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

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

When this company ran out of shovel sized boxes, it got creative:

Those companies are disgusting!

Better yet, hang up without saying anything.

Never say yes.

If a telemarketer asks a question, such as "Can you hear me?"

Bertold, cute play on words.

Thanks Chris and Carl. I think both commercials used the "try it, you'll like it" phrase. Hundreds of ads pop up in daily conversations (i.e. Wendy's "Where's the beef?"). We had better not get started!

Thanks for the microwave tips. I'll look for one that contains a convection oven so I can get rid of the toaster oven to clean up some of the kitchen clutter.

I purchased a referigerator from Sears. I don't remember the brand name. I understand that there are a few referigerator manufactures in the U.S. that sell under different brand names. It only lasted about five years.

My dentist told me to brush my teeth with baking soda. He said that neutralized the acid in the mouth which decreases cavaties. It also helps with acid reflux. He also said to sleep with a sativa soft lozenge between my cheek and gum. That prevents dry mouth and bacteria eats the sativa rather than attacking the teeth. I use Salese brand. An additional benifit is no morning breath.

I thought of Speedy Alkaseltzer not long ago. Belief is just, a swallow away.

My old microwave oven is Whirlpool, and has been running for many years.  Of course that's only a sample of one.

Amusing add.

I tried it.  I liked it.

When I was living at home, I used lots of Alka-seltzer, because I liked the taste, and Dad was paying for them.  Now, I use Tums.  Much cheaper and works just as good or better.

Actually, I just stopped using Tums because they stopped making sugar free Tums, and my supply just ran-out.  I get acid reflux most often just before bedtime when I've brushed, flossed & etc, so I don't want to put any sugar in my mouth at that time.

I finally found some Kroger brand (Fred Meyer) sugar free replacements for Tums, and will be trying them out the next time I need them.
