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

This page is a treasure of beautiful, funny, sweet, playful, demanding, musical, and opinionated cats and a musical dog. I bookmarked this page. 

Thank you all for your warm sentiments and loving care. I am ready! a little nervous, but ready! 

So many women and men have suffered from this dread disease and we could make a big difference if we got together and worked for universal health care. 

My heart goes out to those who cannot afford health care coverage and get slammed with this monster. Especially if they don't get early diagnosis and treatment. 

A very dear friend stopped by my garden yesterday and we had a lovely visit ... she told me that 3 or 4 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer, chose to not go through the protocols of the medical community, and used diet and homeopathy remedies. This week she discovered the cancer has spread all over her body. She starts chemo next week too.

I know many people put great faith in diet and homeopathy, and it would be fine if they tracked her. But they didn't and she put her trust in remedies that had no track record. There was a lot of anecdotal testimony, but no double blind studies. 

We really have to be smart when faced with such challenges. Please, dear friends, men and women, get your check-ups.
