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 didn't think about Charlie.  I too think Charlie must also feel the loss.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 26, 2017 at 2:25pm

Daniel, I don't see my comment about Baigou and want you to know that I read your statement, I responded that day, and am very sorry for your loss of Baigou. Charlie must feel the loss as well, and I hope he can ease the grief a bit for you.

Here, I've not heard of a 911 connection on a disconnected landline.  Of course, I disconnected mine about 17 years ago, so it may have changed since then.

I keep all my old cell phones charged in case of emergency because they all can still call 911.  That's true in 96% of all locations in the USA and Canada.

Comment by kathy: ky on January 26, 2017 at 1:25pm
Carl, I don't know if it's true for all state's but here even if you terminate your landline att must leave service connected to call out to 911. Ours has a dial tone for that purpose. I believe your cell bill would increase. The problem in this area is at&t has the only cell towers available. The only other option is net 10 which is also an at&t provider but it's a prepay plan at $40 a month. That's all I know about it.

Randall, does the receiver box have a power cord with a protector on it?  They usually look like a short hot dog.  They eliminate a lot of that kind of thing.

Something you might try is positioning the receiver away from the TV.  I would even try putting a piece of steel plate between it and the TV.

You may already know those things, or the tech may have suggested them.  If so, delete the above comments.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 26, 2017 at 7:16am
Update: The DISH technician concluded the problem is in the television itself. The power surge when turned on disrupts the receiver box. Solution? Get a new TV or unplug the cable before turning on the telly. Brother. I shouldn't complain about such trivial matters--no big deal, I reckon.
Carl, I can't help you. I'm helpless and hopeless on those issues.

On medical cannabis I get a good deal of pain relief from it. It's especially good for muscle aches and pain. But so much of it depends on the strain and what it's purpose is. As Carl said edibles are much more difficult to judge the dosage than vaping is.
And I completely agree that anyone under twenty five shouldn't use it in any form. There are some very small studies, not done in the US, that have proven benefits in many diseases. They were ran as several episodes on CNN a couple of years ago. Im sure they were hosted by Dr Sanja Gupta.

Randall, dish is a poor provider and even worse about fixing problems. I'm sure you remember what I wrote a few weeks ago about dish trying to charge me for their worn out equipment. Anytime we have a storm, or even heavy rain, we loose signal. If it's not to late I would suggest you change providers now. Only a suggestion.
