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)

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

Ian, there actually was not a patient zero. The name itself came from a typo. And it was never traced to one single person. Different strains showed up in different areas. The fascinating part was how very old blood samples were used to disprove the original theory.

Thanks, Flying Atheist. Just got internet back. It was a lengthy, frustrating experience. To tired now to actually catch up.

A really cosy fire, Daniel. Just right for the winter.

I would have thought that the spread of HIV lay too far back to be able to identify a "patient zero." The virus wasn't even identified for many years.

The orange candidate is wierd and scarier than Stephen King.

Carl, we need adult supervision.

What the hell?!  I'm gone for a couple of days and when I come back you're talking about butt plugs!  I love Europe!

Nice to know Ruth is doing fine.  Thanks for checking, Grinning Cat.

Daniel, you have such a cozy looking home. Very inviting.

It's been chilly and rainy here. I just read Halloween is forecast to be 70-degrees and that we're supposed to have a bunch of snow starting mid-November.

I'm going to be making some nice chicken recipes in the slow-cooker the next couple of days. I love filling up the freezer with meals.

IIIIEEP!!! That is scary!

I'm SCARED! (and grossed-out).

Okay, gang ... you really want to SCARE people at Halloween?  Make yourself one of THESE:

"Resembles a butt plug," Bertold?  Hell, it IS a butt plug ... for the Jolly Green Giant!

I love my 105 year old farm house, but the one thing it lacks is a fireplace. I have a wood burning furnace in the basement, but I can't watch the fire with a cup of coffee in hand.
