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

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

Carl, I am so happy to receive your news. Of course, you had a terrible shortness of breath. It really was inevitable. Now that you start dialysis and get some cleaner blood pumping through your veins you will be feeling better. And that does mean some resolution with your heart. The heart has to do the pumping. I don't know what role dialysis plays in getting your cleaner blood flowing, but I surely hope that issue is resolved very soon. Do take care of yourself ... I don't have to tell you that. I know your family is your greatest team and couple that with an excellent medical team, you have the possibility for renewed energy. I'm going change possibility to probability for renewed energy. 
Here's a motherly hug and a big fat kiss on your cheek.

Glad you're feeling better Carl.

Just got released yesterday after spending three days in the hospital.  I went into the emergency room Wednesday evening with terrible shortness of breath.  I had fluid in my lungs and they ended up starting me on dialysis.  I've had two sessions of dialysis and I already feel better.  Starting Monday I start a regular three-time a week schedule.  Still waiting for an evaluation from the cardiologist about what to do regarding my heart issue.  I've been avoiding dialysis, but now, to be honest, I'm glad I'm doing it because I'm feeling better.

Life is what happens while you're doing something else, for some anyway. Nice one, Joan.

This is just too funny! Missing out on life with a cold piece of machinery glued to his ear!

Temps are fluctuating wildly.

Cat, we were -12 last night. It warmed enough to rain today. Back to the cold tomorrow night.

Grinning Cat, I guess it is just as well I didn't get BDSM, not exactly my cup of tea. Now Loren's cartoon looks funny. Thanks. 

Ruth, that storm shouts out, UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERNS! Maybe people deny weather change but they can't deny this.

Going from 7 degrees tonight to 46 degrees on Sunday ... OhOh that spells flooding in my neighborhood and if I remember my Washington  DC years, there is a lot of @ sea level ground. 

I think it is time for me to stop complaining about not having enough snow. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on February 20, 2015 at 10:54pm

Yup... going down to 7 degrees tonight. Some snow tomorrow afternoon; but 46 degrees on Sunday.

I'm right here with you Ruth. Stinks doesn't it.
