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

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

Ah, the memories: Nancy, Joanie, and especially, Ernie. Thanks for sharing the tribute to Mr. Cub, Carl. I'm pulling out my 50's baseball card collection searching for him.

And, Carl, your assessment of today's "talent" hit the bullseye. Yuck.

Oh, wow!  I haven't listened to Nancy Wilson in Years!  Back in the '60s, I played her LPs and Joanie Sommers ALL the time.  Don't have an LP player anymore, and no $$ to replace my music with CDs....yet. 

Two more months, and I will have paid off the MasterCard I maxed out in 2009.....my laminectomy and fusion, plus a terminally ill kitteh.  The first thing I think I'll do is have my hair cut!

Sk8eycat, here's a little dose of classiness for you.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 24, 2015 at 11:57pm

Sk8eycat, we are living in the era of Kim Kardashian, Jersey Shore, Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, Snooki, Lady Gaga, and "reality" television, etc.  Do you expect there to be an ounce of decorum and talent?  The entertainment bar as been set so low that the dumbed-down audiences of today would clap and cheer the passing of gas on stage. 

Comment by sk8eycat on January 24, 2015 at 10:56pm

Oh, ick!  I have to leave the room.  My sister is watching the Nationals Jumping Contest; I can't stand it!  An arena full of teeny-boppers screaming every time some no-talent lands a little hop without falling on his/her ass.

Is it just me, or did there used to be a modicum of dignity involved in skating?  (And WHY do the female commentators sound like ducks quacking?)

Bitch-bitch-bitch!!!

My weekend has been much like yours Ian.
Carl, there's nothing I can add except good luck. I agree with the others. You seem strong and capable. We are all here for you.
Love the jokes Patricia.
Comment by Ian Mason on January 24, 2015 at 4:03pm

Some good laughs there, Patricia. Thanks.

Nice jazz, Joan. And I learned that drums are "batterie" in French.

Snow has reached Denmark and I've spent most of the day (after a little housework) eating , reading and dozing. These are good things.

How is everybody here enjoying their weekend?

"Cheezes KEEE-RISPPPP!"

*:)) laughing

*whew!*  I dunno about Carl, but I really needed that laugh!
