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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

This is a lot for one day, but we need months of winter snow to make a difference, & likely it still wouldn't be enough. Ideally it should snow some every day, with breaks in between for it to settle, before the next lot.

Comment by Plinius on December 28, 2017 at 11:21pm

Is that much snow, Patricia? Not enough I think. The news here told about snowpacks of more than a metre high.

It pleases me to see more secular (i.e., sports) stuff on the telly shown on Xmas day than anything religious. From what I could tell, there was nothing associated with Christmas on TV, not even any old "cartoons" like Charlie Brown or Frosty the Snowman. No Mormon Tabernacle Choir, either. All the regular Monday shows were on with the addition of 2-3 football and 3-4 basketball games. This is a good sign for secularism.

I haven't taken well to coercion in recent years.  Anyone telling me I "have" to go to church might discover that they HAVE to go to the Emergency Room.  'Nuff said.

As for Christian Science, Seth Andrews did a more than a little disturbing expose on them and other cult-like Christian practices some time ago.  Worth your time, if on an empty stomach!

Very good, Ian! I wish we were that far in renewable energy, but still the wrong government.

Hello Dr.  Ernest Williamson III

Like Nancy Reagan said about drugs Just say NO.

Church can be avoidable if you limitt and restrict the time of the visit.  If you are going to eat dinner at the church rather than attend mass  then enjoy the meal and the company.

Comment by Dr. Ernest Williamson III yesterday

well everyone, i'm being forced to go to church today by my parents; i'm 40 years old by the way! Atheists and agnostics are still bound by majority rule in many respects; wish me luck!
