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

Ian, you look great! Keep up the athletics!

That only adds up to 75%.  Something wrong somewhere.

Joan, your fire posts got me interested, so I went to https://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/statistics/res_bldg_fire_es... and they say in 2014, the causes of residential fires were:

cooking = 50%

Heating = 13%

Electrical malfunctions = 6%

Other = 6%

Glad your op went well, Joan!

Comment by Plinius on September 12, 2016 at 8:13am

Well done, Ian!

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 12, 2016 at 7:29am

Ian, you look just splendid! Like a man who loves life. 

Comment by Ian Mason on September 12, 2016 at 7:22am

I'm feeling rather tired and sore. On Saturday I took part in a ½-marathon on a new stretch of motorway. That hard asphalt is a difficult surface to run on and seems to drain the energy out of your legs. The weather was hot to with temperatures in the mid 20s C, which is the same as mid 70s F. Tough going, particularly on the long hills. Still, glad I did it and I'm doing another one this coming weekend in a more rural and scenic setting.

Me, post 21km/13 miles:

I hope your op goes well, Joan.

The number of people dying in accidents in the Western world has fallen. For example, traffic deaths in Denmark are at an all-time low with the exception of motorcyclists. They don't have seat belts, airbags or crumple zones. I think modern technology prevents  many serious injuries and fatalitieswhile medical expertise increases the chances of survival and recovery.

This is an interesting set of data: 

Causes of fatal residential building fires (2014): Cooking 8.9%

Causes of residential building fires resulting in injuries (2014): 372%

How is that working for you, Qiana? I live in a family of nighthawks, and I am an early bird; well, I used to be. Since I returned to my home, I have become more of a night hawk and life flows a little smoother when our days match up.
