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, 2017. 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, 2017. 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

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

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

Joan and Ruth, glad you're both doing better!!

Bertold and Spud, I'm with you in liking pineapple and pizza separate. That picture reminds me of this one:

Comment by Bertold Brautigan 10 hours ago

Same here, Spud. I like pizza, and I like pineapple just fine, but never the twain shall meet.

Comment by Idaho Spud 11 hours ago

Glad to hear your foot feels normal, Joan.

Comment by Idaho Spud 11 hours ago

Sorry about your double whammy, Ruth.

Comment by Idaho Spud 11 hours ago

Funny, Bertold, especially because I'm one that does not like pineapple on pizza.

I hope your digestion has settled down now, Ruth. Gastric upsets can drain your energy, if you'll pardon the pun.

Comment by Joan Denoo 21 hours ago

And thanks to Bertold, and Loren for your friendly greetings; and Ian, thank you for the lovely bouquet of flowers

Spud, my foot feels back to normal, thanks for asking. It wasn’t a broken bone, it was a torn (something) fasciitis, horribly painful. I use my cane on uneven ground and no longer need my wheelchair. 

Living in Craig’s home is like living in the city except it is in a suburb of Littleton, over a ridge at a higher elevation than both Littleton and Denver. The ridge is of uplifted sedimentary rock with few trees except along the creek that runs from higher elevations out to the flat plaines. Coming out of the canyon, one can see flat land, as far as the eye can see. I think we could see to the Mississippi River if it were not for the curvature of the Earth.

Oh the times for a bowl of soup.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner 23 hours ago

Thanks for the Morocco pictures, Ian.

Sorry I've been absent. Got gastroenteritis on the 12th, and then, before I recuperated, inadvertently gave myself food poisoning for several days. Still have gastritis and frequent cramps. You know those baby carrots they sell, already peeled and wet, in plastic bags. We kept some too long, and I couldn't tell they'd gone bad. It took me 4 or 5 days to figure out they were causing my projectile diarrhea. I'd imagined a couple of baby carrots with a tiny portion of meat was a safe recovery meal.

Funny, Bertold.
