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)

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

A day ago, I wouldn't have believed we'd have a White Christmas here in Cleveland.  Now?  Well, have a look.

I went shopping a few days ago and the crowds weren't too bad.  But I was annoyed at the Salvation Army bell ringers in front of the doors of two stores.  I wish all stores would get smart like WinCo, and deny access to any solicitors, especially religious ones.

A Freberg classic, Carl!

California Chris, I enjoyed watching the polar bear video. Amazing.

Adding to the true meaning of Christmas, here is Stan Freberg from 1958:

Absolutely, Chris, take credit card shopping out of life There is enough to feel grateful without spending a cent and 365 days of the year to celebrate. 

One of the ways banks facilitate impoverishment of the working class is to charge OUTRAGEOUS rates. This is a way to get the middle class to pay for the concentration of wealth in the upper One Percent and have the working class pay.

This 'season' is about credit and shopping..

Are people in southern lattidudes bombarded with Northern Lattitude Xmas and Santa B/S?

As atheists shouldn't this mythology be let go?

Apparenty not.

Patricia, it took me a couple of minutes to figure-out what your post said.  Cute.
