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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Toney, thos photo of Annaghkeen Castle, Galway, Ireland with time-lapse photography mesmerizes me. So many thought go through my mind as I look at it. Is there life out there? How do we look to them? Will our descendants travel to such places? Very evocative.

That's okay, Joan.

Neither do I..

Steph, your story of the pelicans is quite remarkable. Good news they were tagged and could be returned and reunited.

Mike, Jesus riding dinosaurs? I don't think so!

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 18, 2012 at 11:39pm

Mike, it is so easy to get mixed up. Thankfully, this group is very willing to forgive and go on with new and interesting discoveries. 

It is time I lighten up in my contributions. I ran across this little treasure you all may enjoy. 

I wonder what this new little life will experience by the time she reaches the elder's age?

Have a good night sleep everyone.

See you all tomorrow.

Excuse me folks, I made another mistake. That is the trouble with putting my thoughts down in writing, I get caught and can't deny that I could ever do such a thing. 

This comment and photo were supposed to be together:
Nixon impose wage and price controls

1970, Inflation 6%.

1971, August 15, imposed wage and price controls.  

1971, Inflation 4%.

1971, U.S. left the gold standard.

1973, Inflation rate below 4%.

1974, Inflation rate 9%.

1974, Inflation rate double digit.

1974, Wage and price controls dismantled. 

Sorry if I confused everyone.
