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, 2017. 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

I've been getting Facebook ads about 'Meet your Muslim spouse' Meet other Christians' 'Bible studies in Israel'. I've stopped them all and reported to FB that they were 'misleading'.

Patricia, I am very happy you are back with us. I like your contributions!

Let us not forget that the Climate Change created weather conditions that dried the forests and the soils, producing a perfect condition for distressed trees that beetles attacked leaving the weakened forests vulnerable to fires when lightning storms come through.

There are those who continue to claim that Climate Change is not happening and if it is, human activity does not cause it. 

And then there are the realities of poor forest management, "idiots who toss burning cigarettes out & leave campfires burning."

The idiots are always with us, as Jeebus said. 

Comment by Patricia on August 31, 2017 at 3:32pm

We can't forget the idiots who toss burning cigarettes out, & leave campfires burning. Then there are the ones who start fires deliberately!

Good to hear that Carl.

Yes, Spud, beetle kill, poor management, & then our weather is hotter, drier, & winters are shorter. We don't get the cold temps for long enough now to kill the beetle, & the usual snow pack doesn't happen very often any more.

We're pretty much forest here, & then many ranches/farms, & wildlife. All were damaged, some beyond recovery.

Thanks for the good news Daniel.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 31, 2017 at 1:36pm

Ian, thanks for the description of the play, St. Joan, that you watched. I looked for a video and found a 1957 version that I will watch when I can. As you can imagine, I enjoy information of that Joan. 

With you love of music, shared by Carl and Loren, you should have some good guides here to help you plan your itinerary. "Chicago/Memphis/New Orleans" seem to me to be outstanding places for music lovers, and I am, sadly, uninformed about that topic. 

Comment by Ian Mason on August 31, 2017 at 1:12pm

So many places to go, to see, to experience. It's wonderful.

Comment by Thomas Murray on August 31, 2017 at 12:37pm
