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

I agree with Loren. Enough is enough with that moggy.

Hope your usual vitality returns soon, Joan. You still have energy enough to take an interest in the world and to post her so it can't be far away.

My impending doom would probably be the only thing that would make me eat celery but I would probaby need something for the nausea afterwards. I think it tastes like dirty water.

Awwww but look at face Loren!!

Another treasure, this time a car tunnel between Sweden and Norway. 

We could have well trained engineers who could build bridges  and not have them fall in the rivers of the USA.

Patricia, I appreciate your expression of how you felt ... there is no bogeyman man picking on me. Cancer treatment is what it is. I slept virtually all day today with no appetite. I feel no pain, and have good cheer, just my body feels like limp celery. 

Ruth, thanks for the celery and parsley clue. Cary cleaned out the parsley bed for me today, and we will be able to harvest it without bringing in a lot of weeds.

All-in-all, it is a good day.

Ruth, I an glad to see another photo of the bridge. I wonder how they keep it from overflowing, as well.

Here is another Netherlands car tunnel under the sea. Very creative folks. I hope Chris will help us know more.

I'll be honest ... that stupid cat is beginning to get on my nerves.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on May 26, 2013 at 8:42pm

Sorry to hear you're feeling punky, Joan. Ant-creepy bones, *cringe*.

The Moses brideg is interesting, but wouldn't it be easily flooded?

Although my nausea and diarrhea Rx work, I feel punky. I'll be in bed or in the garden, just observing my body as it processes the chemicals. The bone marrow shot made an odd feeling in my arms and legs, my shoulder blades, and it felt a little like ants running up and down inside my bones. Talked to the staff, it is a normal feeling. OK, so a new normal is being established. 

Cary cooked a delicious meal last night, and I enjoyed it. Food has lost its appeal, however.
