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

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius Sep 26. 2 Replies

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

Thanks Ian! What are your comfort books? For me - Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman, Rowling or Heinlein - I'm hiding in Variable Star today.

Knock knock.

Tell me some stupid innocent joke please. I feel so overwhelmed by bad news that I can't take more - Nineveh, killings by the US police, atheists killed, tortured or disappeared. I think I won't read the news for some time and take refuge in comfort books.

Lady Gaga was just in Chicago this morning taking the icy "Polar Plunge" into frozen Lake Michigan.  It's a yearly event to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Last year Jimmy Fallon took the plunge after a dare from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

I wish I could join you, Ian! I remember several concerts held in Tivoli Gardens back in 1967. Love Tony and am beginning to appreciate Lady Gaga. (I was touring Europe on bike that summer.)

WaaHoo! I've just bought a ticket to see Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Copenhagen, July. Looking forward to it already.

Ian, sounds like a wonderful trip and visit with your daughter and her bloke. Laughter makes life so much healthier. Glad you were able to share it with with.

I repost your quote Loren and thanks. 

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end.

I just realized that Patricia and sk8eycat no longer have their names on this membership list. 

I was in contact with booklover/Mindy on Facebook for a few days and am now blocked. 

It is like losing friends even though they were internet friends. 

It remains my sincere hope that we can handle conflict in ways that enrich our lives.

Sad news indeed. "Spock" was once asked what Vulcans felt about death. "He" answered "curiousity". An apt reply for a logical and inquiring people, I thought.
