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

Steph, those sweet cats make me feel all warm inside.

Loren, sounds good ... however there are so many bleating sheep with the power of law making, marriage definitions and school board decisions, I think a good loud resistance is in order.

Melinda, according to one source, the outside flesh is also edible. I don't know, I have never eaten one. But they certainly appear to be healthy.

Spud, what a wonderful photo, "To Nom? or Not to Nom? Some photographer caught a keeper with this one. Thanks for sharing.

sk8eycat, thanks so much. This woman tells her story with a lot of personal observations helpful to the newcomer on the block. I am fortunate to have found mine before it began to spread.
Ladies and gentlemen, do have your regular exams.

Joan, you may (or may not) enjoy reading this blog:

http://www.gracefulwomanwarrior.org/

Terri Luanna (Robinson) daSilva was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in Nov. 2011, and she seems to be doing just fine. Has a great attitude, and is going in to NYC for reconstructive surgery  next week. She's 38, and has a 3-year-old daughter.

Her father is one of my favorite fiction writers, and I learned about her blog on his web page.
