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 Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

I love the story of the cat who didn't want to be laughed at, Sk8eycat!  But in some cats the sense of humor is so strong you can hear then giggling aloud. Luna plays Gotcha! when I open the wardrobe; she knows cupboards are forbidden but she loves to run into the wardrobe, out the next second and then laugh at me because she is quicker.

Last generation MauMau loved a chase. First I had to say something like: "I've had enough, get into the pan, then I'll make black soup of you." Then she began to run around with the happiest face you've ever seen on a cat, giggling and calling out:"I'm quicker! You can't get me!"  All ending in big hugs. These are games they thought of themselves and I love it when they play with me.

Oh, Felaine, I like your story and statement that most cats have no sense of humor.  It's interesting!

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 10, 2013 at 6:35pm

Love that funny ad Felaine.

Comment by sk8eycat on May 10, 2013 at 6:07pm

I know exactly why that cat is not speaking to anybody...he/she did some typically funny "cat thing," and got LOL'd at.

My fat black cat (long gone) used to play Ice Hockey in the kitchen; he'd come running when he heard me getting ice out of the freezer, and I'd put a cube on the floor for him to bat around.  One night the whole family came to watch the game, and Dad couldn't help himself...he laughed.  Helplessly.  The Devil immediately stopped playing, went to a corner, sat down with his back to all of us, and started washing his face.  It was like, "I don't know what you idiots are staring at; I've just been sitting here minding my own business."

Most cats have no sense of humor (but I love them anyway.)

Speaking of humor...here's an article about a funny Craig's List ad:

Read the whole thing.  KTHXBAI

I love the hands up tuna pizza cat, and the not speaking to you cat is funny as well.  What do you think that cat is doing Steph?
