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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…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 see some businesses are finally pulling out from NRA support.

Is this some sort of collective insanity or a cruel mocking of grieving families? Surely some kind of protest is called for.

I looked up 'AR-15' online and the original version sold to the public was a sporting/hunting rifle with a 5-round magazine which was suitable for ranges or out in the woods. Manufacturers have obviously seen money to be made in producing 30-round clips for the paranoid, trigger-happy 'macho' men. Profit is more important than lives, obviously.

They should start by shooting each other so they can be heaven bound right away!

Comment by Plinius on February 24, 2018 at 1:05pm

So the next school shooting might be with a blessed gun - a ticket to heaven?

To answer Ian's question:

Honduras, especially the capital, Tegucigalpa, is a pig sty. People more than "litter"-- they dump. Garbage of all kinds line the streets. The huts they live in are deplorable. Men urinate out in the open. The streets and traffic are nightmarish.

Outside of Teguc, it's not much better. Only the scenery is nicer. Why my daughter and husband enjoy living there is a mystery to me. They just have the compassion and faith to help the needy. To me, it's a spit in the ocean.

I understand the president (Hernandez) is trying to do something, but the present culture prevents a total makeover. It's quite sad and depressing.

Thanks, but am not up to speed with learning my way around it just yet, so am still on the old one for now.
