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)

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

The most relaxing and sublime of all albums.

Quick! Ask it why.

I stopped wearing a wristwatch every day, Randall, when I could no longer walk for exercise at the gym.  When you use a crosstrainer or recumbent bike there's no need for a watch timer. Fancy displays tell you everything. In the house there are time displays in every room. When I'm out, the time's on my cell phone. My world is saturated with information.

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.

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

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.

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!
