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

Am I the only one that can't stand Chris Mathews of MSNBC? Nor Joe Whatshisname on "Morning Joe". I hate interrupters and know-it-alls. Don't like Wolf Blitzer, either (CNN).

The snow was only for a few hours, then it became sunny and warm - some 10 degrees Centigrade.

We have lots of magnolias, Carl, but not in the wild, only in parks and gardens. And you might make VERY long lists from what I don't know about Chicago....  

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 7, 2016 at 12:13pm

Welcome back, Randy!  Glad to hear you had a nice trip.

Snow, Chris?  Sounds like you are having the same erratic weather we are having here.  Cold, warm, cold, warm, etc.  Like Randy just said, it's going to be quite warm here this week.  Normally it wouldn't be uncommon to have quite a bit of snow still on the ground this time of year...but not this year. 

Chris, pardon my ignorance but I didn't realize magnolias grew as far north as the Netherlands. 

Comment by Randall Smith on March 7, 2016 at 8:09am

Driving back north from the Florida Panhandle, I could see the changes in scenery as it got bleaker and bleaker with lack of color. Ah, but it won't be long. Indiana is supposed to have temps in the 60's all week! By the way, it was nice and sunny where I was, but great to be home to see my family and dog.

And snow today!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 6, 2016 at 6:18pm

Crocuses are up in our neighborhood, snowdrops have been open a week. I keep worrying that the robins (which have been here a week or more) will freeze, but so far they seem fine. My daffodils don't have buds, just leaves.

Comment by Plinius on March 6, 2016 at 2:36am

Yes, but mixed feelings too - we have the second bloom of daffodils now, the first one began in the week before xmas.

Chris, doesn't it give you hope for spring and summer? We're having warmer temps than usual. Temperature is predicted about seventy tomorrow. We should be around the mid-upper fifties.
Comment by Plinius on March 6, 2016 at 12:35am

I saw big magnolia buds already.

Comment by kathy: ky on March 5, 2016 at 11:50pm
My star magnolias have bloomed. Spring is almost here.
