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.

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

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

Canada is large & BC is just one province. Many have no idea how big it is here. For instance, from my city of Williams Lake to Vancouver is about an 8 hour drive, & we aren't even halfway up the province.

Patricia,

Thanks for the post map of B.C. superimpose over California. The magnitude of the B.C. landmass is overwhelming. I didn't realized the extent until you showed the map.

Ian,

As long as we continue to have these religious climate deniers nuts in our government, the longer it will take to recover. Sort of like cancer... it goes into remission but later metastasize into another generation of religious wackos. The Besty De Vos Prince family is a fine example, or Ted Cruz.

Less and less of the world is fit for human habitation. What a mess people have made of it and those who try to change things are still ridiculed as 'tree huggers'. How bad does the situation have to get before the great mass of people begin to DEMAND that the Earth be respected?

And then there's the Simpsons version.

Carl - how did the droogs crash La Grande Jatte??? Not the most harmonious venue for a bit of the olde ultraviolence!

I know it does that in California, & it can happen in BC too, but the rain hasn't been enough. It quit after an hour or so, & we need weeks & weeks of it to do anything.

Fires are still burning, evacuations are still occurring, & some fires will continue to burn now until next spring, when we'll start all over again.
