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

Would this work, I wonder?

Sleep well Joan! I'm just starting Saturday, it's 9 o'clock and it looks cooler than yesterday - such a relief!

It is fast approaching midnight. So I shall say "goodnight Chris". You must be ...?

Congrats, Joan, to have come all this way with a great attitude! I hope the rest of your program is a breeze!

And I see a duck, but the rabbit comes up now and then.

I'm glad my pc started again: it shuts down after 10 minutes at 30° - and my brain works at half power in these temperatures. How do people and PCs in hot places endure it? It must be very hard to get any work done.

Here is my thought for the day for each of us. My favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson says it better than anyone:

Melinda, I hope our husband's management heard what he had to say! Speaking out in the face of "stupid decisions" makes good sense to me, even if it is risky!

Patricia, these topics do take over one's life, what one eats, when, having to locate the nearest rest room at an instant's notice, things that taste like metal ...  Your input gives me reality checks with your determination to not give in to the beast.

Ruth, You describe the ageing process as I see it. Now, given that reality, how do we get our minds off the aches and pains? 

Chris, we got your rain dance results today, a beautiful "Maiden's Rain" as the ancient Spokane Indian tribe named it. 
"Spokanes (Spokans) maintain that their name originated when
a native beat on a hollow tree inside of which a serpent made a noise that sounded like "Spukcane." One day, they say, as their chief pondered the noise, vibrations radiated from his head, which gave the word the vague meaning "power from the brain."

How is this for a reframe. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on March 19, 2013, it is now Aug 2, 2013, I have only five weeks more of chemo treatments. I am 4 1/2 months into treatment! I am almost finished! Cancer has been foreground far too long!

OH! I feel so much better!

Do you see a duck or a rabbit?

Good morning! 7.30 and it's already 30° (85°F) in here, so I started my rain/storm/thunder dance all over again.

It seems god has taken the shape of a deer this time - I think he was after interesting smells.
