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, 2017. 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, 2017. 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

Big bummer Randall.  

Comment by Plinius on January 25, 2017 at 7:31am

Dire straits, Randall! They could go on forever like that.

A fourth DISH technician is to arrive in about 30 minutes. This is beginning to get silly. To refresh your memory, my screen comes on with a pink picture, then freezes. I have to unplug everything and wait 15 minutes for it to download. Very aggravating. I keep calling and they keep sending out someone new. This could be the final straw.

Spud, yes, I switched my avatars to black-bordered upside-down flags for President* Don the Con Trumputin's inauguration, since I don't have a house front from which to fly a physical one.

I'll switch to a filtered version of my usual one now.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 23, 2017 at 2:06pm

Grinning Cat, is your upside-down flag because of Trump?

I was thinking about flying a flag at half mast, but don't want to get any hate from the mormons here.

Daniel, I'm so sorry to hear that Baigou is gone! Irving Townsend was so right about the furry friends in his life succeeding, not replacing, one another.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 22, 2017 at 9:13pm

Daniel, sorry to hear about Baigou. The loss of a beloved pet is always difficult.  

I've never ingested marijuana through a food source, but I've been told that you have much lesser control over dosing amounts using that method.  It's much easier to regulate it by smoking, but of course the act of smoking in itself is a drawback for your lungs.  Personally, I think the frequency of use probably matters more.

I recently read that regular marijuana use can be detrimental to teenagers because their brains are not fully developed, which occurs around age 25.  

I like alcohol now and then.  I really love wine and gin and tonics.  I'm very conscious of babying my new kidney, as you could imagine, so my alcohol intake is extremely limited.  When I was a flight attendant I was subjected to surprise random drug and alcohol testing, so not much has changed.  I guess I could start smoking pot now if I wanted.

Daniel, a real bummer losing your dog. When I lost my dog, I rushed right to the humane society and got another. It helped a lot. Your decision.
Comment by Chris on January 22, 2017 at 12:56am

Yoga, or Tai Chi  excercise is a good way to help improve balance and  muscle tone.

There is a TV show here in the San Francisco bay area produced by a nurse called Sit and Be Fit that is excelent for people with limited mobility.

I've had trouble posting lately so I have to catch up.

Ning is troublesome.

On Ginger ail

Vernors is good. for helping with stomach problems.

I haven't seen Vernors in the supermarket here lately.

Manybe because it's condidered a "drug,"

Or because Pepsico hasn't been able to by them out.
