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.

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

Mindy, you have one smart daughter! 

Comment by sk8eycat on October 17, 2014 at 8:17pm

Mindy, there was a time when my mother used to drag me to Sunday school, and I always hated singing "Jeebus Wuvs Me."  And most of the other songs, too.  I was only 5 or 6 but I already had a feeling that it was silly.

Tomorrowland looks like it has possibilities.

Mindy, thanks for the Proof that Spider-man exists, and Jesus Loves me group psychosis funnies.  Never hear the last one before.

I've always liked the old bumper sticker that says "Zero to bitch in 60 seconds."

Comment by Plinius on October 16, 2014 at 1:06am

My American neighbour told me what bitch means: Babe In Total Control of Herself.

Mindy, I missed your post about Dale being hungry again. That is good news indeed. Hope he continues in good health.  

Patricia, I know the feeling about family members who are so tied up in religious dogma, I can't get an original idea out of them. Oh well! It is their life. I just don't like being around bible thumpers either. 

You and I can make contact and do our thinking together.
