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

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

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.

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... ;-)

I returned yesterday from a wonderful week camping along the shores of Lake Michigan. We (Wilderness Volunteers) worked on trail maintainance, beach cleanup (litter and dispersing old campfires), and knapweed removal. Tiring work, but satisfying. Nice to be back in my own soft bed!

Comment by Randall Smith on September 18, 2016 at 7:51am

My father suffered from Meniers for 50 years. He'd be bed-ridden for a day or two. So I know how you must be suffering, Chris. He never found a treatment. However, he didn't go deaf and lived to 97--good news for you.

Comment by Plinius on September 17, 2016 at 10:21am

Thanks, Spud! Ear specialist shortly, and we'll see what advice I'll get there.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 17, 2016 at 7:06am

Sorry you have health problems Plinius.  When you start with hearing aids, I'll be interested in hearing your results.
