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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27, 2017. 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

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

Good day everyone!  Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep?  I certainly did.....and I needed it as well.

Tony, thanks for the music.  I'm constantly listening to music.  It's such a great mood enhancer. 

This song ALWAYS makes me feel good, so I thought I'd share it with all of you today.  Hope you enjoy.

You're welcome, Felaine. I shared them because they turned up at the right time for me too.

Good morning my friends. Off to take care of stuff that's been neglected past couple of weeks, will be home later. Until then, how about some Harry Chapin? 'Sunay Morning Sunshine'.

Ian, thank you, THANK you!  I desperately needed some graphic reminders that everything is NOT always sukky!  (That's why I haven't been posting much...learned something I didn't want to know about a friend, and I've been hiding from the world, not getting anything done, reading fantasy fiction, and so forth and so on. "Hallmarks of FELAINE-ity"))

Thanks again!

Oh how sweet - thanks so much Melinda (booklover) - that's the best compliment I could ever have. Really made my day. You are the best Melinda.

Tony I am so glad to see you back -we were truly worried about you.
