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.

Mike, you answered a question for me. I had to go to my dictionary for definition of iconoclast and didn't understand you until your explanation.

Melinda, you photos make me laugh and tickle my funny bone. A great way to brighten any day. The one with the black and white cats intertwined to make hearts very cleverly says I love you.

"4 Worms In Church"
Four worms and a lesson to be learned!!!!
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. 
Four worms were placed into four separate jars. 
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. 
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. 
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.. 
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. 
At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:
The first worm in alcohol . . . . . . Dead 
The second worm in cigarette smoke . . . Dead 
Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . . Dead
Fourth worm in good clean soil . . . Alive … 
So the Minister asked the congregation, 
"What did you learn from this demonstration?" 
Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said . . . 
"As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, 

you won't have worms!"

That pretty much ended the service!
