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.

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

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

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

I've removed the offending spinning dog gif, because it might be cruel. He doesn't appear to be hurting the dog, but this has caused so much bad feeling among us. Let's be conservative and avoid laughing at this animal's disability.

I apologize for not checking in on all of you for a few days.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 13, 2015 at 11:50am

Spud, thanks for the link to the coffee shop. I couldn't find it either. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 13, 2015 at 10:58am

That new album I just posted gets on my nerves. The drummer is like a woodpecker pounding on my brain. Sorry, not as relaxing as I had hoped. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 13, 2015 at 10:42am

Well, I don't know what to say! Other than I am staying on this site because I gain so much from it. My dearest friends on A/N post here. 

Felaine, your input is valuable, especially when it comes to animals. I feel gratitude to you for explaining why treating an animal's tail is is so painful and harmful. The reference to C.L.A.W.S. wasn't directed to you, I am sure. Well, you would have to ask someone else because I don't really know. If I had seen my children or any child twisting an animal's tail or ears I would have put a stop to it, just on general principles.

As for myself, I feel at peace with being an atheist and no residual fear from saying so. My task now is to find ways to celebrate and affirm atheism for myself and to include those who want to join with me. I hope some fun music comes out of the atheist community. I have no talent for music or lyrics so will have to defer to others. 

Carl, a little smooth jazz, in your honor.

I wear a wristwatch when I'm out. When you're a "bus-stop cowboy" you need to know the time. I use digitals because the ordinary clockwork breaks down when I wear it.

Thanks Spud!

I can't find Learners Coffee Shack, Randall. Can you help? You talked about other groups before and I couldn't find them either.

And I wear a wristwatch, outside the house. I really need it when teaching. I've got a cellphone, but I hardly ever use it - I don't feel comfortable with the radiation. I know it's not much radiation, but I became really careful from the day my friend got breast cancer from a beeper she pinned on her clothes.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 13, 2015 at 8:47am

Randy, I think you're right about wristwatches.  Myself, I never wore one because my skin hated it.  I carried a small digital watch without the straps in my pocket until I got a cellphone.

I noticed it was friday the 13, and I say big frigggin deal!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 13, 2015 at 7:43am

For those of you that remain in this group, I'm changing the subject. 

First, not only is today Friday the 13th, but  we'll have another in March! Talk about a double whammy, that is, for those that are superstitious.

Second, does anybody wear wristwatches anymore? I seldom see them. I guess people use their phones, etc. Glad I don't have stock in Timex, etc.

One more thing: Learners Coffee Shack group is open for business. I'm usually a one person member. No disagreements there!
