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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jan 17. 10 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Catopiary!

Sorry to hear about your suffering, Chris. Sad situation, indeed.

Comment by Patricia on March 24, 2018 at 1:36am

Yes, & tiny enough to keep hidden too.

Nice, Patricia!

Comment by Plinius on March 24, 2018 at 1:31am

Interesting text about the Atacama mummy, Patricia! It made me think of the old "freaks" pictures, known from old sideshows. People with strange deformities are born all the time, and most of them are hidden away in dark corners, so nobody thinks about them apart from the parents. This mummy must be one of them.

Allergy free topiary.

Thanks all! When I left the hospital the dermatologist was fighting the allergologist, but still - listening is a rare quality.

The medicines seen to do something, so perhaps I'll be back to normal in some time.

Chris, that's horrible. Itching like that must be horrible. I think a lot of these problems come from doctors (and others) doing things 'by the book' instead of by the patient, following standard routines instead of listening.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 23, 2018 at 6:03pm

Plinius, what at awful experience! I wonder why she didn't pay heed to your caution about nickel; I am certain she will listen more carefully from now on.

The 6 inch height really threw me......
