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

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

Daniel, us dog lovers always want what's best for them. If they can pass quietly at home that would be wonderful. I wish that for you and yours.
I've never been that fortunate. It's always been traumatic and unexpected. Seizures in one, cancer in two, a heart attack with another. And these are dogs with regular vet care and the necessary preventatives. I grieve hard. Swear I'll never get another. Then always do. I tell my gdaughters that the time we had with them is more than worth the pain of losing them.

Head and shoulders? Is got to try that. Sweet E has allergies bad. Scratches constantly. I give her a benydril (sp?) every six hours. And lots of exercise chasing the ball. Weather permitting.
The vet put her on a pill that totally stopped the itching for about a month. Then I had to take her off of it because of the side effects. She started vomiting around week three. Then lost her appetite and started losing weight. Became lethargic. Within a week of stopping the med she was back to scratching but otherwise healthy.

Lol Carl. That's a good one. I can't figure out how she got them in her little, squashed, mouth :)

Kathy, I suppose you'll know when your boston is finished collecting eggs when you have an even dozen?  :)

Ruth has been missing the last few days. And grinning cat too.
Comment by kathy: ky on December 6, 2016 at 10:41pm
She brought up two more unbroken eggs today. I'm sure that's all of them now. Because she went out in the pouring rain to get the last one and she hates rain :)

This is my second boston and both have been the most gentle dogs I've ever been around. With everyone and everything. I had Rottweiler's when I was younger and they were wonderful too. And, with the exception of one, also very gentle.
Daniel, how is Charley doing? I hope he's still well and comfortable.

Carl, what a facinating pile-up!  I found some of it amusing, but I've slid out of control on ice before, and the loss of control and worry about the what I might hit was the opposite of amusing.  Luckily, I never hit any vehicle or person.  Just broke a barb-wire fence once, and ended-up in a deep ditch once.

I've changed service providers several times. Direct is the best provider. Both user friendly and better quality signal. With fewer outages. I catch them on a fixed price deal.
Dish tried to sale me a monthly warranty on the equipment they lease to me. I always thought leased equipment was covered by the company you lease from.
Comment by Idaho Spud on December 6, 2016 at 11:27am

Very good Kathy.  It appears to me those providers charge way too much. 

Also, what a good dog you have.
