Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe (Eric Whitacre)

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

I hope to hear good news about your knees Plinius.

Comment by Plinius on January 20, 2017 at 2:21pm

At last I made an appointment at an orthopedic clinic, high time I get some help with my poor knees. Walking is difficult, climbing stairs more difficult.... you all know stories like that. So I can sit back, wait for the appointment and allow them to help me.

Thanks for the information about Nat Geo Joan.

I havent seen the GIZMODO web site before.

Some say canabinoids are part of the human brain.

Alcohol, as I understand it was historically used because water wasn't safe to drink.  W.C. Fields said many things about the advantages of drinking alcohol over water including: "Fish f*ck in it."

Hopefully National Geographic won't turn into something like TLC (The Learning Channel).

Sister Wives, Kate Plus 8, Little People, Big Wrold, Paranormal Lockdown, Say Yes to the Dress, My 600-LB Life. and etcetera.

Why is it called "The Learning Channel?"

Comment by Randall Smith on January 19, 2017 at 7:21am
WOW! What a great "welcoming back" response--totally unexpected! Thank you. To answer Kathy's query, I stayed overnight in Hopkinsville where it rained a little. But otherwise, I dodged it all and had dry pavement 99% of the way.

Randy, Welcome home to the Indiana air after all that hot air of Florida. I'm delighted to learn you had a very good time.

" that Australian media mogul and climate change denier Rupert Murdoch has purchased a majority stake in National Geographic, a magazine and scientific organization that has been staunchly non-profit since its first issue in 1888."

"National Geographic is going commercial, partnering with 21st Century Fox to create a new for-profit venture: National Geographic Partners (NGP). NGP will gather under a single umbrella not just the magazine, but also the cable TV channels, studios, maps, digital media, and pretty much everything else associated with the venerable brand. At least the National Geographic Society will remain firmly in the non-profit sector (for now)."

National Geographic Is Now Owned by a Climate Change Denier

"In exchange for $725 million, the National Geographic Society passed the troubled magazine and its book, map and other media assets to a partnership headed by 21st Century Fox, the Murdoch-controlled company that owns the 20th Century Fox movie studio, the Fox television network and Fox News Channel.Sep 9, 2015"

Welcome back, Randall.

Bertold, speaking of alcohol, one of the weekly podcasts I listen to is the BBC's "In Our Time" with Melvyn Bragg.  Last month his panel discussed "The Gin Craze" that occurred in Britain during the 18th Century.  Very interesting listening.  Here's the link if anybody is curious.

By the way, I highly recommend the "In Our Time" podcast in general.  It covers a vast array of subjects and time periods.  I really look forward to new episodes.
