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

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

There's more than enough rain here in Denmark. Pity it isn't an exportable product, although I'd send it to East Africa if it was.

Seems like most of my comments have disappeared.  I hear no rain for most of Texas till October - now that is bad news.  I vote for a rain dance, and any one who gets rain send some our way.

But a rain dance would at least be colorful and interesting to watch! LOL!!

Yet, they would laugh if a Native American did a rain dance.

It IS kind of funny how many of us around here are actually Texans, though! I'm never embarrassed to be from Texas, because I truly love it. But I am ashamed of a lot of our politicians and the amount of religiosity here. So disappointing and infuriating. And because of it, there are a LOT of hypocrites, too. I'm kind of shocked by how many people that I knew in high school or college who are now super, super religious. Kinda disgusts me.

Dave Silverman, of American Atheists, was on Fox and Friends this morning (Sat) and said the Hair Man was using religion to direct attention away from his own failure to fix problems in Texas.

Candace and Alyson~ I've been to Texas and explored its variety of habitats. No doubt about it, Texas is a starkly beautiful, yet occasionally plush, place. My attitude isn't shaped by the natural wonder of it, the climate, the sunsets, or the warm, arid days that tamp down anxiety in the cowboy heart. It's about the people...and even then, it's only about the people when they gather in self-suggestive mobs and chant religious spells to invisible, omnipotent authorities and then claim that personal revelation has occurred. My problem is with Texas when it's crazy. Unfortunately, it has more than its share of that. Who knows why.

A funny reply to what church to you belong to is : Pastafarian.
