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)

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

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

Flying Atheist that is so funny. I love it.

Patricia I love those flowers. So beautiful.

Patricia, I think if something bad had occurred you definitely would have had some news.  Keep in mind that moving is very stressful, especially from one continent to another, and that daily routines are disrupted.  When you don't have regular access to internet or your own phone it's hard to keep in touch.  I say give them a bit more time to settle in.  Perhaps phone lines and internet connections are still in the process of being hooked up.

Happy anniversary Patricia.

Smashing pic, Carl. Yes, a big hug to Felaine.

Joan, I hope the after/side effects of the chemo are  tolerable and that you can enjoy the view from your window.

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband, Patricia.  And I hope you are also enjoying your holiday.

Patricia, I think (I HOPE) that today's weather forecast is WAY wrong.  By this time yesterday we had the house closed up and  the A/C running full blast.  Today we still have the windows open and one small fan blowing in my bedroom only.  It's overcast, breezy, and slightly muggy, but nowhere near as unbearable as it was yesterday.

Mayybe Joan forwarded some of her weather down here.  ;>)

Group Hug for sk8eycat....

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 1, 2013 at 12:30pm

Felaine, relax and make yourself a Bloody Mary.  (After you see the MD.)

Comment by sk8eycat on July 1, 2013 at 12:05pm

Oh, my friends!  Last night I wrote an eloquent (I thought) thank you for all your kind words and sensible advice, and my effing computer froze up before I could click "Add Comment."  When I was able to get back  in here, it was gone.  Naturally.  So I said a few dirty words and went to bed.

Yesterday was NOT my day.

I'm here, I'm all right, and I'm still carefully trying to get the rest of the red stuff out of my hair without causing more damage.  I just talked to my MD, and she chewed me out, too, for not going to the ER....

You all are right, and I was wrong...shrugs...I haven't been very intelligent lately.

Anyroad, I wish there was some way I could hug you all...I appreciate every one of you SO MUCH!

And Joan, please send some of that cold rainy weather down here!  It's been in the triple digits for almost a week.  MUCH too early....whatever happened to "June Gloom" in SoCal?

(I'm hoping that the hills aren't so dry that the city has to cancel the annual fireworks show...or move it to one of the high school football fields that we can't see from here.  I love those elaborate displays.  They're magic...I keep saying, "Wow!  How do they DO that?")

Cheers, and thanks again.  And I think I'll stop using "bloody" as a cuss word.  For a while anyway. *snicker*
