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.

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Thomas Murray 13 hours ago. 4 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

A Prayer for Our Nation (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner yesterday. 2 Replies

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 11. 30 Replies

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

O, now I see! Haven't had any carbohydrates today, though...

Comment by Plinius on September 19, 2016 at 7:10am

Nappy? Napoleon, a diaper, or perhaps a brand name?

Comment by Loren Miller on September 19, 2016 at 6:46am

I wonder if "Nappy" is carb-ed out.  I can hardly look at carbohydrates these days, let alone eat them, without having to cop some ZZZs!

Lame dog lives long - that sounds much more elegant. And I like your seven dwarves!

It's been a good weekend. Yesterday, a friend who needed a shoulder and an ear dropped by so there was lots of tea and talk followed by watching "Oklahoma" on DVD. Today, for the second time in eight days, a ½ marathon run. The sun has shone most of the time too. I've eaten enough for two and am now going to relax until bedtime.

Chris, I have a brother-in-law with Menieres and he does quite well with hearing aids. The dizzy spells have diminished now he's had both hips replaced! In England it's said that "a lame dog lives long." Something like your quote in intention.

Randall, cleanup and trail maintenance sounds good, but what's wrong with knapweed that you have to remove it?

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 18, 2016 at 11:13am

I've not heard that saying Plinius.  It's amusing in a way.  

This thread reminds me that my mother has many health problems and is still alive at 96 years.  My dad died at 95.

Comment by Plinius on September 18, 2016 at 9:03am

Thanks Randall! I've always been sickly and it doesn't worry me anymore, it's just one more ailment on the list, but deafness affects my job and my social life - I don't like that at all.

You know what they about sickly people? You have to shoot them, or they'll never die... ;-)
