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

Hi, all! I've been lurking lately, rather than contributing. Too crazy, with all the political destruction - in the midst of and accelerating climate destruction. Trying to make sense of the emerging social media attention economy "Social Organism" as Luckett calls it. Finished The Social Organism but not coherent enough to post a review here.

I'm still angry that after this very questionable presidential election, we squandered two chances to avoid the Putin/tRump/Pence slate: in the face of tRump's "unpresidented" conflicts of interest and lack of qualifications, on December 19 only two Trump electors voted for other people, and on January 6 not a single Democratic Senator joined seven Democratic House members in objecting to his electoral votes.

At least 4 years.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 11, 2017 at 2:03pm

Charming and peaceful, Daniel.

Thanks for the tips. They're just the kind of things I was looking for. Is it true that the Great American Eclipse starts in January and will last 4 years?

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 11, 2017 at 2:02pm

Attractive view Daniel.

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 11, 2017 at 1:37pm

(also quietly) Yes, thanks for the lovely picture into a bit of your life!

Comment by Plinius on January 11, 2017 at 12:39pm

*very quietly* It´s beautiful, Daniel.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 11, 2017 at 4:27am

Ian, your trip sounds like a great time and timing. I loved going to the monuments in WA DC. A brilliant plan to see the eclipse. Here is a map. 

Comment by Chris on January 11, 2017 at 1:03am

Here's a map of the Eclipse if you choose to follow it Ian.

You'd  probably have to fly in a private airplane to keep up with the sun.

It may be interesting to hear what people on the ground think about it.  i.e. do they still think it's  something from god.

Comment by Chris on January 11, 2017 at 12:43am

In D.C. The smithonian and other museums are interesting to explore.  There isn't enough time to view them all.

Explore what you are interested in.
