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

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius Sep 26. 2 Replies

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

Cute, Spud!

A humanist Daniel might choose to adopt "Dan" as a full name in its own right, meaning simply "judge", no invisible friends.

It's an appropriate day to repost a song about the true meaning of Christmastime, from a Southern Hemisphere and very secular perspective:

Spud, great minds run together  :-)

Comment by Randall Smith on December 24, 2016 at 7:30am

That's the one good thing I like about my name--Randy, from wolf. Otherwise, ever since I was 12 years old, when a friend made fun of my name, I've been reluctant to use it formally. So I sign everything Randall (like my A/N name), but usually go by the more common Randy. For some reason, my father called me Randi (eye) all my life.

Who was that old comedian that would say, "You can call me____, you can call me ____", etc.?

Comment by Plinius on December 24, 2016 at 3:40am

No, they called me Christientje, a diminutive. My first friend in kindergarten shortened it to Chris and  that felt like a real name, so I kept it.

Comment by Plinius on December 23, 2016 at 12:24pm

They told me my name (Christina) meant - belonging to christ. Which made me very angry.

Chris, funny. I try to use bruised fruit before it goes bad instead of picking the prettiest pieces.

Other Chris how I'm I going to distinguish between the two of you? I suppose I'll go back to Plinius!
Daniel, I envy your talent and stamina. Taking on such a large project. It's looking good.
Comment by Plinius on December 23, 2016 at 10:59am

You and I have the same first name.

Bertold, lol. I was going to go with cheap ;-)
Chris, maybe survivalist. It's the only one that comes mind at the moment.
Eat that before it gets rotten.
