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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Melinda, I just got off the phone with my daughter and I described your trip with your family and how much I enjoy learning about all of you and having such fun and interesting things going on together. I hope your trip is full of wonderful events, that you just soak up all the special time building memories for the days when you rock in a chair with your memories, your hair turns white, you teeth turns brown with flat edges , and a few wrinkles cover your face. Laughter, built from good time together, makes growing older so much better.

My daughter and one of my granddaughters joins me on Sunday for "girls day"!

Have fun Melinda.

Where did the top row of "buttons" go?

Ian, I had a wonderful dentist for 45 years (since I was in high school), but have been going through hell since he retired 10 years ago. He would always stop working, inject more "stuff," and wait for it to take effect before continuing.

This one did knock $50 off the bill....

Joan that is a cute photo - love all the posts - trying to read back through and get all caught up.

Joan, that's funny.  "Did you lose a cat?"

Comment by Steph S. on March 8, 2013 at 10:20am

sorry - so far behind here. Sk8eycat I hope you are feeling better after the dental work.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 8, 2013 at 3:48am

I've got behind, so this is a bit belated.

Sympathies, Felaine. I went through 3 years suffering and of a lot of money thanks to an incompetent dentist. Dentists and drunk-drivers are the only people who should suffer capital punishment.

Yes, 50 years old is far too young to go. That's tragic.

Great cats all. They've put a smile on my face.
