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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

Patricia love the picture of your renovation supervisor.

Those National Blasphemy photos are great!!

What a great day we can celebrate.

Tony I love the quote you posted and the cat and the trees picture - so lovely.

Booklover love the dog and puppy photo. I just love coming here and looking at all the posts and pictures.

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2012 at 7:51pm

Ruth I love that picture you posted with the dogs and kitties.

Great quote Loren - I agree.

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2012 at 7:50pm

Chris that's the funniest picture! Love it!

Booklover that cat looks so hungry.

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2012 at 7:48pm

Yes Ruth - I am not liking the new format much at all. I used to go to the site daily - but now I just go whenever I think about it. I feel lost there now.

I wonder if there is a place to complain about that image Ruth. Maybe we should send a message to the webmaster about that picture.

Comment by Steph S. on October 2, 2012 at 7:46pm

So behind on the posts here. But never fear - I'm getting caught up right now. I will make sure to look at everything.

Ruth, years ago I practically lived on the Cheezburger web site, but they've made so many changes in the past 6 months or so that I hardly recognize the place, can't find anything, and I flat "DO NOT WANT!"  I particularly dislike all the FlakeBook connections that they've added.

It just doesn't feel like "home" anymore.  So I don't go there, unless someone tells me to.  My sister still spends a lot of time there...she specializes in Trek LOLz...

Live long and prosper!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 2, 2012 at 7:16pm

Thanks for the great quotes Tony and Loren! And for the chuckle, Chris!

I'm upset because Cheezburger had a front page picture of a man smashing a woman's face, like it was something to cheer for. I always went there for cute cats, not to be virtually assaulted.

Is the cat with the really big bite yours, booklover?

Have a peaceful night, all.

@booklover and Lille: I live in Southern California...I think most of my (English-speaking) neighbors would get the joke.  We know from experience that you can't "stop" it, but wish we could.  We're ALL sort of quietly biting our nails knowing "The Big One" is 25 - 50 years overdue.  1994 was bad enough.
