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.

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

Yes, Melinda, it's too bad we can't meet at 30,000 feet.  That would have been fun.  Remember:  Always put your own mask on first, then help children or others near you.  :)

It is snowing again!

Ian, I am sorry you didn't have Carol Burnett in Denmark! Her slapstick humor just outrageously funny. Everything she did was gross exaggeration of real life; kind of like Charlie Chaplin. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 5, 2013 at 2:48pm

I love the jigging cat, Steph. Oh to have such energy!

We had three days of snow last week, but up to 50s this week and not below freezing. Hoe your temps modify too, Melinda. Your puppy feeding bowl looks sweet. 

That handsome squirrel in snow compels me to want to let him in ... big mistake ... my neighbor had a squirrel in her home and it was a disaster, perhaps caused by the dog and cat trying to catch it. You sent a great photo Carl. 

Your cat with fish cocktail and without have great expressions. 

Patricia, I didn't realize Carol Burnett's show was 11 years! Her humor is priceless and timeless.

Just got round to watching the videos. I don't know who Carol Burnett is but it looks like she and the others had a lot of fun making the programmes.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 5, 2013 at 1:36pm

Steph, thanks for the amusing Drunken Sailor Cat.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 5, 2013 at 12:07pm

Melinda, I'm in and out of Miami all the time but, unfortunately, not this Saturday.  I wish you happy travels and a very enjoyable vacation with your family!

Good morning, All.  Yup, the snow has started.  Expecting 8 to 10 inches.
