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.

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

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Thank you, all for the congratulations and good wishes.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 12, 2016 at 4:59pm

Thanks for the advice, k.h.ky, but that won't be necessary. My procedure has been postponed till the 19th, due to bronchitis, and the instructions finally arrived by mail. Wow, 30 degrees in 4 hours!

Congrats on your daughter's engagement, Ian.

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 12, 2016 at 4:35pm

Ian, I'm glad to hear it! And what wonderful wishes from Joan to his daughter and her fiance... all couples should have that!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 12, 2016 at 3:18pm

Ian, very nice proposal, so romantic. Maybe your daughter's generation will restore some romance into relationships. It seems to me that my generation lost the pizazz of romantic love. Or maybe I have forgotten, it was so many years ago. 

I wish them a life of good communication, shared responsibilities, and love, even the passionate kind. 

Comment by Ian Mason on January 12, 2016 at 5:41am

I'm sure that will follow in the next couple of years. Looking forward to it.

That's good news Ian. Maybe you can be in the grandparents club if you're not already. Grandkids are fun.

Just been told by my daughter that she's getting married. They haven't set a date yet but her bloke went down on one knee and produced a ring Saturday evening. How nice!

Our temps dropped almost thirty degrees in about four hours last night. The rain turned into about an inch of snow. It's a chilly 18° out now.

Ruth, you should call the hospital and find out. I don't remember the before instructions or if I was given any. You could find it on google too.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on January 8, 2016 at 6:43pm

I haven't even been given any instructions yet, and it's now the weekend before. About bleeding from the artery, I'm taking 3 g of fish oil/day and some e as well. Nobody has suggested I stop. Will they say the night before the operation that I shouldn't take fish oil or e for a week before the procedure? Do you remember your instructions? My time machine is broken.
