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

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

Got back yesterday from a trip to England. Spent several days showing a friend around London and then a long weekend with family. All very nice. Will post a few pics.

Its a pitiful A, but still clearer than most claimed images of jebus.

It's a modern miracle! After a little windstorm this atheist "A" appeared on my driveway.

To me "motivational speaker" is an oxymoron, and in the later years of my life few things have been easier to hate than Windows (Apple is an exception). Yet, Bill Gates gave a graduation speech that I think qualifies as inspirational, and I don't say that sort of thing lightly. I was struck by his humble tone.

Bill Gates has a message for every college grad who wants to change the world

I just filled out a "rate your trip" form for the Road Scholars Tuscany trip I recently completed. I don't like doing it, but I had some concerns. First of all, no trip is perfect. Secondly, we each respond differently due to our interests and personalities. I want to be sincere without sounding picky. Overall, I will give the experience a B+ and would recommend the trip to those interested in the region.

Villages, fields and the beach, Carl. All very nice although you have to be careful when running on farm tracks. They're really just wheel ruts from tractors and rather uneven.

Daniel,

Great cities have great art, fountians, museuam, libraries, bookstores, public transportation and social events.

Of course all cities have problems with homelessness. Portland has it's share.

Ian, I'm curious.  Through what sort of surroundings did your marathon take you?
