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.

Viruses Don't Watch FoxNews (Betty Bowers)

The above is the kind of headline which would likely send the Orange Nightmare into a royal hissy-fit ... but then, in addition to all the line-items outlined in the following video, viruses don't read, either!  Yes, I'm afraid that, once again,…Continue

Ian, I'd say our spring buds and flowers are at the same stage as yours (Indiana). Signs of hope and optimism. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, anemone and celandine together, violets in the second picture.

Here the Latin name; Ficaria verna and I found the English name lesser celandine.

Plinius, I can find nothing in the U.S. or The Netherlands searches about "weaner" except for a famous landscape designer in Pennsylvania, Larry Weaner Landscape Associates.

I also looked under "horticulture" in both languages, as well.

The yellow flower is weaner, says my dictionary.

Comment by Joan Denoo 7 hours ago

Ian, what is the blue flower? It looks a little like periwinkle (Vinca minor). 

The yellow flower looks like buttercups     (Ranunculus repens.)

A lovely place to walk and meditate.

Thanks Ian, good to see other places! Are those violets in the 2nd picture?
