I filled out the 3-question eligibility form included with the letter.  I was eligible for the refund and eagerly mailed it back to the IRS.  Weeks later I was so excited to see a check in my mail box from the Treasury Department.  It was my refund check!!  $13.40.  I now know what it must feel like to get poked in the eye with a stick, to be kicked when you're down, to get salt poured on your wound, to have the carpet pulled out from under you, to...

Bertold, both look interesting.

After 50 years of doing my own taxes, I finally broke down and have had a CPA do mine the past two years. It was getting too complicated, plus I was making mistakes. Believe me, for $300, it was definitely worth having it done. And I'll net $800 when it's all said and done! Now, what to do with my refund.

2 great new summer brews out, one from Sierra Nevada brewery in Chico and the other from Anchor. (I'm not one for fruity drinks, but these are so light and subtle I don't think you'd notice if it weren't on the label.

Happy B/D Chris and I hope you start beeling better Ruth.

After complaining about Ning and my ISP connection for a long time an AT&T tech came over today and proved the internet was stable while my computer was intermittently able to connect. The previous times a tech came out while the computer was working okay. This computer is about six years old.  Connecting has been difficult to impossible at times.

I’ll purchase a new computer in the next couple of days after researching what adapters are needed to hook up the peripherals. This is the fourth home computer I’ve had that ending with a component failure.

I wonder if hardened computers in cars will be any better. Imagine a self driving car with intermittent computer glitches. That doesn’t seem to be on the spectrum for approval.
