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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

I want a squirrel for my pocket! What a wonderful story!

I see it made friends with the cat! How wonderful!

Yeah I remember my black kitty would wake me up in the morning too.

Wow! Just got to sit down by the computer and look at the posts here.

I just love the squirrels you posted Patricia!

Many Thanks! 

SO .. now on to the rest.

Once when I was staying over at a sweetie's, the alpha female among her cats awakened me at 7 AM by meowing in my ear. It was as if to say both "You're OK, you're one of the family" and "Our Majesty would like our breakfast. Now."

I didn't comply.

Great photos and sentiments. Yes, Porkchop serves us well. Pets earn  respect; love is free.

I give each of my cats a quarter can of Fancy Feast twice a day, once when I wake up and when we eat supper. But they've learned I don't respond to cat alarms.

Shed a few tears for Porkchop.

Well it's morning again.

I'm drinking coffee and getting ready to go leave for work.

Hope everyone has a great day.
